Untucked shirt fit - are these too tight?

I'm not sure if I am using the correct terminology, but in the following images you can see the ends of the shirts splay outwards, so there is a bit of gap (near the crotch):
Do you think the fit in the above shirts are too tight? Should the ends of the shirt come together at the bottom when untucked?

Maybe because they are not accounting for the increasing width as you go down from your waist to hips. Since they are untucked shirts, they should be sitting around your waist, therefore, only tapers down. So if the shirt is slightly too long for your torso and sits under your waist, I am assuming the hips will cause the flaring. First pic, the shirt ends just above the hips. Second pic ends over the hips. Thus, second pic has more flaring out than the first pic.

I like to be able to pinch a couple of inches of fabric all the way from the hem to the chest. This still looks like a tailored fit but lets the shirt hang reasonably. Less than that, they'll pull too tight when you sit. Also, when you raise your arms, the hem will ride up and won't go back down on its own, so you'll be pulling it down all day.

These look like there's no room. They're pulling at the hips when he just stands there.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
