    I submitted my order immediately after luxire posted their holidays were over and would be turning orders around quickly. So I am not surprised, but I am pleased.

    No CAD files saved. Paper patterns are saved with your name and order details written on them. Most Patterns are made by hand and only a few are made using CAD software.

    Luxire, if you are partly using CAD to create patterns, would you be able to work with templates like the following one which clapeyron created?

    Any reason why this cannot be followed with paper pattern making?

    I'd love to have the ability of selecting a pre-existing and confirmed well fitting pattern via a drop down menu when selecting fabrics. For instance I think I have my casual chino pattern nailed down and am currently working with you on the pattern for dress slacks and shirts. It would be great if I could select the basic measurements or maybe even the style of the trousers or shirts this way since I think many of us will reorder the same product in a different variation.

    Example: I am ordering a dugdale flannel and I want it to fit like a previously ordered flannel trouser, I simply click "dress slacks" and add the changes to the requirements box.

    Essentially I'd like to have a way of organising my patterns virtually. Not necessarily as visible patterns but in a way that I could select an ordered item and set it as 'keep measurements pattern under "chino - casual" or "shirt-business"'. For now I handle this by strenuously typing everything out "use measurement from order #4400 and add cuffs etc." which I assume not only takes quite some time for me but also the guy that has to make sense of my gibberish and translate it.


    I really enjoy seeing how much your operation has improved and I am looking forward to the changes you have planned for 2014.

    Not at all, tailors just like engineers have created paper based sketches since decades, right?
    My question was aiming at the fact that from my experience a lot of people are not familiar with and thus unable to properly read CAD sketches.
    From your reply I take your tailors are trained to easily execute CAD sketches into paper patterns, correct?

    You can still do that, but, through a human interface. Some customers do ask us to create different patterns for each product/sub-product type and name them accordingly. They then refer to the patterns by name and we use the one requested.

    Having all this automated and seamless would be nice though. Some of these features will be available to customers as part of the new website. The integration at the studio is something we need to think a bit more about.

    Am sure we can work with it.

    Thanks for the explanations, Luxire. That makes a lot of sense and means that reordering a previous order without modifications should be the quickest and easiest for you, thus resulting in a faster delivery for us.

    I've done this for my last order which is due to arrive in the next 3 days or so will give feedback on accuracy.

    Strenuously? Just copy and paste from an old order. Not that hard.

    Strenuously...[​IMG]

    All I do is filter my emails for "Luxire" and then use order numbers from there. Very strenuous indeed.

    Hey,

    received my shirt and the collar is great.

    Only thing... the button hole on the left placket is missing. :D
    I am wondering if I missed that one when I received it the first time (although I am pretty sure... but I received more then one shirt) or if the remade thee hole shirt.
    The price for the small gingham fabric went up 10$, so maybe they didn't had the original fabric any more and had to remake the entire shirt. Although it looks very similar to me (compared to the contrast lining in my white oxford, which is the same).

    Let's see how we can solve that. I would like to avoid sending it back a second time.
    (Update: Theresa answered within a few minutes. We agreed on getting it fixed locally and a reimbursement)

    But the fabric is great, as is the shirt!

    Cheers,

    Erik
