    Full disclosure for clarification: I ordered pants (1st ever order) 7 weeks ago, but about 4 weeks after placing that order I ordered one of their test shirts, so I think part of my delay is due to the pants waiting on the shirt. So I'm not sure it's fair to say it's quite that long. I also got the impression that one's first order takes longer than subsequent ones because they have to make a pattern, whereas later orders may take less if all they do is tweak the existing pattern. I could be just making this up too.

    This is my 2nd order, but this is the first time I'm trying the trousers. My first order was just a shirt. I agree that the customer service is great, I just wish the order would have shipped by now. Hopefully my next order will be much faster.

    Yeah, I ordered some shirts 3 weeks ago, and I wanted to try the linens, but I want to wait to get the first order to check for fit, so I'm just waiting, no shipping notification yet.

    Very neat. I share your preference for things lining up. For example, I too prefer that the waist tab extends to the crease/pleat. But I wouldn't have the side adjusters located where you have them. That's too long and too rearward imo. If you wanted the tabs to line up with other things, I'd leave the forward ones where you have them (above the pocket, but have the rear ones line up with the rear pocket's buttons and the little seam rising from pocket to waistband. That would have the problem (prob. very small) of putting more stress on that seam though. Even so, I think the usual way is best. This way makes them more rear adjusters than side adjusters and I'm not sure what, um, side-effects that might have.

    Fair observations. Funnily enough, I actually had side adjusters made like you describe on my previous order. While I like that positioning fine, and it's somewhat more conventional, I decided to simply extend them round the back. It's not that I've moved them, I've made them that much longer, so they will tighten in exactly the same place as my previous order, and as adjusters normally do, which is on the sides of the hips. It's also worth noting I have a 30" waist, so the extension of straps and things is much less consequential than on a larger waist.

    I used quite a few reference images for the design, the main two of which are these Anderson & Sheppard trousers and, most relevant, Simon Crompton in Gieves & Hawkes:

    The bottom picture is almost identical to my design, and notice how the buckle is positioned even further back than I place it, making them more rearward than mine. I can't see it being a problem, quite honestly. It's no different in principal to the function of a belt.

    Some pictures of my Luxire selvedge jeans in 13 oz dark raw.

    What do you think of the fit of the jeans? I think they look quite good, but will increase length a bit. (couple cm's)

    Other than the issues with fit, I'm very happy with the resultat and the selvedge is great quality and still available for a mere 99$.

    Fair enough, this is CM and not SW&D, so I understand that, but thanks!

    I mostly wear raw-denim and chinos, so my style is quite casual.

    Just thinking of getting two pairs of selvedge jeans by Luxire and then moving on to other types of trousers, like moleskin/corduroy.

    Why would you need two pairs of the same fabrics, or are you getting another fabric? Those you posted look good on you.

    For the Luxire Selvedge they offer it in three different styles: 14 oz dark indigo, 13 oz dark indigo and 13 oz raw indigo. I have the raw indigo one and I'm thinking of the 14 oz dark indigo.

    Looking forward to my next shirt arriving from Luxire. No rush with it, though. Using body measurements this time.

    Very interesting. Thanks. I hadn't seen those pics and it looks good there. I couldn't imagine it being good, but seeing is believing.

    Did you use shirt measurements the first time? If so, why would you switch to body measurements for your next shirt instead of just making adjustments to the first shirt? Were you looking for an entirely different pattern for this shirt?

    I am very interested due to the pricing and judging from the pics, the finished products look pretty decent. However, I am not too sure about the fabrics used. I thought it was just for the cheaper shirts but even the $600 one is unclear. Others may call me a sucker for labels but it gives me some assurance to know which brand's mill the fabric is from and if possible the series too. I think most people would appreciate some transparency.

    Nevertheless, I might go ahead with a cheaper test shirt soon.

    You are a sucker for labels.

    The quality of Luxire's fabric is quite high. Those labels have huge markups.

    Additionaly, I believe they have said they are able to make shirts from many of the major mills if you specify fabric.

    Fit looks very good as well as the color. Did you send them an example to follow for measurements or did you give them measurements?

    I've gone with mostly the cheaper end of their materials while dialing in measurements. That said, I've been very surprised at the quality of the materials for the price. Nothing has felt "cheap". I'll likely be ordering the higher end stuff soon like Dugdale and minnis.

    Regarding Dugdale, I have several suits from Charles Tyrwhitt and I'm convinced that it's Dugdale material they use...some of the patterns are identical what's in my closet. It's very good stuff based on my experience...not cheap at all...just that the CT suits are not bespoke and don't fit nearly as well as a pair of Luxire made trousers.

    Isn't 9oz awfully light for flannel? The color looks good, but I fear the cloth would be too delicate.

    STILL haven't gotten around to taking good pictures as I've worked every day straight since I got my Luxire delivery, but I wanted to say if anyone was on the fence about the Luxire Off-White Linen Pants, get them. They're incredibly soft, even better than the Luxire Brown. And a better price. They're not really too see-thru either. Sure you can see the pocket lining and some people don't like it. I take that as a sign of something casual, which these pants are. Even with 2" cuffs, these guys are versatile as hell.

    I've since pressed mine and have worn them on two dates. Gotten compliments both times (and second/third dates). They work as well with sandals as they do with loafers. I almost want to get another pair. Just because.
