I have a question for any tailors. I regularly have my dress pants tapered down the leg. My tailor will typically take most of the fabric in through the outseam seam. He has stated that he can only do so much before the pressed seam becomes off-center. I've heard that taking in the legs is typically done primarily through the outseam by other tailors as well. My question is, why do tailors do this? why not take it in equally from both inseam and outseam?
