Very good looking trousers yo'uve got there. I am still considering launching an order with Luxire but somewhy I'm a bit concerned of the fit. Anyway, I think we have a similar issue (I'm approx. 5'9). While I used to wear low rise pants in order to appear taller (front rise between 8.75 and 9" in the past), I realized that most of the times, it made the belt waist visible which isn't very classy IMHO. Now I'm wearing 9.5-10" max and it does look better, more manly. Still, it's a big discussion for short guys.
