    IMG_9240.JPG IMG_9244.JPG IMG_9245.JPG IMG_9246.JPG IMG_9248.JPG Hi, I wonder if I could get some help to improve the fit of my Luxire pants? I emailed and asked Luxire and they suggested that I decrease inseam at crotch by 0.75" and increase back rise at crotch by 0.75". But I believe there's more to be done to improve the fit.

    I'm thankful for any suggestions.

    Anyone know if all the fabrics on the beta site are actually available for purchase?

    I'm using beta to select fabrics, but having some issues finding them on the actual site when placing an order.

    Try taking measurements on a pair that fit and see where they differ. These look too tight around the hips and the taper is too much and begins too high. You need more material around the upper thigh so it doesn't bunch up in the seat. They are also too short by a few inches.

    It's 14 months since I asked in this thread about the denim indigo chambray shirt, and posted this photo from the Armoury of a denim shirt under a green tweed jacket. As always, I got plenty of good advice, especially from @patliean1 and @Osiris2012.

    I'm happy to say that I eventually got around to ordering it and I'm now able to share a few photos.

    Can anyone provide advise on cuff pleats? I need more room/range of motion in the forearm and elbow without increasing the elbow width. I know proper cloth offers 3 pleat cuffs but I prefer luxire by a long shot. Any suggestions on how to articulate what I'm looking for to luxire?

    Sounds great. Any plans to tweak to the style configuration settings for pleats, i.e. add an option to set vertical distance from waistband (pleat starting point)? This was considered in winter, as per this post:

    Any update?

    Thank you.

    We believe these will be configuration changes and we should be able to do them after we get the release through.
    Current priority is on making the site live with basic functionality just so that we can focus completely on the new website.

    I got, among other things, my bleeding madras shirt this week (took only 18 days from ordering until delivery, even though the order included trousers and several pattern changes).

    The madras material has a great, vintage feel! But the colors are quite harsh looking pre-bleeding, not something I would have ordered if it was permanent. I have only washed the shirt once, so the bleeding isn't very pronounced yet. Hopefully it will look much better with time.

    As warned here by Luxire, it shrinks during wash. I'd say you should order 0,5 inch larger in chest/waist/bottom to compensate.

    Hopefully this isn't the last bleeding madras fabric Luxire brings forward. Something closer to what Leith offers, would be greatly appreciated.

    Those are the two main things that I would try as well, althought .75 seems a little high for the crotch inseam. But they'd know better than I would.

    I think paxonus is right that the thigh looks a little tight and the length a little short (just 1-2 inches imo), but both are a question of style as much as fit.

    My advice would have been to increase the elbow width. I'd be surprised if there was any other way. If you add a pleat to the cuff you'll either need to decrease the cuff width or increase the width above the cuff, but increasing just the the forearm width doesn't seem like it would help with motion.

    Placed a new order for a field jacket, using my existing pattern from my last order. ETA is a week for completion, which is amazing honestly! Guess it helps when the material is on hand, and the pattern on file.

    Great stuff @luxire, I look forward to it! :fonz:

    So I'm trying to order my first Luxire shirt using the new website. I measured one of my shirts where the chest measurement is 24" and the waist is 22". For some reason, the waist measurement dropdown won't go below 24". Is that common or a glitch?

    Love the hand looming. Agree that more muted colors would be appealing. Hope we see more fabric options.

    Sounds like you've got some eating to do.
