Assalam o alaikum,
Can you please let me know the reference for following ahadith which you have quoted and other similar hadiths ..with reference no. eg : book no and Hadith nos please ..
Have your lower garment halfway down your shin; if you cannot do it, have it up to the ankles. Beware of trailing the lower garment, for it is conceit."

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

This Prophetic narration is authentic and it was reported by Imaam Ahmad  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him in his Musnad, Hadeeth number 16667, and it was also reported by Abu Daawood  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him in his Sunan, Hadeeth number 4084.

Allaah Knows best.
