@ppk THank you for posting those shots. Looks like pretty standard (decent) cotton drape. I got a more standard waistband for this test pair, but it's good to know what the full monte would look like were I to go with the recent trend of high waist / pleats / multi-button extended closure.

Regarding jeans, I see some jeans offering is "designed by Hiroshi Kato".
Can you elaborate on this? I have jeans from Kato. Do they use the same fabric or have the same cut?
Just the fabric. They do not have the same cut. The cut is Luxire standard.

I'd love to see some silk shirts. Either prints or something textured like jacquard. Wolf vs Goat has been doing this recently and I like the fabrics they've offered. But the quantities are too limited and I'd prefer to use my size/style preferences from Luxire.

We do intend to add some rayon/viscose prints this season.No plan on adding silk though.

You can send us an email about the kind of shirts you would like, we will see what we can source for you.

Neat interview with Luxire on the site -- https://www.styleforum.net/ams/behi...costumes-for-the-new-look-on-apple-tv.126719/ -- about their role with the First Look (that Luxire team referenced before).
I'm curious, was there any particular mill(s) that you guys worked with for the fabrics? This safari-esque jacket and this other one caught my eye.

Would someone kindly explain to me what causes this common issue of upper back bunching up just behind the collar?

I get this with a lot of my shirts and full-sleeve polos and would like to understand the possible culprits and how to fix this problem.

Classic collar roll........I can share what my tailor told me since I have the exact same problem on all of my off the rack sport coats and Shirts. He said it's because I have square shoulders and good posture.

I have my fit dialed in with luxire Etc and you should be able to make it happen for yourself as well with no issues.

I imagine sending them a picture of what is going on will take care of it. I believe they simply .Trim the yoke around the collar. But that's just my guess. I'm sure you won't have any problems getting it fixed.

Thanks for the input. Will work on it.

Just trying to better understand what causes this to happen at a mechanical level and what the natural fix for it would be.

I have a question that hopefully the hive mind can help me out with.
If you look just behind the pockets, diagonally leading to the side-adjusts, you'll see some diagonal wrinkling there between the back pockets and the waist band. I have this issue on almost all my trousers, regardless of maker.

I cannot seem to nail down why it occurs and how to resolve it. Occurs with my high-rise cotton pants as well. Any insights?

Likewise, there's also some wrinkling that occurs with the front pockets, just between the pocket and the pleat. Another common issue I cannot figure out how to address.

@hysteria,

What style waist band is that on your grey trousers?

The issue occurs where is not enough room for the shoulder bone. We add room to the circled region to solve the issue.
It is the shoulder that is pulling the shirt forward, causing the folds.
