    The excess fabric isnt actually excess, the bunching is caused because the hips are too tight. Add some room to the hips and it will sit better. Making an already very slim shirt even slimmer wont help at all though.

    Henry, I always wondered when I read suggestions like that.
    Maybe you are able to explain it to me.

    In how far can a shirt too tight cause bunching like that?
    I was of the impression both the waistband as well as the belt prevented the shirt from falling back "down" into the pants anyways?

    I agree with Henry. I have a couple of shirts where my hip measurement is too tight and have similar issues with those shirts. With Spurious, to further exacerbate the problem his pants rise is too low causing further emphasize of the shirt lower back.

    With the hips area on the your shirt too tight the shirt does not fall low enough and is held up by the hips as a "platform" for the shirt material. The "excess" material is seen in the vertical axis and would actually go away if the shirt was able to be tucked in properly.

    For some of us, our shirt backs may still looks like this after sitting down and standing back up if your pants does not have friction waistband to keep the back material well tucked.

    One way to further check this issue to view the shirt untucked. If there is excessive flaring of the lower placket under the last button it shows that the hip/seat measurement needs to be increased.

    @easy_golfing Probably around 1 month
    @OlafG I don't think so, at least not online. Have Dugdale any flannel in this range?

    I ordered mine on July 25, and still haven't heard of them. Just wrote Theresa an email to ask if she has any news about them.

    Same order date as me, I got a shirt and trousers. I'm hoping within the next week they at least start production.

    Thank you. I might have been misunderstood, but I was not going to decrease the waist any further on the shirt. I was talking about the pants.
    I wasnt going to change the measurements on the shirt, but now that you two adviced me to, I think I will reconsider.

    Any recommendations on how much to increase the hip measurements? Is half an inch enough?


    I will check once I get the shirt back from dry cleaning and see if the issue is still there.

    Thanks you two for the input.

    I ordered mine on July 15 and got them on Friday. So in my case it is a month. Maybe it can be around 5 -6 weeks now

    Luxire had told me 3-4 weeks from order date. Mine was August 1st, but I also made another order on August 9 for the Blue Gingham and another one on August 14th for the End on End. So who the hell knows where I'm at. I don't believe any of it has hit my card.
