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.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?
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?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?
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.What is back panel slope, and when is adjustment made to this?
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.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?
Not entirely sure I understand, but this my latest iteration from Luxire:As I understand it, it is to adjust the slope at the back only.

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.Not entirely sure I understand, but this my latest iteration from Luxire:
View attachment 1106945View attachment 1106946View attachment 1106947
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"
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?
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.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:
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 openI 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!
