From your description, the rise is too long. The rise may be reduced by lowering the waistband. Alternatively, the crotch may be shortened, which is more complicated. Either measure requires a highly skilled tailor so as not to ruin the trousers. I've had this done numerous times.

I have Park Avenues but they do not last the winters where I live due to snow and rock salt. They cost too much to replace annually. Rubber covers are just not convenient or really useable. Park Avenues are Oxfords, not Bluchers.
