    Thanks.

    I took pretty long, I ordered April, 7th and received the pants yesterday. But the quality is so outstanding, I don't mind the waiting time.

    Why do you give a shit what other people choose to spend their own money on and wear?

    Pretentious. Now moving on. I"m going to send in a shirt for Luxire to copy with some slight adjustments. I can't wait

    I think Luxire needs more fabric options, a TON of blue. Also more pics on how it looks on the mannequin would be great:slayer:

    @Timo: What is the measurement you asked for leg opening?

    I'm just going to wait for my tailor to bring the chinos I bought to get the measurements from those and then try with some pants. [​IMG]

    I need more big pattern options. Blue is alright but eventually I need to get patterns that aren't blue for casual wear, right? lol. I mean the go-to shirt is blue-gingham and I want the linen-cotton blend too but what else?

    Yes there's elastic but it's hidden in the waistband so there is not a scrunching that occurs. the only place where someone would notice something is right at the sides where the buttons are for the elastic band and it's a pretty small % of the total waistbank real estate so to speak.

    Thanks! Is it adviseable to size half a inch down to tighten the elastics?

    I am pretty set on standard OTR khaki pants, but am toying with the idea of having Luxire make a pair or two of GTH pants for summer.

    Has anyone done any interesting trouser concoctions? Have people had success sending cloth for Luxire to do CMT? If so, from where have you sourced the stuff? I'm trying to find something crazy and patterned but that would work for something like a summer beach party.

    The excel spreadsheet method is the one I've espousing for both pants and shirts after I used it for my first pair of pants. It works...period. It is an investment in time upfront though so be forewarned. Once dialed in, it's great and increases confidence in ordering more expensive trousers.

    I'm not sure I like the area marked in the pictures above. While Ambrosi pants look natural the Luxire one doesn't. The arrows show, in my opinion, that there is too much fabric used to create the pleats. In this way, a rather flat rectangle (square) is created. Can anyone see it too? Other details are as always perfect but I'm not sure about this pleats. I wouldn't like every pair of single pleat pants to have the same look in this area. I suppose it was created because of the belt loops being placed in the same place as the pleat.
    Nobody mentioned it before so maybe it's just me
