    I was thinking in terms of sending a sample that you guys have a full lineup of sizes and send them off for users to try on and adjust from there. Unless the jacket is made the same way, especially the shoulders, you can get pretty different results if you take measurements from the customer's existing jacket. The most successful online made to measures send you their trial fits to work from. However, this method may be more difficult and costly if they'd be going back and forth between India and US. Just my 2 cents.

    Is mentioning Finamore collar enough to get this detail in an order. No need to get specific with collar points, height, spread etc?

    So, here are the pictures of the jeans. After wearing them for a full day I noticed that they're around .5" too big in the waist, but that's because I lost some weight after I sent the measurements to Luxire, so that's my own fault. Anyway, it's nothing a tailor can't fix easily. I took a lot of photos, because I figured you guys were interested in seeing all the details.

    Pressed jeans with single pleats... very strange.

    Will be interested in how they age and stretch out mainly. Keep us updated.

    Which denim is that?

    Haha, indeed. Copy of another post: I'm well aware of the fact that it breaks all the rules, but sometimes it's fun to play around with existing concepts and see how far you can go. I had never seen jeans with side adjusters and pleats before, so I was wondering how it would look like. Like I said before, I'm trying to create a sort of dressier kind of jean. Why would you do that, you might ask? Simply because I can, and I'm having a lot of fun doing it! $99 for custom made Japanese selvedge denim is pretty cheap, so I don't mind experimenting a little.

    Anyway, for the people considering Luxire denim, I'm sure they can also make very nice jeans in the standard way, as shown in their own pictures. The fact that they were able to incorporate my odd requests so well only attests to their craftsmanship.

    This is the 14oz dark selvedge denim. I'll keep you posted regarding how they age and stretch.

    Nice details. Seems like a pretty serious taper or a bad camera angle. What's the leg opening measurement?

    The camera certainly exaggerates it, but I believe it was around 7". I think I might go with 7.25"-7.5" next time, but anything more really is too wide for my taste. I prefer my jeans to be slimmer than my dress pants. Besides, I used to wear skinny jeans with leg openings between 5"-6", so I'm used to a more tapered fit, as opposed to straight or bootcut.

    Completely agreed. Sending a sample to the customer and adjusting it collaboratively based on pictures of how it fits is the only way to do it right. Anything else (short of a basted fitting which won't be happening for apparent reasons) simply won't work.

    MonkeyFace, I really liked the side adjusters and the back pockets.

    I think they'd look a lot better if the thigh was slimmer or the leg opening was wider. I would definitely recommend a leg opening of 7.5" or even 8" especially given how big your shoes are. That might also just be the camera angle though. It might make things look more proportional.
