    That's definitely a way. My point rather was: if 80% have this issue there are two ways this situation emerges:
    1. 80% of the people measure incorrectly (which I would then define as a difficult measuring process)
    2. There is a problem with the cut or how Luxire could put the measurements into no crocht issue pants

    As some of my pants have it while others with same measurements don't, I guess it's more a type 2 problem.
    Thus I think it should not be handled individually (though it might help the individual), but it should be generally cared of by Luxire - it's just a hint to improve fitting performance.

    Hi did join, but, we have not been satisfied with the approach to solving the issues.

    Still relying on our older team of masters for the same.

    We may bring in another person for this task, as soon as we find one.

    Thank you for the insight. Will review the same. Results though will only be visible over a 2-3 months period.

    As someone has pointed out earlier in this thread, it looks like the problem is that the pants are cut like /\ instead of more like II.

    Cutting the pants like this is great for jeans and casual pants, but looks pretty off on dress pants, and creates these kind of creases/bulges of excess fabric both at the front and back.

    Interesting theory. I had no idea this difference existed. I always thought that "pants = pants". Did you experience this issue with your recent duck canvas pants as well?

    So, if I'm reading this correctly, it might be a good idea to wait with ordering trousers until the issues are resolved?

    Yes, but only slightly. They still look pretty great imho. :)

    I started looking through this thread and realised this was a common problem with many dress pants posted here. It will be more or less prominent due to build and posture of course. Pleats can probably have some effect on this as well.

    You can see the difference if you lay dress pants and jeans out flat on the ground though. I mean, dress pants should still look a bit /\ (so you have some mobility), but less so than casual pants.

    Less than optimal examples:

    Shoes are still in trial. The last couple of pairs made are nearing the level of satisfaction that would give us comfort to ship them. We are close.

    Glad to hear the shoes are getting better, hoping to see some pics of mine soon!

    Exactly right, and this theory also explains much of the underarm bunching / excess fabric found on shirts.

    Here is some criticism which I hope you will find constructive:

    The shoes do not look that great. May I suggest only showing pictures when you have achieved the level of quality that you desire? Otherwise it just looks underwhelming.

    The second pair looks especially inferior. Do you think it would be a good idea to perfect more traditional styles of shoes before venturing into the less traditional models?

    These are test pairs that we continue making to refine the process. The images are posted as the enquiries are constant.

    The real change we are seeing are on the inside. After being made, they are worn for a few days to test comfort, accuracy of last making process, weight, balance etc.

    We will overwhelm you soon :)
