    When does the discount on VBC end?

    I'm on Eastern Standard Time and just realized there's a promotion going on.

    Picked up my order from the linen deal today. 2 pairs of trousers, 1 grey herringbone + 1 off white. Both with double forward pleats + 2 inch cuffs.
    I'm a happy camper:

    N.B. These are straight out of the box, so they'll need a good pressing (e.g. The pleats almost look like they flare, even though they really don't).

    @EFV that is pretty impressive, wish I could nail pants fit like yours do! What's the trick to suppress bunching under the seat/"butt cheeks" (sorry for lack of proper English term)?

    Cheers! Just continually kept changing small things for every order, like adjusting the rise, adding more fabric to the front of the hips than the back (since I've got a small seat). Luxire made some changes to the pattern to avoid the bunching problem that a lot of people seemed to have initially (including me), that made a huge difference. I think I nailed down this fit with my 3rd order. I guess most would suggest sending in a pair of well fitting trousers. I never did that though, just provided measurements.

    Had to try them out with jackets, so here are some bonus pics:

    Deets on the slipper? I need myself some, along with a wool flannel night down for when I'm feeling cozy!

    @EFV did you have luxire work a strong curved shape into the legs? I wouldn't think pants can hang like that without the extra shaping. They look great!

    These are from a local Stockholm store, called Ströms.

    Erik, those pants are great. Well done to you and Luxire. I suppose my neverending pants' edit continues

    I actually didn't, for some reason they just follow the curve really well anyway. Weird huh?

    Anyone ever played with the yoke height? Luxire's normal yoke height seems much higher than some of my other shirts.

    @EFV Will chime in to say that those trousers look terrific. Great concept and well executed (so cheers to Luxire as well).

    Cheers all! I've seen $600 Neapolitan bespoke trousers that didn't fit as good as these do (I won't name any of these tailors).

    @EFV Fantastic fit. Is that the Zaremba waist?

    Cheers! No, do they have trousers with this kind of waist? I think I got the inspiration for the waist from Tailorable in Korea.

    Hi @luxire @LuxireStudio

    Planning for some navy chinos. I have a swatch from the Navy Plain but I can't say that it looks like the picture on your website. The swatch reminds more of the Midnight Blue Plain. Which of them shall I choose if I'm looking for the darkest navy cloth?

    Have you considered luxires' Brisbane Moss offerings? I have a few trousers made up of various weights and they are fantastic.
