@DFWWingnut ,

What @aj805 is asking/saying is whether or not the rise height reaches your navel. In addition to a wider thigh measurement, a higher rise would help remedy your pleat issues.

If you are happy with your rise height then awesome. However, I think having them reach the "crest" of your stomach, belly button, or even adding 1.5 inches would greatly affect the overall aesthetics of your trousers. Especially if you're going for the Neapolitan style, since fit is just as important as the details.

It's difficult to explain in words but do a google search on Ethan Newton from The Armoury. He has a lot of great photos of himself which might help.

No prob. FWIW I think the pants are completely wearable, and will look just fine with a sportcoat. I think the 80/20 rule applies here...

Hello,

I am just asking myself if some of you have already specified custom collar with one-piece placket / collar / neckband. No doubt about skills and craftsmanship at Luxire but truthfully curious about achieved results.

Best regards,

Interesting. These are pretty high IMHO. How much are you thinking? I know I’ve got a bit of a #dadbod going on.
I'd have to concur that I think these look quite low rise tbh. I'd probably increase the front and back rise with 1 inch or so, possibly a bit more on the front than in the back t make them more level, but that's depending a lot on your build. And also adding the same to the overall width, depending on how aggressive you'd want the tapering. But it's very hard to tell with layman's eyes, Luxire can probably give you better results.

What I will say is that moving into a higher rise feels very strange and very high from the get go, but once you nail it and are used to it, wearing low rise will feel very wrong.

Carbon footprint is a trade off for fit. If you are too concerned, don’t move forward—and maybe get off the net
Thanks for your facetious reply. Or maybe I’ll stump up for a local tailor. In fact , that’s exactly what I’ll do.

I have one of those "turner V3" collars. It's a nice medium spread, with hidden buttons in the collar points. It's not a button down, though

I have not kept up with this thread for a good long while. What is the current favorite white, twill fabric for a decent work shirt?

Got a pair of trousers in this fabric yesterday. Third pair from Luxire and quite happy with my fit.

I dont usually like chino fabric since it feels like cardboard to me, but this is very soft and nice.
Doesnt drape or hold a crease very well because of the softness.


I will probably order more in similair fabrics for everyday wear

I will try to take better pictures later but it is hard since the blue is so dark.royalnavy.jpg

Anyone that has a NOBD collar, is it a curved cutaway collar? It's hard to tell from the website. Any pics would be greatly appreciated as well.
Sorry for the slow response, I could not find any good photos so I had to take a couple of quick shots when wearing the shirts again.

Below is the NOBD-I

And here is the NOBD-II. Taller and less spread but nicer shape imo. I prefer this, but both are very nice and goes well with a suit! I only specify the collar type, no additional adjustments.

Some more pictures of the soft Chino.
To short, but that's easy to fix
They look a lot slimmer in the pictures than they feel...IMG_20191004_155636340_HDR~2.jpgIMG_20191004_155743509_HDR~2.jpg
