    It feels like deja vu, but I'm not sure if I actually posted it before - please allow for various leg widths. I prefer a barely- or non-tapered leg (most Armani Collezioni trousers are cut like this and I love them, but they are exorbitantly priced and too often use inferior tech type materials = poly, viscose, etc. [shudder] ). Couple cuts like that with your customer service and usual great fabric selection and I'll be buying a bunch from you.

    I say this because some other well known brands and even SF affiliates only offer a single one-cut-fits-all approach. I love their materials and workmanship but find it impossible to wear their goods.

    Do you have a rough price point for the pants?

    Like our shirts, we would allow full customization for the pants too. Material is being sourced from some of the best mills in the world. Planning to offer excellent choices in 100% wool at different weights, 100% cotton and linen options.

    Wow, I am really, really excited!

    Also, I'll vote for cotton/linen blends - I'm in hot/muggy central Florida where such stuff is a blessing!

    guys - to find a great construction and detailing benchmark I suggest you grab a pair of Howard Yount pants. If you can get the construction in this league with as good fabrics and great fit I'll be a eager customer

    So, the trousers will be full bespoke as well?

    We intend to make them of the quality that Mr. Yount may want to grab a pair :)

    We have high regards for the quality that brands like Howard Yount, Panta, Ambrosi among others make. We are studying different traditional and modern styles with a goal of producing pants of the highest quality.

    Yes! It will start with your own hand-made pattern and would take a pause to only share your satisfaction.

    Have been following this thread for a while now, and it seems like Luxire is getting generally favourable reviews. I've never done the online MTM shirt thing before but I'm tempted to give it a shot.

    Pants are an intriguing new frontier. I'm interested to see how you plan to take measurements. Seems like something that a tailor will definitely need/want to consult on.

    To begin with, we will be asking for the following measurements. Customers requiring to provide other details about body type can, as usual, send us images and add specific needs to the notes.

    waist:
    hip:
    length:
    inseam:
    front rise:
    back rise:
    thigh: (taken 2" below the crotch)
    knee:
    ankle opening:

    I'm assuming those are measurements from an existing garment, not body measurements, correct?

    Yes, these are measured from an existing garment.
