A question about fit of pants. This effect from the side seems to be common to every pair of trouser I own including higher end trouser makers. Is this problem pervasive with OTR, namely the absence of a nice line in the back. Is it just a matter of posture? For I find that if I lean forward a bit, I can get that straight line. Can this be fixed in OTR pants reasonably simply? And how good must the tailor be to do so?
The cuff measurement is 8.25 so not too skinny. I'm a 33 waist. This is a slim fit pant.
BTW: I wonder if there is still too much cuff showing or if this is within norm, though on the "forward" side?
It is a matter of posture or perhaps weight loss but it can be fixed. First and foremost, is the waist/seat loose? If not, it's probably because the back rise is a little too high and the stride is a little too full. Back rise is fixed by dropping the back part of the waistband slighty to take up the slack. Stride is fixed by slicing open the crotch seam and opening both inseams to the knee then taking in the back part of the inseam only. When the wrinkles are horizontal, the problem is in length. When they're vertical, the problem is in width or stride. When they're diagonal, it's a little bit of both. Your tailor should easily be able to do either of these alterations.
The jacket cuff may be a little high in the forward part of the sleeve. Looks like the cuff is working. Not an easy fix whether dropping whole sleeve length (depending on how those cuffs are sewn up) or dropping only the front part.
