Default mental ray cloth overlapping

hey all!

im working on a school project to make a famous historical person in 3d. i chose einstein and im finishing up on some details. one of the problems i have is that his mental ray cloth pants and shirt are overlapping eachother and it doesnt look that great. could any help me and tell me if i can do some settings so his shirt always stays on top and the pants dont stick out?

what the hell is mental ray cloth, there is no such thing.
Theres Maya cloth (Maya 4 - 8), Ncloth (8.5) and Syflex.

anyway, did you make the pants collidable ???.

If that does not work try something I have used before.

When using Sylfex I would use the cloth to drive a dupulate that is wrapped deformed and made that collidable, as sometimes cloth on cloth does not work.

other than that update to 8.5 as ncloth rules
