    Luxire Custom Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread

    @luxire : Would it be possible to have shirts made from fabrics in the pants category (specifically the washable wools, and some of the heavier linens) or is that unfeasible or won't work properly?

    I'll be readying my bank account... If it's mainly thick flannel I'll definitely purchase a couple. If you have some plain woven, open weave wools I'll be in for many more...

    @spiermackay another MTO question. I've noticed you have some more work shirt style customizations in your custom shirts and I've been enjoying those and I have my pattern down. Is there any plan to have more textured/"work shirty" fabrics (potentially in white-ish)? Also, have you put any...

    I agree that their fit algorithm is a bit constraining. I was hoping PC would be a reasonably affordable place to stock up on some MTM suiting but they can't accommodate my typical trouser measurements (which aren't very far outside a normal size 36). I am happy to continue to order shirts as...

    Ok, I went ahead and got them lined. If they're still too hot I can have that removed. I also ordered swatches of the other Fresco cotton just to see exactly what they're about.

    Believe I might email them and have that changed. Interested to see how yours turn out when you get them!

    Did you get them lined? I just ordered a pair of the apple fresco unlined trying to get something for the hottest summer days here and now I'm a bit worried they may be see through. Also, does anyone know if the apple fresco and other cotton frescos are the same? The other fabrics don't look...

    I would be in for a third, high rise fit, or if rise was adjustable in the new MTO system. I've stopped buying pants and suits because 11.3" on a size 38 trouser doesn't ride high enough to stay up (Neither would the 11.7" high rise which is why I haven't ordered any). I'd like a full 1.5" extra...

    I was measured by Nick on 5/16 and just got my first shirt last night. Threw it on and it was just about perfect. Washed and dried it last night so we'll see if it shrinks any. I may increase some of the measurements a touch on my next one, but I don't like my shirts as slim as some people...

    As I have been wearing them around the house, I agree about the leg opening. I looked back at my measurement sheet and I did measure for a 9 inch leg opening, apparently when I went to order I put in 8 inches though. I think next I'll be having a pair of summer pants made up, likely a linen if...

    I agree, I went a bit looser in the hips as I can't seem to get pants without having the pockets flare out. I have a bit extra in the seat and hips, so I erred on the side of caution, plus I wanted to have some room if these were to shrink in the wash too.

    It was the beige plain chino trial pants, I don't see it listed anymore. Picture is slightly darker and a bit more saturated, but overall I'm more pleased with the fabric than when I ordered as it looked rather light in the picture. Edit: The first picture is much more representative of the...

    Ordered on February 16th, delivered today. 5 weeks total and I'm a first time customer, so I feel that was reasonable. I sent in measurements and they are about 95% perfect. I combined and averaged several measurements, mainly from a pair of thrifted pants that fit great from the hips up, and a...

    As long as she falls within the rather wide "average" I think she should be fine. My wife fits just fine and her "chest to waist drop" is significantly more than mine. Sleeves are a touch long, but she just pushes them up.

    I'd say it's on par with the other chinos I have. Maybe a little thicker, but nothing I wouldn't wear in the TN summer (I'll pull out my linen if I'm going to be out in the sun all day). Very soft, softer than my other pants. The pictures were straight out of the shipping box, so I wouldn't say...
