    @Alan Bee your trousers, at least viewed from the front, appear to have a good deal of bagging and rippling along the rear leg line that results in less than clean drape. I have a similar problem with lots of different trouser models due (I surmise) to forward hips and a hollow lower back. Have you discussed with your tailor?

    You may well have a point on the trousers. This donegal pair made in 2005, are the only hold-over item from my MTM experiment with Oxxford tailors.

    They are a tad too full in the break so they bag a bit (I somehow like that bagging on this fabric). Not sure if I attribute the lack of a vertical drop to the length of the trousers, or my odd shape.

    Yes I do have a very hollow (lower) back from too many deadlifts. Though I’m not sure how a hollow lower back (not glutes. I’ve got plenty of that) affects the drape of a trouser.

    Forward hips, maybe too ...

    @An Acute Style

    At odds with one another? Please enlighten me (no sarcasm).

    Indeed trousers could use a trim but I like the way the fabric hangs at the ankle :-D

    Agreed on the trousers, I like the look and silhouette it gives. It's the sleeves that I think need shortening. I am interested also to see what @An Acute Style details on the textures being at odds.
