Is this the flat 30%? Because for Switzerland, that would indeed mean it's way too high. It's only 7.7% VAT, no duty or anything. To the best of my knowledge, most of the carriers allow you to properly tax per jurisdiction. Is this not available from DHL, would be surprised to be honest?


In any case, I am flabbergasted at the amount of people being annoyed that tax & duty evasion no longer works and blaming it on Luxire. Are people for real?
There will not be anything "flat". We will be using a system that will correctly calculate the taxes and duties.

I have a question about Luxire's size measurements.
The usual process goes like this:
1. When ordering, customers provide a photo of their bodies, or input measurements
2. Some back and forth emails occur, counseling about the size measurements
3. Luxire gives email saying 'this is the final measurements, can we proceed with this?'
My question is this:
Are only the final measurements' numbers informed to the tailor?
So, are the final measurements' numbers all that matter after all?
For example, let's say I gave Luxire my body image. And after 2 and 3 (mentioned above), Luxire gives their tailor only the final measurements numbers, not my body images? Because my body image is already considered into the final measurements?

In other words, situation 1 or situation 2?
(Of course pleats style, pocket style, cuff style, or something like that would be informed to tailor, but what I'm focusing on is just size-wise)

The reason I'm asking this question is this:
I'm considering placing new orders, but I'm wondering it would be sufficient to give them (Luxire) the last order's final measurements with small number adjustment this time.
Or should I give them a kind of context about how I and Luxire reached (concluded) the last time's final measurement?

Could anyone kindly give me an image of "NEAPOLITAN SIDE METAL ADJUSTER ON WAIST SEAM WAISTBAND"?
It is one option in Luxire, but I can't find any information about that. From what I see on the Luxire's site, I can't tell the difference between it and "SIDE METAL ADJUSTERS ON WAIST SEAM".

Thanks for your reply.
I know the difference between ON WAIST SEAM (4th option in the attached picture) and ON WAIST BAND (7th option).
What I'd like to know is what "NEAPOLITAN side adjuster (8th option)" is.
Here’s photos of the Neapolitan side adjusters. Other than aesthetics, I don’t notice much of a difference in functionality.

Luxire is the tailor. That is, you're sending your order to the people who cut the patterns and make the clothes. In my experience it's absolutely fine just to send order number + small adjustments.

Of course you're right that Luxire consists of tailors (and other staffs). What I mean is that when the tailor starts to cut and make the clothes, whether the tailor considers only the final measurements' numbers, or others. Because they can't manually remember all the conversations with so many customers. In other words, 1. when starting to cut and make, the tailor only considers the final measurements' number because it already represents all other factors, 2. when starting to cut and make, there are customer's body images or other size considerations besides the final measurements' number in front of the tailor's eyes, and the tailor considers all of them while cutting. 1? 2?

You can send in pants to have measurements and dimensions copied if you have some that fit well. I have done this and it turned out very well. May be a good option for you. To answer your question though, I highly doubt the person cutting fabric is thinking of my body while doing it.

I would think by definition if it's going into a pattern then it's a measurement of some kind, so I'm not sure your options quite fit, but I think 2 is closer. But I'm not a tailor and I've never drafted a pattern, so I think it's best not to worry about that kind of thing personally.

You can always send extra photos etc with your adjustments, or if you have a long discussion by email you can ask for the email no. from Luxire and then add to the custom notes "please adjust as discussed in email xxxxxx" etc.

Haha, I was thinking the same reading this. I've ordered from Luxire around 10 times and never had the VAT added (EU shipments) and I knew for sure it was not the correct way.

I’m pretty sure they make a pattern (electronic or paper) for your original order. For subsequent orders, you just reference your original order number and you specify any changes you want to the pattern. If they are minor (e.g. sleeve length) then it’s easy to write that into the order notes. If they are more complicated then send an email with photos and/or drawings.

this is also why most people recommend that you send in a garment that fits you well for your first order, if you have one. translating measurements into a pattern is an imperfect process.
