    They fit fan-effing-tastic. Bravo Luxire. I will definitely get pleats next time though.

    Did you send in the nailed pants or did you just measure them nailed and used the results for your next order?

    I measured pants I had, and got an unwearable pair of pants. Then I pinned them and marked what had to be done. Sent them in, and it's basically what you see up there. I might add a bit to the fork next time to give me some room. But it's pretty good to me.

    These are the best fitting Luxire pants (without post-purchase alterations) I've seen posted here. Good job. It really looks like they've managed to fix the bunching/wedgie problem. Edit: You might want to increase the width just a little, because it looks like there's a hint of pocket flare (nothing really noticeable, but we're nerds here).

    How is this fabric? Is it see through?

    This pattern was done almost a year ago, I think. Pre-pattern change.

    Hi all,

    This is my second Luxire shirt--I love pretty much everything about the shirt except for the ripples from the second button up to the shoulder. Theresa and I shot emails back and forth about trying to fix this (its less pronounced on the newer shirt I ordered) but its still there. The yoke seems plenty big and the chest is not too tight. Any ideas on what is causing this? I was going through the pics in this thread and noticed a bunch had this issue.

    (The shirt was tucked in all day which is why its ultra wrinkled near the bottom.)

    Thanks!

    Ok, so basically sent in the pants pinned. What kind of markings did you do, since you had already pinned the pants? I am asking, since I am too in the process of altering pant patterns.

    Sorry, I meant I sent in the changes I made.

    Look at my picture and post history in this thread.

    Can anyone tell me the practical difference between 80/2 and 100/2 fabrics? Will the higher thread count be softer? crisper? look better? Thanks.
