    Are these the wool trousers I have been waiting for?

    How much would it cost for the pure wool fabric made up as dress pants?
    I don't understand fabric weights, can you give me a comparison as to what these fabrics would be on a Super 00's scale?

    thanks.

    Wool pants now available

    You can also order these completely lined with our cotton flannel for an additional $30

    Introductory price is very wallet friendly.

    Pure wool, wool-cashmere and wool-nylon - All priced at $99.99 currently.

    Am not sure if there is a straight conversion between the S number and weight, but these are nice and heavy. Not recommended for summer.

    I will certainly try out your 100% wool trouser fabric, too bad all other wool cloths have nasty nylon. Will you add more pure wool options soon?

    Yes, they would be added in due course. Things are flowing in gradually.

    Sourcing of fabrics is a complicated process. Our quality and testing processes discourage many potential suppliers. Establishing sustainable relations takes time. We are still trying to find traction.

    As much as I'm against synthetics in clothing, some nylon in flannel pants usually increases the durability of the fabric significantly!

    I have a pair of flannels with a bit of synthetic added, and it doesn't seem to affect their breathability or appearance. Not ideal, but far from a crime against nature. :)

    Seconded, my experience has been that a little nylon content offers just a bit of stretch that aids in shape retention and thus longevity. Seems to help with flannels. Other wools do fine without it.

    For now, unstructured would be $200 while structured would be $250. Some of the heavy wool we have would not require much of a reinforcement though.

    Luxire,

    I have a suggestion for your website that might help with the custom notes ordering process. I was thinking that it might be good to have a set of options and their respective definitions and maybe some jpegs for example in a table format that could be copied and pasted into the individual orders. That would allow for some standardization but not require any kind of fancy changes to your website. For example(s):

    Options table
    Cocktail Cuffs James Bond Style cuffs. See Image
    Cuff Contrast Lining Lining on inside of cuff using different shirt fabric
    Collar Contrast Lining
    Lining on inside of collar using different shirt fabric​

    We do agree. The website has been less than satisfying for us too and it has been a problem we have been unable to solve so far.
    Might do-away with the shirt selection options the way they are and make them like the pant selection options. It will give us a lot more flexibility.

    Just wanted to give some feedback from my first Luxire purchase. I've tried another online MTM store a year ago or so, but had a bad experience with several orders and gave up. After all of the positive reviews for Luxire on this forum I decided to give them a try, and I'm glad I did. I ordered the Pale Blue Poplin 2/100, measured from a combination of measurements from my best fitting RTW shirts. The shirt arrived at my door here in the U.S. less than 10 days from ordering, which is incredibly fast for the quality of the product. The fabric and finishings were all as good or better than I was expecting, especially given the sub $70 price point and free shipping. Luxire's fit was spot on to the measurements I gave, which I certainly did not find with the other online MTM company. Overall I'm very happy with the quality and plan on making Luxire my new go to retailer for dress shirts.

    On that note, below are some photos of me in my new Luxire shirt. I generally like the fit, but would like to ask for some fit feedback on possible measurement changes for my second order.

    Thanks!

    Got my order yesterday, very pleased with everything. Could use a little tweaking on both, but not bad for a first attempt. Will try and get some pictures up for everyone to see later this week. Can recommend the navy summer chino fabric though. Lovely fabric.

    Slightly narrow the shoulders, slightly reduce the waist measurement perhaps, but overall that looks very good.

    Agree with the above, but you need to put up some clearer, non-phone photos from more angles for proper opinions.

    Thanks for the feedback, I agree with both suggestions. I'll probably take in the shoulders by 1/2", maybe 1" in the waist. Theresa at Luxire suggested that they could slope the back panel on each side to eliminate the extra fabric near the armhole at the back, which I would have never thought of but makes complete sense. I'm really happy with the final product, and Luxire's customer service is really exceptional. I'll definitely be ordering another batch of shirts once I get my swatches in.

    Sorry, I'll take some better photos next time. Was heading out the door to work and figured the iPhone photos would be okay to give a general idea of the fit.

    What do you think of the fit on my first Luxire shirt? Very satisfied with the first fit, but could be improved a little I think.

    Should I do all these small changes you think?
    1 A little shorter sleeves
    2 Slim down the body (chest, mid waist and waist measurement) a little
    3 Make shirt longer
    4 A little bigger armhole width

    Nice fit! What type of collar did you order?
