Going to blame this on my recent fascination with yoga.

There is minimal compensatory padding in that jacket.

seems okay but it is too dark on my screen to see clearly. Please post side view also so the front line can be seen in relation to back.

well they are 17.75" on size 8.5US shoes. this hem opening is pretty average with what most traditional SR tailoring houses have determined for my size. Yes the do have slanted hem.

I find the line looks cleanest when pants are made to taper in the thigh, then fall straight from about the knee to the hem, as seems to be the case with yours.

Very interesting topic - first of all I agree very much with the opening remarks: "For long, I have always felt that pants (and their fit), esp. in our times, is a neglected part of RTW or bespoke. It is even more interesting to note that people who fuss about the tiniest of details on their jackets are totally careless or clueless when it comes to their pants. - The question that has bothered me is that not only why they (pants) are neglected by customers but also by the cutters and pant makers." PS Realizing that this is not the thread to discuss personal preferences, i dare say that if the braced trousers are made the way they should be, and yours are, there is absolutely no need for any back belt!

Is it a bad idea to buy pants (second hand/deep discount of course) with inseams that are too long with the intention to tailor them?

Err, no, why would that be a bad idea? Many new trousers come unfinished (very long) with the expectation that you will have your tailor hem them.

Thank you so much for your awesome post. It was very informative.

One problem I have that I didn't see mentioned is that the pants will break in 2 locations. Even if I make them shorter, they continue to break in 2 locations.

And the line of the crease, instead of being straight up and down, will fall towards the outside of my leg.

What are the solutions to those problems?
