It seems that most suits in my size (42L) come default with leg openings of around 9 to 9.5 inches at the bottom. I wear pants with a slight or no break and cuffs, and maybe it's my imagination, but it seems wide in comparison to my 10D US shoes. Comparing my suits to the posters on what are you wearing right now, I wonder do people here routinely taper their pant legs down to a smaller opening? I am considering modifying this to 8 or 8.5 width but have had tailors tell me before that 9 is already quite tapered. The suits in question are RLPL, Isaia, Corneliani, and BB Fitzgerald model. Do skinny pant legs only work for mod style suits or fashion forward type short jacket designs?
