Didn't know that.
Thanks for clarifying
Here's an unfused shirt cuff (from an old Hilditch & Key-shirt):
The white lining is sewn but not glued to the fabric. You can feel three layers.
Thinking about getting some denim made in the same (updated) confuguration of my copper chinos.
With configuration you mean measurements or the design of the pant?
If you mean the later, I would advise you not to do it.
I can't bring myself to liking denim made pants other than traditional jeans.
I meant the latter.
Maybe I would not have them pleated, but with a nice high rise, creased and cuffed.
Do it! High rise jeans are awesome! I brought my Luxire jeans to the tailor for some adjustments (slim down the thighs and waist) the other day, and he was impressed with the quality and construction, especially when I told him how much I paid for them.
I'll definitely order a second pair from Luxire. I'd probably use a similar configuration as my first pair (high rise, single, small pleats, neat seams, side adjusters), except I'll make them a little wider in the leg leg opening and a little longer so I can cuff them, which would make them drape better.
Yep, I really like how your jeans turned out (except for the lower leg being a bit slim). You kin of gave me the idea ;-) Which denim did you choose?
Yep, but my tailor said he'll probably be able to fix that, so I'm eagerly awaiting the day I can pick them up! I went for the 14oz dark selvedge denim. If it's still on sale I would definitely go for that if you're looking for a darker pair of trousers.

Also put in an order for a pair of pants.

And asked for side adjusters like the ones that Epaulet has: http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0184/4436/products/Walt_Grey_Merino_Side_Tab_1024x1024.jpg?9631
Uh-oh. Me too. Let's see who wins here. I'm not ordering mine until my pants come in next week.
ordered the sky blue linen/cotton and waiting on some pants
changed the shirt measurements a bunch, will see how i like it.
I'm waiting until I get the pair of navy linen pants I special ordered from Epaulet a few weeks ago. Once I get those and then get them tailored, I'll use the measurements to get the brown linen Luxire pants made.
Took 2 shirts a month to be shipped, suffice to say that the waiting time was shit but seeing as I was in no rush for my shirts I can't really complain as the fit is spot on and improved slightly from older order.
