    Thanks for the hints. You mean I should try to increase the "Half Hips" or "Hip Front Only" measurements right? I'll see how it feels when wearing when it is out of the washing machine.
    I also realized that this is probably the highest front rise possible but it is still ok I think. Yeah I also realized that it should be maybe a bit lower for my slim body shape and slim cut trousers.

    I also have already thought of reducing the cuff size. I'll see how it fits after washing. Maybe it gets a bit more narrow. And of course I'll be careful when reducing the waist size even more. Should I reduce only back or also front?

    I'm trying to place an order via regular check out but this little graphic keeps on greeting me. Fyi I'm situated in Germany.



    [​IMG] Searching for all shipping rates...

    I usually check out via paypal but I haven't found the option to apply a gift card or discount code this way.

    Had similar issues with my shirts. Posted pictures here and some forum members suggested the excess fabric was due to my sloping shoulders and that I should get luxire to compensate for this. This is less of an issue for people with square shoulders. I can't be sure you're describing the same thing without some pictures but it could be that.

    My measurements have been adjusted for my next order so we'll see what happens.

    Did you provide and any measurements or just request them to adjust for sloping shoulders as needed?

    Thanks

    I just asked them to adjust for my sloping shoulders. I sent them a message with my pictures and they responded with "We should adjust your shirts for sloping shoulders at the front, by 0.25", and increase the side slope of back panel by additional 0.25"

    This is troubling.

    ^ While I thnk the angle that the leg is made at does cause some of the issues, I don't think the trousers above are 100% caused by the troubles of leg angles. What I'm seeing is that the pair of pants are too big and too tight in some areas, and as you spread your legs out, the extra fabric is allocated over a greater distance cleaning a lot of the mess up. It's like wearing baggier shirt, spreading your arms out, and seeing the fabric drape better.

    True, some issues are caused by a too tight fork, but the way the legs are cut is different from most of my trousers. I'm in the process of altering the trousers and I've pinned it in a way that somewhat changes the angle of the legs, and it does help a great deal.

    Would be great if you could share how they get altered to solve this problem
    I'd like to get it changed by Luxire or a local tailor

    I'm no tailor, so can't really express it in those terms. Basically open the trousers and change the angle of the legs. I'm sure your local tailor knows much more about it than I do.

    Good to see that they fixed their email response times. I love waiting 3 days to hear nothing about an update request for my order.

    @Luxire: Is there a problem with the mail servers? I've been waiting for a reaction to my emails for almost a month.

    I'm looking for advice on my first shirt and pants. Any advice from you guys would are so really be appreciated! Was thinking about the following adjustments myself:
    • Reduce arm length by 0.4 inch
    • Reduce back waist measurement by .4 inch. (I had darts made in these that take 0.8 inch out of the back, but that may be a bit too much)
    • Perhaps reduce biceps measurement a little bit. Not sure about this one though.

    As for the pants, I should reduce the waistband by 0.8 inches or something. Not sure how to fix all the creases under the seat and in the front.

    Any advice on the shirt or pants would be appreciated a lot!

    By the way. I'm looking for a nice dress stripe or hairline stripe fabric. Anyone have the $60 blue dress stripes twill perhaps? Don't want to spend too much on the second order just yet. Other recommendations under $100 are also very welcome.

    ^ Lots of issues with the above that is probably beyond most of us normal folks. The tailor thread is a much better place for it. Some of the things that they'll point out there that's causing fit issues:

    1. Low left shoulder
    2. High right hip
    3. Pelic tilt
    4. Prominent calves / knee - leg opening width too small
    5. Shirt hip may be too small
    6. Back width may be too big

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the remarks. I'll also post the pictures in the tailors thread. Hopefully they will be kind enough to offer some guidance.

    • Point 1 may just be an illusion created by how I stood in the picture. If I watch myself in the mirror, I'd even say that perhaps my right shoulder is a bit lower.
    • Never noticed it, but you're right about point 2 though. My right hip seems to be more prominent and a bit higher than the left.
    • Point 4 seems to be caused by inward pointing knees. Perhaps I can try to fix this and point 3 a bit by doing exercises. Will also consider increasing knee and ankle opening measurement a bit next pants order.
    • I'll look into 5 and 6 next time I wear the shirt.

    Thanks again!

    I think those front pleats are creating an illusion of very wide hips. I would try flat fronts and reduce the hip front measurement. You may be also better served by letting the trousers sit a little lower on your hips and reducing the rise. This may help de-ephasise your hip/crotch area and look a bit cleaner.
