 I had the same issue, my pockets and pleats are offset by 3cm from the waistband via bar tacks and on some trousers the pocket openings were too small for my giant hands. In my latest pattern iteration the pocket opening is 16cm which works very well.
Good choice! It is the perfect summer fabric in my opinion I almost never wear cotton trousers more than once in a row, though with this one I've caught myself wearing it oftentimes two days in a row in the last few weeks. I've asked Luxire for a beige and a mid grey version of this fabric. Maybe you should reset the button of the waistband tab so that there is a little less pulling going on.

So, they just released a phantom sketch of the Bangkok bomber...     ...completely unrelated but what is @caseyfud up to, nowadays?

Looks great with a navy blazer and even casual with a polo. My name is clapeyron and I approve this fabric.   I had to keep myself from recommending this fabric right away...
what happens when you fold the lapels to the width of the sample jacket? This would decrease the collar and narrow the shoulders. Though that is entirely dependent on how the jacket was constructed, hard to tell given just one picture.
 I used the same measurements, though I narrowed the sleeves. I did not experience too much shrinkage.  I like the colour, and I like that it is mostly opaque, these trousers for instance are not lined to the knee unlike my other white chinos. I wouldn't describe the fabric as wrinkle prone, but what you see in these images is after 6 hours of wear, initially they were pressed but they loose the crease during the day and start to look more casual. For that reason, if I...
