@luxire When do you think it will be possible again to order swatches?
Hopefully soon. The fabric team is now fully staffed. They do have some backlog. Once it clears, we will start fulfilling swatch orders.

The first photo you have posted is of jeans that were originally dyed dark blue and then garment washed / stonewashed to fade them in the factory, much like most Levis or other jeans sold in mainstream outlets. That kind of washing is usually the province of large manufacturers only, although Luxire is able to do some pre-washing. The second photo you have posted looks like actual wear of a pair of darker jeans due to long term use (it is possible that there was some factory fading done, but we would need a closer photo to see). The Luxire photo is of jeans that are uniformly dyed a light colour, which will of course look subtly but unmistakeably different from a dark garment that has faded. What you refer to as the difference in "the edges" is the visual variation that arises from fading due to wear and tear, which is mimicked by the garment washing process.

Many people on this and other forums would blanch at the idea of buying pre-faded jeans and prefer the look that comes with natural fading that reflects your body shape and use. But each to their own and machine-faded jeans like those in the first photo have their own appeal (see "norm-core")
Yes, but you can rarely fade dark denim to that point unless you buy some very rare pair from Japan or something like that. I was just curious how Luxire fading looked because I want light denim but I won't order unless I see some photos.
Bellow you can see a pair I bought 4-5 years ago from Japanese fabric which was almost black at the beginning.

Nice fades. However, I'm not sure I agree: you'd be surprised what can be achieved by putting some fine japanese jeans in the normal washing machine cycle after every wear or two just like you would for your underwear and tshirts for a year. It looks a lot like the first photo. Source: got married, wife would no longer tolerate the "no wash fades" lifestyle.

To denim guys.
Attached below are from the left:
1. Medium solid fading
2. Medium faded with thighs lighter
3. Some strange fading caused by Luxire implementing 2nd pair. In the end agreed to take both and I'm happy overall.

Yep, they are all Luxire cheapest option - Luxire Signature Denim 12oz raw indigo and then faded to my spec.
I also got cheap Off White Bull Denim, but you can see internal pocket structure. But probably because they are tighter on me than in Luxire example picture.

I absolutely recommend Luxire denim. Price/quality is great. Measurements can be used same as for trousers.
Only their raw salvage does not fade much. I think they pre-wash all denims.

Yeah I received mine and looks great although cant comment on how it ages. Don’t know wjere you can get 15 oz denim for 90€. And on top of that it’s custom.

First Luxire order finally arrived and it was...a bit of a fiasco.

I sent them a pair of trousers I wanted replicating, and asked them to do double inverted pleats instead of the single British pleat that was on the reference pair.

They sent me back a pair of trousers with the most hilariously awful interpretation of "double pleat" that I've ever seen. I'm now the proud owner of a pair of trousers with an identity crisis - they have a single pleat that goes in both directions!

^Those are inverted pleats. They were pretty popular in the late 80s/early 90s. I'd wear pants like that. PS calls them "kissing pleats.":

But if you really wanted, I bet they could be altered to have double "reverse" pleats, which I think is what you wanted. If you asked for "inverted" pleats, as you posted here, then that's what you got.

Well fuck me, you learn something new every day. You are correct that "reverse" is indeed what I was going for. I've never seen "inverted"/"kissing" pleats before but I guess I am now the proud owner of a piece of early 90s nostalgia.

Changing that to another type of pleat is easy. But yes, the pants need to travel around the world for the change.
