    Just FYI, the blue hounds tooth is much much softer than the end on end. I'd get it. And forgo the swatch.

    Thx. The end-on-end is already quite soft. Will have to wait until Spring...

    Finally got the fit down with only minor alterations from the second pair ordered. Just ordered one pair of trousers in each of Minnis mid-grey flannel, medium grey plain Dugdale Royal Classics and the tan version of the Dugdale Yorkshire Cavalry Twill (went with one of the 15-16 ounce ones, the 20 ounce ones are probably a bit heavy). I'll be excited to see what other medium grey flannel Luxire is able to source. $300 for good MTM flannel trousers is definitely a good deal, but the ability to get a good flannel trouser for less would be excellent.

    Has anyone ordered trousers in Duck-Egg moleskin? Is it sort of olive green?

    Anyone found a good work horse white?

    I'm looking for something that is light to medium weight but has enough stiffness to hold up well under a suit with no tie. If it doesn't wrinkle that easily that's a huge bonus too.

    I got the end on end in this shipment and I questioned if maybe the Chambray was sent instead. It seems darker than yours and it's quite rough. Weird.

    No extra charge.

    Reminds of an old joke when a patient ate coconut skin when advised by doctor to eat fruits with skin.

    In terms of finish, they are a bit less "polished", but they look very good. We do include a few extra buttons, in case a part of it chips/peels off.

    I'm hoping somebody can offer some help as to the below situation. Here are the measurements on some pants I currently have, and I would like to tweak:

    Have:
    Half Waist: 15.25''
    Half Hips (8'' below top of waistband): 19''
    Half Hips Front (8'' below top of waistband): 17.25''
    Pant Length: 39.25''
    Inseam: 30.5''
    Front Rise: 10.25''
    Back Rise: 15''
    Thigh: 11.5''
    Knee (15'' below crotch): 8.5''
    Leg Opening: 8''

    Now here are the changes I would like to make:
    1) Increase front rise by .5''
    2) Increase the overall length of the pants by approximately .25''

    Want:
    Half Waist: 15.25''
    Half Hips (8'' below top of waistband): 19''
    Half Hips Front (8'' below top of waistband): 17.25''
    [COLOR=FF0000]Pant Length: 40.00''
    Inseam: 30.75''
    Front Rise: 10.75''
    Back Rise: 15.5''[/COLOR]
    Thigh: 11.5''
    Knee (15'' below crotch): 8.5''
    Leg Opening: 8''

    Do the measurements above make sense for the changes I would like to make?

    Thanks for the help!!!

    ^^as for your idea to add to the outseam and each rise in equal amounts (minus the extra .25 in of length you want): it seems reasonable, but keep in mind that it is not true that the outseam is the sum of the front rise (much less the back) with the inseam. the lines that make up these measurements aren't perfectly parallel (this is pretty obvious from your measurements). so my guess would be that increasing the front and back rise would increase the total outseam by less, but maybe with changes as small as you are making this is negligible. if you want expert advice on this you can ask in one of the tailor's threads where they might be able to tell you how to achieve what you want. will this be your first pair from luxire? if so, i'd advise sticking with something you know works, or, if you insist on making adjustments, making them as small as possible, and work from there for your next pair. of course, maybe .5 inches is a small adjustment; i don't really know.
