    Those are the "DAKS-side-adjusters".
    I also specified a long waistband (saw it on the pics of Ambrosi-pents). My pants also feature the "buttoned 2"-cuff" and single pleats.

    Order # is 3047. Just tell Luxire to leave away the left belt-loop.


    I am wearing my pants today. The feel & fit is great. Very, very pleased so far!
    Next order (which will be soon (like today hahaha)), I will raise front and back-rise around 0.5" and make the waist tighter 0.5".

    So it will only be one belt loop? Not sure if I'm a fan of the asymmetry. Do you got the pic of the Ambrosis?

    Luxire Vs. Ambrosi - Fabric, stitching, fit, details - all look comparable. That too at a fraction of cost and a fraction of wait time.

    It seems the pants are now maturing pretty fast.

    And that's the crux of all the problems of people wearing tacky clothing these days. Everyone thinks they know the rules and dress well and can get away with breaking some of them for what they'll call "sprezz."

    Regarding the DAKS waistband, if I were to adjust the elastic waistband, does the fabric scrunch up like a pair of pajamas? Or is that not how it works?

    I just made the adjustments in my spreadsheet for pants V2.
    The basic style will remain the same, also most of the measurements.
    I will raise front and back-rise by around 0.75 / 1.0 inches, this also affects the length in the same dimension. Also, I will have made the waistband 0.5 inches tighter.

    I will also tell Luxire to spare the left button-loop & make the right one a bit broader (around 0.75 inch broad).

    Boring, as I am, I will again order two basic Chinos

    Would like to know this as well, as I have no experience with a daks waistband; is it truly elastic?

    Yep, everyone thinks they know it, but I actually know it. Big difference.

    I liked the pleated jeans that were posted here. Maybe will do the same soon.

    Timo, how did you do the measurements? Did you send them a pair of pents to copy, or did you just send them measurements off an existing pair?

    I took several existing pairs, took their measurement and did an Excel-Spreadsheet. Then, I optimized some measurements (i. e. higher waist etc).
    I sent Luxire several photos & they did a perfect job doing everything I want (except for the useless left belt-loop, but that was also partly my fault).
    Measurements worked out really good for the first try, I would recommend the spreadsheet-method for everybody.

    Did this suit arrive? If so, could you please provide some thoughts on how it turned out?

    Definitely agreed on this - I took measurements from a pair of pants I already have and adjusted them a bit, and my pants came out really well. I don't see myself buying too many pairs of pants from anyone else in the future. Now, if only we could see some examples of suits / sportcoats, I may say the same for those as well!
