    The area in between will be tapered. I'm not sure you can even create an abrupt decrease like you are describing. I have always been told that tailors can control the waist to knee taper and the knee to ankle taper.

    You could add a dart at the hem.

    Will adding pleats affect thigh width at the mid-thigh? In other words, if I were to add pleats to a flat front trouser and increase the seat width, would I need to reduce the thigh measurement (taken 2" below the crotch seam) to prevent from having excess fabric around there?

    Luxire, I'm curious if it'd be possible to order a t-shirt made out of something like a crisp poplin-fabric?
    So like, to make it as easy as possibly for you I guess the order would be a short-sleeve polo with no collar(but possibly a zipper on the left shoulder) and no split hem.

    Not to challenge this, I'm genuinely curious: what would you do with a woven tshirt? Presumably it'd have to be a henley not really a T.

    Well my intention would be to wear it, just like any other garment.
    If what you're wondering is what purpose it'd fill, well essentially just a "dressy" t-shirt, to be worn in summer with perhaps a blazer or some dress-pants and sneakers (so definitely more of a SW&D piece than a CM one)
    It isn't actually an original idea of mine, but something that has already been done by high-fashion brands, though the pricepoint of those are far out of my reach :)

    Can certainly be done.

    You can simply choose the desired fabric and place the order with the details in the notes, including images.

    Order number best shared by the customer.

    The collar is what we have started calling "The Longflower".

    My trousers and shirts arrived this morning! The trousers fit much better, and the off white linen is a very nice fabric for the price. I had Luxire copy an Eidos and a Kamkura collar, and they did a fantastic job! I couldn't be happier with the way they made it.

    For my shirts, I had increased the chest measurement by 2", because the chest was too tight for my last shirts. However, the chest feels just as tight, while the back is much looser now. Is there any way to fix this?

    White 1 button placket polo shirt in fresco chambray. It's a lovely fabric, but the fit of this shirt seems a bit worse than the other one, especially in the shoulder area.

    Pale blue cool cotton linen. This fabric is the nicest linen mix I've ever had. It's light weight, but not flimsy, and certainly not as wrinkle prone as an all linen shirt. The colour and texture are perfect as well. I'd highly recommend this fabric. It has a hidden BD collar, based on kamakura, and convertible cuffs. The button folds back, so it's hidden inside the cuff when using it with cufflinks.

    The more I see it, the more I want Luxire to make me a couple of polos with that Eidos-based collar!
