@luxire Can you offer Brass Side Adjuster buckles instead of your regular ones? No offense but the current buckles have a cheap look to it despite being a well made pants by your team

Does anyone happen to have Luxire's Heavy Linen Ecru Hopsack and W Bill's Linen? The ecru hopsack is 390 gsm while W Bill is 380 gsm, however, Luxire's fabric looks on the photos significantly heaver and thicker.

Our adjusters are made of brass and then chrome plated.

I agree with the poster of this question. I am not sure what they are made of currently, but I would pay extra for better side adjusters, i.e, the ones used by higher-end and custom trouser-makers.

There are lovely! Are these as scratchy as the Minnis Fresco?
Less scratchy than the 10 oz, 2-ply fresco, but maybe a tiny bit more than the 8-9 oz high twist fresco. If you have any exp. with Smiths finmeresco, the 4 ply VBC seems like the exact same fabric.

Will share some comparisons. My guess is that our's is much heavier, 390 GSM or 585 GLM, while the W Bill is 380 GLM.

Please share images of the metal adjusters that are impressing you guys.

Just want to be sure if it is a momentary distraction fad or something worth exploring.

I used to order shirts from Propercloth. They have an option for the shoulder slope and neck posture. Do you guys know what this option translates to for Luxire?

This is what I usually select:

Shoulder Slope: Square Shoulders
Posture: Neck Back 1/2"

Just send us an email with your image taken from the front and back, having the camera at shoulder height. we use digital tools to measure the slope and make any required adjustments.

The posture adjustment is made based on review of the shirt fit, after the first shirt is worn.

But, in the last 10 years of making shirts, we have learnt that the shoulder slope is an unimportant measurement for most body types, except the extremes.

We drafted our own technique to make the shirts fit better and remove the issues that people associate with shoulder slope. We incorporated them into our standard shirt pattern and the results have been a good validation of the technique.

Great! What should I wear in the photos?

I'm looking for jeans with some stretch and a light blue wash. I didn't find anything on your site, but is that something you offer?

Luxire end-on-end shirt and VBC Prunnelle twill light grey trousers. I love these trousers. The drape is great and they breath fairly well. Would highly recommend the Prunnelle trousers. I've scooped up all the grey shades with this model.

Love the shirt height and roll. Which collar is this and what are your measurements on the collar such as height / collar style and such? Thank you! :)
