    Some pics I took to assess the fit of some mtm pants and shirt from Luxire (loafers are Rancourt and belt I bought in Croatia in 1988):

    I like your style, but I think the button stance on this jacket is way off for your body. I acknowledge that I'm judging from still shots, camera angle, etc., but it just looks too high.


    I'd say those pants look to fit very nicely.

    Thanks, those are the kind of comments that actually help, unlike others.

    I gave you the thumbs up in reference to the pants. solely the pants. I wouldn't want to be seen in this shirt not even while fishing nor lumbering.

    Thanks guys about the pants. Luxire can definitely make a mean pant.

    :laugh: at clapyron. I love the shirt. Might be my favorite summer shirt now. Lightweight, open weave, w/ unlined cuffs and collar. It'll be perfect for fishing or travel. Will probably wear it untucked w/ the sleeves rolled up and another button or two undone prob. w/ shorts

    emptym, were those Luxire pants made from another pair of existing trousers you had, or did the make them off your measurements? If the first, how do the fits of the two compare?

    Hey D. They've made me three pairs. One from measurements and two from an existing pair. Both types were done accurately. The one based off of measurements I posted here. I will definitely be getting more pants made by them.

    They've also made me a completely unlined/unpadded/uncanvased cotton twill jacket and I'll be sending them more fabric for that (like some vintage woolen flannel from the tailor's daughter that I washed in hot water to make into a semi-felt). They seem to be able to make anything, or willing to try for sure. Mr. K sent them a quilted jacket recently for duplication.
