They can be but RTW trousers aren't cut/shaped to accommodate this. When I cut trousers I adjust the outlets to allow for making the back 1" longer in back than the front with a cuff. It could be done to any trouser but it is a bit difficult when the trouser is made and finished.

Hm. I had bespoke trousers made at Spoon and we're in the midst of the final fitting and they're telling me I can't have slanted cuffs. Can you elaborate on the method you construct the outlet to allow slanted cuffs?

+1 for Ricardo's

I've been happy with Oxford. They do a slight slant on my cuffs. Not quite as much as Despos mentioned.

For anything more complex than a hem, which just about any tailor should be able to do well, I use Bob Stankovic in Menlo Park. His work has been impeccable so far. He's a nice guy, but be sure to specify when you need your clothes back, as he is an old timer with grand-kids that are his priority. smile.gif

+1 He's my good buddy. He's done complicated work for me to cater to my sartorial obsessions.
And with great success . He was the main outside tailor for Wilkes Bashford, Palo Alto.

In SanFrancisco proper, stay away from John Minor.
He ruined a pair of slacks of mine which I bought
in London.

if you are looking somewhere in los altos, cassara brothers clothier does a pretty good job.

friendly service. i would ask for mario senior (the father) instead of the son.
wasn't too happy about how they slimmed down a couple of shirts. but trousers and jackets are pretty nice.

I've been happy with Andreas George on Bush at Kearny in SF. Consistent two week turnaround, does a great job with more complex work. I have to have the shoulders rotated on most of my SCs.

I use Carlos at Oxxford. I've been very happy with his work for many years.

I've been giving Andreas Gorges all of my work. I've thrown some complicated stuff at him and what I get back has always been well done. He was recommended to me by one of the more fastidious people on StyleForum.

I've been using Andreas Gorges and would recommend him as well.

Here are a few photos of cuffs we did yesterday. Back is actually 1 1/4" longer than the front. 1 3/4" cuffs on 10/20" opening circumference. The cuff width and opening measure don't really matter. Just threw that in for perspective. Won't tell you how we do it but will say how I learned this. By folding cloth to make angled cuffs and transferring this to a paper pattern. The a lot of trial and error.
