I've never had a pair of trousers w/o belt loops, and using a side adjuster instead.

What are some things I need to consider, if I've already got a reliable fit/pattern with Luxire? Do I just make the swap, or should I think about adding a pleat or making it higher rise or something?

Also, is there some kind of overview explaining what lined/unlined or fused/unfused collars are - and what the pros/cons may be? What is the luxire standard for this?
The biggest consideration is fit. I've been ordering my trousers without belt loops for years now, but I also have a frame (ie: hips and a rump) that allow side adjusters to sit very well on my waist.

Almost all seersucker on the website are summer weight. The Canclini ones are super light.

Guys, we're you able to order casual chinos from Luxire? By casual I mean, no cuff, crease or pleats.
I have pretty descent pants and jeans pattern with Luxire. Wondering which one would make sense to copy?

Of all luxire shirt fabrics I've purchased, I like the University Blue Oxford & Vista Blue Stripes the most.

Any personal recommendations for comparable fabrics to those?
Also, what's the best indicator is a fabric will wrinkle? Weight only? I have a couple shirts that are 126-128g/4oz and they seem to do okay. I'm looking at one that is 115g/4oz and think it might be too thin and will wrinkle easily?

As I understand it, it is to adjust the slope at the back only. I request it because I have forward shoulders which often leaves a hollow area behind each shoulder. I don’t need more shoulder slope but I do need the back panel to be ‘lifted’ behind each shoulder to avoid creasing in this area. Imagine pinning up the back just below the yoke seam at each side.

Not being obtuse, but if you want them to be cut like jeans then use the jeans pattern, otherwise use the trouser pattern and ask for 'no cuff, crease or pleats', that sounds fine.

Also bear in mind that a jeans pattern probably demands heavier, coarser cloth to look right vs. Ambrosi style cotton trousers.

Not entirely sure I understand, but this my latest iteration from Luxire:

IMG_3815.jpgIMG_3816.jpgIMG_3817.PNG

Luxire recommended:

For pants:
Hip: Increase by 3/8”
Thigh: increase by 1/4"
Inseam: decrease by 5/8" at the crotch.
Back rise: increase at the crotch by 1/2"

For shirt:
Cuff: decrease by 1/4”
Bicep: decrease by 1/4"
Back panel slope: increase by 1/4”

I think I agree with the pant suggestions, scooping the bottom is probably the best way to ease some of the horizontal wrinkling under the butt. I feel like the length of the trousers at the back is maybe a touch short?

I’m not sure I agree with the shirt recommendations, the cuffs feel pretty good, not sure I want to take them in anymore. Bicep reduction may be a good idea.

I think I have a bit too much fabric around the waist, and I already added darts in this iteration, but I don’t want it to be too tight - I'm assuming this may be relieved by the Back Panel Slope?

Don’t take my word for it, but I think the small increase in back panel slope is intended to help remove the bit of excess fabric you can see bunching up at the back of each armhole.

To those who have ordered popover shirts based on a regular shirt pattern -
If I can put on/take off the regular shirt with the buttons done up (excluding top 3, of course), is there any need to change any measurements?

Secondly, does anyone have any experience with:
https://mtm.luxire.com/products/indigo-sartorial-denim?variant=7546378059831#/
I have two cotton pique in different weight and both have way too long sleeves. I'd say 1 inch too long. Rest is fine. Copied dress shirt.
This is not an advice!

I have same issue. Made note to shorten sleeve by 1" next order. Also have had to have all button holes stitched smaller as buttons kept popping open
