I actually got a quick reply from Theresa, and after comparing the swatches, she said they used the right fabric. If that is the case, they really should change the pictures, because the ones representing the raw look nothing like the finished product.
So, apparently they have different fabrics from the mill now than they did when the pictures were taken, so the colour is different. So the pictures on the site aren't really representative anymore. Knowing this, I'm not sure how people are supposed to choose a colour.
My luxire shirt and pants arrived just now. Shirt is cool white linen cotton, while pants are light tan glen plaid linen. This order took 18 days to arrive, and I was lucky no import duty was involved (I reckon the chance of you getting zapped is 50% if you order 2 items or more). Anyway after trying it on straight from the box (who doesn't), I can say that luxire nailed it this time. It is my second attempt in tweaking the measurement, compared with the previous order, I feel like this is the right direction. I've decreased most of the measurement by an inch or more and while there is room for improvements, I am very satisfied with this one. I'd like to ask what further modifications would you recommend me, and should I decrease the chest measurement further to flatten the chest area (I've seen styleforum members who have shirt with no creases around the armpit, and find that really nice).
I will take the full body picture should it be necessary, once the clothes are properly ironed
Those pants need a higher rise in my opinion.

This will be my next collar. A english spread with 3.5 points. Post some fit pics brother
Does anyone have experience with increasing/decreasing the rise of trousers? I have a pair that's high rise, but it caused a saggy seat. Kind of the diaper look that some have complained about.
I decreased the rise with my next pair, which clears up the seat issue, but as a result the trousers are lower rise than I'd like. Is there any way of having high rise trousers without a saggy seat?
Revisiting an old image. Tuxedo shirt with provision for using studs as well as buttons.
Any plans to restock the duck canvas?
Interesting; is this the glen plaid linen? If so, any chance you can share some more of your impressions and pics?
Here you go. It's out of the box, so there are some wrinkles. Please excuse the stubble. I think the hips are too narrow, which pushes the shirt up when tucked and causes the pulling at the waist. I specified a different measurement for waist front and back, so I may have to tinker some more with that too. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.
Quote: I have the same problem.
What order number is that? I like the collar. Do the collar points tuck under a jacket?
Did you decrease both front and back rise? I found only decreasing the back rise worked quite well as you have to pull up the trousers further in the back that way, which gets rid of the diaper look, while keeping the rise in roughly the same place as it was before.
Not sure how well raising the overall rise would work, though. I think it's difficult to get proper fitting high rise trousers, especially if you are slim and have a somewhat muscular ass.
Be interesting to hear what Luxire and others say about this problem.
I decreased the back rise. Maybe the solution would be to leave the seat exactly like it is, and just make the waistband taller? Would that increase the rise without causing a diaper seat?
The collar tucks nicely under a jacket. I threw on a tie as well for those wondering how it looks with a four-in-hand.
