Well, I did them myself, and it took me a couple of tries to get the length where I wanted it. I thought about tapering, but I was afraid changing the leg on these might not work well with the rest of the shape, and as it turned out I'm pretty happy with them now that they're not stacking and I don't have to cuff them. I wanted them a length where I could do a single cuff with higher shoes (boots, etc.), but wouldn't have to cuff with loafers and oxfords, which I wear quite a bit.
This may have been discussed already, but FWIW, on me these are somewhat low rise, which makes it tricky since the point where the leg opening hits my ankle/foot will change depending on which notch of my belt I'm on.
Don't know if that's mostly because mine are a shade large (29, and I would probably be best with a stretched out pair of 28), or if it is something others have also experienced. It does seem like with the hips/pockets/upper leg situated properly, the waistband of these is fairly low, so I tried to base the length on that.
