Thanks fellas. I’ll keep iterating.@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.
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.Interesting. These are pretty high IMHO. How much are you thinking? I know I’ve got a bit of a #dadbod going on.
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, thoughHello,
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.
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.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.

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.
