    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    An overall disappointing casual Friday trying out luxire chino pants of a million wrinkles (Spoiler at your own risk), anyone know if there's a bespoke tailor somewhere in US or AUS that can make chinos? I mean if luxire can't do it and standard sizes are nowhere near what I need, might as well just give up on casual pants and stick to regular pants

    @VirgileVerne The wrinkliness (wrinklitude?) of the pants should have less to do with the maker than the makeup of the material you've chosen. Wool fresco pants would have gone quite nicely with that jacket, and without having added nary a wrinkle to your Friday...

    EDIT: I missed that you're in Sydney--so I guess forget the fresco suggestion. Maybe flannels?

    I like this fit. Wrinkles and all. Ditch the scarf.

    Thank you! Bond villain is a look I could embrace.

    The suit is made up from a Fox Brothers lightweight worsted flannel. At least, Fox calls it a flannel, but it doesn't really have a nap to it, so it's barely a flannel. It was in the "vintage bolt" section of Fox's website a few months ago. I bought it all and had this suit made up. It's somewhere around 7/8oz. Fully canvassed, fully lined. The trousers are lined, too, partly to help them drape properly, partly to add some opacity.

    Wrinklage or wrinklicity would be my preferred option. :D

    @VirgilVerne, the pants are too tight which is exacerbating the wrinkling

    Thanks for the suggestions, I've actually got all kinds of well fitting pants around but have been trying to get into the well-fitting chinos game, and as far as I know they're all cotton.

    Perhaps, though due to my weird hip posture/curve the standard sizes (which aren't nearly as tight) can still get a lot of wrinkles, Think I'll try sending in some body measurements to try again with luxire

    I believe this is the
    • 100% Premium Cotton, 190 gms/6-7 Oz,Chino

    Haha! I suppose this might be a reason not to wear a cravat.

    Personally, I wouldn't let it stop me. But then, I tend to wear a cravat about once a fortnight, and I'm wearing one today. I don't think I look like a bond villain in my current fit... [​IMG]

    Pulled an @acutestyle move and replicated this look for much cheaper.
