Seems crazy to send a pair of trousers around the world on so many levels, especially carbon footprint.

Is there no other way to do it? I am happy with RTW tbh, as long as the price and quality are good. Maybe this isn’t for me.

prolly not for you then

and re carbon footprint,... its not like your garment is on a plane by itself in first class..

Carbon footprint is a trade off for fit. If you are too concerned, don’t move forward—and maybe get off the net

I just got my trial pants in the mail today. I was starting with a new pattern so that I could replicate a higher waisted style trouser. They seem really billowy in the thigh but drape pretty nicely. Any suggestions for improvement(s)?

Try pressing and doing another fit pic series. I had similar issues with trousers from Luxire (pleat opening), and a good pressing helped immensely.

A higher rise would also be helpful for your build.

Question guys! Does luxire still do second trial trousers half price? First trousers I got was kind of unwearable and completely different from trouser pictures with measurements I sent... Now we are having disagreement about what alterations to make for second trial trousers and they have been avoiding answering the question regards and article on their site regards fit warranty for new customers... (Second trial trousers half price and if im still unhappy, I send both pairs back and get my money returned)....

You mean sleeve pitch? Google, and you'll find a ton of good guides. Or if you mean shoulder slope, google will do a good job for that as well.

@DFWWingnut, If you are liking this lower rise style where the waistband sits below your navel and the top of your hips, then I would drop the pleats and then you can take in the thighs a bit to remove the bagginess.

Pleats really are for trousers that sit on top your hips and allow the pant volume to grow as they move downward over the hips and thigh for a full drapey cut. That doesn't seem to be what you're going for, and they're throwing off the balance here. The pleats won't stay closed because there will never be enough volume below them due to where they sit on your frame.

The dress jeans were a lower rise, non pleated, designed to sit at the hips. I was going for something a bit more Neapolitan here.
