I'm 5'10 with size 10 feet and wear 7.5-7.75 for chinos and 8-8.25 for dressier trousers. For me, there isn't one ideal proportion for all types of trousers. For instance, I have a pair of chinos and a pair of flannels with the same hem opening (8.25). The flannels look well proportioned while the chinos look a sloppy. The absence of a trouser crease allows the excess to billow outwards rather than gather at the front and back. That's my theory at least.
