    Ages ago there was some discussion around this, think we were calling it 'billowing' at the time, might help to search as there were some good suggestions but I recall one member getting a hidden button added between X & Y buttons to prevent it (at least on the placket). The other common suggestion was higher rise trousers to minimise it.

    That, and usually it means the shirt is simply too slim.

    If I have learnt anything, it's that achieving a GQ-esque slim fit while still remaining comfortable/mobile when sitting and standing is impossible. You have to compromise.

    I prefer to have a smaller back waist than front to minimise extra fabric at the back while still being comfortable in the front.

    If you're really slim or have a back that curves in a lot, or a big drop, then darts might be the only way to go.

    What about having the lowest buttonhole placed horizontally?

    Sorry if this is OT but is there a "How does it fit" Thread in this forum or should I post the pictures here for a discussion (luxire cloths)?

    I'm looking for shirt in white twill, so found the 2/100 Alumo twill:
    http://luxire.com/products/alumo-white-twill-2-100

    It just doesn't look like twill on the web, more like a panama weave or something. Can anyone confirm whether or not it is twill? And if twill, maybe compare it to the other twills (swatches)?

    Also, have anyone ordered a collar similar to this:

    Thanks in advance.

    For anyone interested in longevity - I have just hit 18 months with a batch of 5 shirts that get worn once a week - each shirt has had about 70 wears.

    Collars and elbows are still in good condition on all shirts. Only one button came off in total which is negligible and better than my general expectations.

    Overall, really happy.

    I got a shirt in the mentioned alumo fabric and it is in fact a twill fabric, which i really like, especially for the price.

    Propercloth has a similar one, just ape their measurements and pictures. It looks like a soft interlining, and you can take your pick of fused or unfused depending on preference.
    Is it transparent, at all? That would be my only concern, otherwise I intend to add it to my list. Thanks

    Great, thanks!
    A soft version of Milano II, I guess?

    Do you use fused or unfused collars? If they are fused, how does the fusing hold up?

    I got my new Luxire order a few days ago. The pants and the blue linen shirt are new. The green striped shirt I've already ordered some months ago.
    The pants fit very well in my opinion. I'll let the blue pants make a bit wider at the hips and waist by my local tailor.

    I'm not so satisfied with the fit of the shirt. One issue is, that I've chosen the waist width too narrow. The other issue, which is a bigger problem from my point of view, are the strange crinkles under the armpits. Where can they come from? Shoulder shape? The somehow also exist at the green shirt, where the waist width is ok.

    What else would you change?

    Sorry I can't really offer an educated response here, but I just had to add: this makes a wonderful casual summer outfit. With a pair of brown loafers, perfect get-up for a night in town!

    I'm really a noob at this, so take whatever I say with several grains of salt:

    Pants seem too long, especially the beige ones. Would need to see you wear proper shoes before can fully be judged. There is also wrinkling near the crotch area on both the front and back. I'm not sure how a tailor fixes this, but I'm pretty sure it can fit better as I've seen fits where it looks cleaner (I understand the linen contributes to the wrinkling).

    The shirt seems to have sleeves that are too long and maybe too wide as well which causes the bunching near the elbow area. As you said the waist seems too narrow, especially compared to the bottom which causes it to look flared out. The shoulders might also be too wide, judging by where the yoke means the shoulder?

    I just realized there's no buttons on the trouser that are visible. Is it all clasps?

    As far as the fit goes, I'll throw out that it seems that the front is a tad too tight all around the body and not just the waist. Are you using a different chest measurement for the blue shirt? That one it seems bigger (too big?), but if they're the same measurements I'm of the opinion that the fabric may just drape differently.
