@luxire How is the production of jeans coming along?

Still haven´t received my pre-lockdown jeans order (two new pairs to be copied from a sent in pair), so I wonder if it's bad luck on my part or if you're have some specific problems with the production line for jeans.

On the positive side Luxire split the original order and sent the two pairs of wool trousers ordered at the same time when they were ready back in july, even though I had payed for only one shipping.

I would suggest that you send us an email. Most orders from Jan-May are shipped. Most remain for reasons like "awaiting info", "awaiting sample" etc. Remaining are in production. Being actively tracked now for early closure.

I have the same problem with a similar color (Apple fresco cotton) indeed caused by bleach. Would it be possible to re-dye them?
We can try doing so, with a darker color.
Not a standard service we provide, but, something we do have access to.
With reference to this thread I went ahead and bought some dye at the hardware store and dyed my trousers. No trace of the bleached stain remains. Again, I allowed a stain remover meant for whites to sit on those trousers for far too long so your mileage may vary depending on the agent used. I'd imagine Luxire has access to better quality dyes so I see no reason for it not to work when going through them.

So I received my pair of fit trial pants a couple days ago, and although its not terrible, there are a few problems.
First, the back crotch seam is too tight in my seat, resulting in the "wedgie" effect that others on here also seem to have a problem with when ordering pants from Luxire. The pants are also constraining in the crotch when I sit down.
Second, although my hip and thighs are average, the pants seem to fit too tight in this area as well. Especially given the fact that the pocket slits are cut rather small, this makes the pants feel constraining when sitting or using the pockets.
Third, the pleats open up and do not look very pronounced. In fact for a pleated pair of pants, the fronts look quite flat. I guess this is related to the fact that the hip area is a bit tight.
I find these issues a little strange because I ordered the pants with a standard "regular fit" based on my waist and inseam measurements. Most rtw pants have a better fit so it kind of defeats the purpose of mtm.

Any suggestions on how to solve these issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

in my experience highlighting these issues to luxire and asking them to make appropriate changes for your next order is the best way to go. MTM and even bespoke are an iterative process, which is why luxire recommends the relatively inexpensive trial garments for your first ordsr

@luxire

Would you be able to make a 'fun shirt' like the below examples by Drake's and Ralph Lauren? In other words, do you have the same oxford fabric in multiple colors?
The "traditional" way to make a "fun shirt" is to use off-cuts from other jobs to save cloth and train tailors. It might be interesting to offer this as a service (eg. you can select all blue and white patterns, or all pastels, but the actual design is unique and uses whatever cloth is available.)

Oh awesome, I did not know that was the origin of the fun shirt. Agreed it would be even cooler if this served an actual purpose of reducing waste at Luxire.

It is a good idea.

Yeah, I also sent them an e-mail after posting. I just wanted to see what other users have tried to do to resolve the fit issues, and whether it works out well.
