    Yes I‘d say slim suit pants en vogue..

    I‘d really like the same fit with a higher rise. I’m not really experienced in what I could say to Luxire. I‘d say my pants are comparable to a suitsupply fit of pants.

    Thanks for the help

    Don't get me wrong, I'm hardly an expert, I'm just basing this on my own experiences with having higher rises, it has meant re-making the pattern of the trouser throughout. I'd say the easiest way to get firm answers would be to email Luxire and ask them. Sending them picture of the trousers you're wearing, as well as including the pictures you did above of what you're looking for. They might say, no problem and make you a pair based on measurements, they might prefer you to send the trousers in.
    In my experience, they're always forthcoming and do whatever they can to assist.

    @StartingStyle - this! I'd start from scratch, order from Luxire using pictures (of the trousers you like, and of what you have) and measurements and start with a low cost fabric. Be prepared that your first result will be unwearable (though you might be pleasantly surprised) and then use photos of you wearing them and let Luxire guide you through recommended modifications. This way your second and subsequent pairs should be largely spot on.

    I've been considering making the switch from belt-loops to side-adjusters for some time. There are three reasons why I have not done so: 1. my general lack of courage, 2. I do enjoy some of my belts, and 3. concern that the side adjusters will loosen and require frequent re-adjusting during the day.

    Let’s not belabor point 1. ;) Instead, can you comment on point 3 above with regard to the luxire adjusters? Also, if this is an issue, might this suggest that the fit of the trousers is "off" rather than a problem with the hardware itself and, as such, one might not want to go with side adjusters until the fit is perfect (mine is nearly there)?

    Sometimes, I really don't understand @luxire

    I've ordered two pairs of pants. One of the fabrics is out of stock, no big deal (even if I had to ask them 6 weeks after order to know that there were an issue. Come on, 6 weeks to figure out if a fabric is in stock?). So I choose another fabric, it's great, love the pants, and good news, it's cheaper than the first fabric I wanted. Luxire was then supposed to give me a gift card for the price difference between the two fabrics.

    This was more than three weeks ago.

    What I really don't understand is that, they should know that I'm not going to order a new pair until I have this "gift card". Right? It should be logic? Because on the other hand, I want to order. Or at least, I wanted. Three weeks ago.

    I suspect they lost lots of staff. Communication has taken a nosedive.

    The adjusters are mostly aesthetic. I don't think they actually serve a function as the pants are made to measure and, as such, fit perfectly.

    YMMV.

    Side adjusters are more traditional on suit trousers, for casual trousers they're more of an acquired taste (though one I happen to like.)

    Ditto. I have had one pair that loosen (not Luxire) but because the waist was too loose. If you are only tightening 1-2cm they should be fine.
    It's nice to have a bit of leeway if your weight fluctuates at all over the year (or evening...)

    A thought that came to mind last night with regards to Luxire's bespoke shoe offering: seeing as how we can send in garments for replication, can we also do the same with a pair of say, Carminas, along with a pair of lasted shoe trees?

    Or better yet, a plaster cast of our feet.

    A few months back I had posted a photo of my Suit fit from the Luxire NYC Trunk Show (I probably should have held off until the next round of alterations were complete) and mailed it back for some tuning.

    It took a little while to get back, but issues were corrected on the fit of the jacket. Pants are a little more of a work in progress (and not pictured here), but I have an additional pair ordered in this fabric as well.

    Between the Trunk Show in October and “e-spoke” fittings, I stopped eating like shit and lost 20 lbs which affected the initial fit, moreso with the pants.

    Excuse the “deer in headlights look”. 2161BF6B-EAB5-4FFB-BFAE-C168D768D829.png

    Appreciate any feedback on the jacket.

    Other details on jacket

    Looks very good. Finally some positive in this thread aha. Maybe take up the waist in slightly?

    That jacket looks excellent, @Megakurth. I have a few Luxire jackets that I really enjoy.

    Imo you can trust the Luxire instructions for measuring your feet. I tried it and the shoes fit perfectly. The shoemaker is a real master at fit and construction.

    I think the industry consensus is that plaster casts don't work. DWFII has posted about it here and probably on his own website, theHCC.org.
