Help.... Potty trained, but not?

My son, when naked, is completely potty trained. As soon as I put clothes on him, he potties in them. We have been working on potty training for a little over a month now, and he does absolutely amazing, when he gets to run around naked. He usually doesn't tell us when he has to go, he just goes to his potty and does his business. If he poo's he does come and tell us afterwards, so we can clean his bottom. He does wear either a pull up or diaper at night time, but 9 days out of 10 it will be dry when he wakes up, only potties during the night if I give him something to drink too late. I am definitely at my wits end at what to do now, since he just potties in his clothes when he is wearing them. He is a very smart boy, can talk in complete sentences, etc. He started going on his own when he is naked, so I know he is ready. He will be 3 in December.
Has anyone else gone through this? What did you do?

My son was like this when we first really started potty training back in April. We eliminated the pull ups and diapers completely and let him run around in underwear all the time so it was easier for him to go if he needed to. Within just a few weeks he was totally potty trained.

Can he dress himself, by himself? If he has difficulty pulling his pants down that may be an obstacle for him as it is easier to just run in and do business if he is already naked. Just a thought! Let me know how it goes. Good luck
