    This is great -It'd be even better if you could include what fabric the item is made from in the tumblr posts.

    A couple of unsolicited tips to take or leave as you prefer:

    - photograph items on a tailor's dummy/form rather than a mannequin. Mannequins can look a bit weird in photos (they make more sense in retail environments).
    - add in a description of the design & fabric (maybe even link to them), to encourage people to click through to your website and order similar things.
    - I don't use tumblr, but there must be a way to add a permanent link somewhere in the page design to explain who you are and/or link to your retail site.
    - a lighter background colour (maybe even white) would probably look nicer.

    Good luck with it! [​IMG]

    Oh okay thanks for the tip. I have a nice custom pair from Proper Suit that are fairly high-waisted, so i'm thinking I will take some pictures of those, take measurements, and email Luxire to see if they can help me come up with the right measurements to make them slightly higher. I was prepared to have my first order be sort of a trial that would require serious adjustments, but both yours and clapeyron's look pretty spot on the first time.
    clapeyron, those also look great. What do you call that waistband style?

    Ok then how does one go about describing the hidden button down collar? Will that work or do I need to attach pics of it?

    Thank you all for the follows and advise to our Tumblr..
    Good suggestion. Yes, will be adding those. Was looking for an easy technical solution. Found one for images and now testing another for text.
    -Agree on tailor's dummy. Coming soon.

    -Description and links will be added

    -Will improve the look in the near future. Testing some more skins to see what works best.

    Aglose- Pics would probably be better; but you should chat with Luxire through email so nothing gets missed; good luck :)

    I could swear someone posted a picture of a darker brown pant made from a fabric not on the website.

    I'm looking for something nearly, but not quite chocolate, that is a lightweight fabric, but not linen.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Luxire, do you offer custom scarves like you do with your pocket squares, e.g., send you a photo of a scarf and see how closely you can recreate the pattern/color?

    Absolutely. We can offer these in silk, wool, silk-wool blends, cotton and some of the synthetic blends too, if desired.

    Can be made of the desired size.

    The print will be replicated closely, as long as the image is 300 PPI.

    So how do I go about getting a pair of cargo pants made? I'm not seeing a cargo pockets option?
