I see what you are saying.


However, an observation I have, is that I am currently wearing that pictured outfit with the shirt untucked and the same thing happens (in the same place even).  So I'm not sure I am convinced the fault lies with the pants/trousers.  Although the shirt does "sit" on my lap, thus constraining the movement of the front half of the bottom of my shirt, the same way pants would.

Higher rise pants wont fix the underlying issue but it can be less noticeable with them.

 

I would try the other members suggestion of widening the hip measurement as if the shirt can't drape properly then its going to bunch up.

 

That being said here is another alternative:

Not an issue for this shirt as they accidentally gave me covered placket and probably not an issue with thicker fabrics as well.

That, in my opinion, is not something that is fixed. If you hunch over, your stomach is going to pop out more, just as it's going to be straighter when you stand up straight. Your body's length is changing depending on your position whereas your shirt is static. The fabric has no where to go as your body contracts. You can reduce the appearance by width there though. From what I see based on the side images, it seems like you have excess fabric.

Every time I sit down I think about my shirt penis now.

Anyone tried the apple fresco cotton for pants? I was thinking of placing an order for my first Luxire pants in this fabric.

Interesting, EFV. Be the first to try. smile.gif

It seems like an almost ideal fabric for SS pants (the light green colour should be able to match with lots of stuff in my wardrobe), but I had hoped someone had a pair of pants they could post pics of. I might just order them anyway.

Luxire, I didn't find it online yet: how does it work to send in own cloth for making pants and what would it cost?

Is it normal to not receive any verification/notification of an order? I placed mine on 7 March and while Paypal confirms the charge, I haven't gotten any message from Luxire. The website just says my order is unfulfilled.

They charge when they start work, and then you get a notification once it ships. That's been my experience on my orders at any rate. It seems to be around a week from starting work to getting the shipment notification generally.

Gotcha...thanks!
post #8894 of 11659

Recently, they charge when the order is placed, not when the work starts.

 

I always get an order confirmation email, but I don't hear again until they ship the product.

 

BTW checking more often dosen't seem to get the product made any faster.

It's like repeatedly pushing the elevator button: it might not work, but it makes me feel like I'm doing something.
