    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.

    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!

    Has anyone else seen a much larger wait time in getting responses from Luxire Customer Service recently? I have either not gotten responses or they have been taking 4 - 5 days to get back to me.

    I just ping them back again in a day or two if I haven't heard a response. They're busy and I read somewhere they had email server issues.

    I asked them about some items I sent in to get fixed from my bad measurements. They didn't respond for a day or so and I just forwarded it back again and they got back to me within 10 minutes.

    Aaaahhhh!!! I didn't get my measurements right on the first pair so I had to send them in a few weeks ago. I'm dying to try them again. I want to order more from Luxire but I need to make sure my size is right. I've got some shirt orders to make but I wish they had more options for casual shirt patterns.

    Awesome, thanks. Just might give this a try.

    How long did it take you to receive them?

    They look great, btw.
