Cuff looks good to me, you can try pressing a little if you think it's sticking out.
I think the cuff looks fine, however, my totally unsolicited advice is that you could stand to add some more room to the calf, knee and thigh measurements. I'm not advocating a 'baggy' fit, but that bunching you see from the knee down is likely caused by tightness. The side-on shot really shows them grabbing the back of your calves. I've had the same issue on mine and have gradually started adding some more room.
Agreed. I think cuff looks fine, but something could be done to the fit to get rid of that bunching/the way the fabric falls.
Yes I am still struggling a bit with the fit of the pants/shirt, I chose not to post all pictures requesting input because there is a separate thread for that, but since the conversation has already initiated here, I may as well x-post from the tailor feedback thread:
Had some items made from Luxire, and I can't resolve the bunching in the lower back of the shirt, and pants. Would love any insight:
Their recommendations after this iteration are:
1) Reduce the midsection width of the shirt by 0.5" flat (total 1" at the shirt waist).
2) Reduce back pant length by 0.5" and reduce inseam by 0.5" at crotch.
@1up - I'll echo what others are saying about widening at the knee and calf. Luxire's recommendations will help with the excess fabric under the seat, but you'll be shocked how much better the pants hang/drape once you widen at the knee and calf. I had the exact same issue with Luxire making the same recommendations, which helped incrementally. It was not until I widened so that the fabric was no longer catching on my calves that I saw the excess fabric under the seat and at the knees completely disappear.
Should I suggest to increase the width from the knee down (Knee / Calf / Opening) by approx 0.25"?
Also, what is another popular pant that forum members seem to like? I've tried the wool-rich pants and mid-grey flannel so far.
@1up, I'd also add some width to the back of the upper thighs, probably about 1" per leg.
