    Okay, how is this kind of turn around happening? Was it just a shirt? I placed an order for two shirts in the beginning of May and haven't heard anything about them even with me sending them emails asking for an order status update.

    Yea, I think if there is some particular reason why the orders have to be filled out of queue it would be appropriate to email the client and explain. I sent an email to ask about my order status and received an explanation for the delay, but it would be best if Luxire could be more proactive about informing clients. Otherwise, I would think that orders should be generally filled in the order they come in.

    So these are my shorts. Little review.

    I got the standard navy chino from the website but specifically requested to not have a shiny twill, so don't blindly add the navy twill to your cart and expect the same fabric as above. Theresa emailed me some pics of navy twill samples and allowed me to choose one. This is a washed navy twill that is pretty heavy (I am guessing).

    The reason I had shorts made is because I have wider hips and finding OTR shorts that fit in the hips but aren't super baggy in the leg and overall very unflattering is tough.

    These shorts were based off a replicate. They fit very well and not sure what I'd change on the next order actually.. The construction is amazing. If I was to nitpick it would be that they have these side buttons on the fly of the shorts. I just don't do them up. I feel like if I did them up that I would have an accident one time when I'm running inside the house to use the washroom and can't get that many buttons undone in time.

    I had some twill swatches sent in the order as well and looking at getting the exact same shorts in the maroon twill.

    just dropped off my Luxire navy linen trou at the tailor...they came out about a half inch long for some reason, so I'm having them hemmed up a bit. I'll post some pics once I get them back. Other than that, they turned out really well. I still have some slight bow leg issues, but it's not so bad that it's really going to bother me all that much, and I'd probably need to do full in-person bespoke to really solve it. The thigh and hip I'm going to increase by just a quarter of an inch on my next order, it's not too bad right now but I think it will be best if it's just a tiny bit bigger overall.

    I also really love the fabric..they're not too dark like a true navy, they look a little lighter and more colorful in person, which IMO makes them ideal for an odd trouser. They're pretty thick just like the Luxire chocolate brown linen, so they breathe well and stay cool but they're not too thin and they still feel like a substantial dress pant.

    I already made the changes and ordered these and these. More linen! Hopefully they can keep the turnaround times nice a speedy so I can get maximum summer time wearing them. I'm also still looking for a standard mid grey linen but haven't decided which one I want yet.

    Was reading through the PS archive and came across the below regarding the angle in which a trouser leg is cut. Could be helpful for those having the same issue.

    I really hope Luxire address this. I've been wondering why my RTWs fit so much better, when the measurements are so close to my Luxires.

    For trousers I kind of get why they might take a little bit longer, but if someone is putting in an order and getting it shipped out in a week while other people are waiting around wondering what in the hell is going on because Luxire can't get someone to respond to emails, that's kind of stupid.

    [​IMG] I wonder if this is something that can be fixed by an alterationist, taking in or letting out the seat/thigh in a particular way.

    I've altered the angle and the curve of the seat, and I made a mockup of the new leg angle. It's tough to hand sew all of this with duck canvas, so it's taking a lot of time. It might be hard to see in the pictures, but the wrinkles in the seat and legs have virtually disappeared. It also makes a big difference when seen from the side, from a droopy diaper seat to a normal seat.

    It took me a bit of experimentation before getting it right, but if I can do it, having never tailored anything before, so can Luxire.
