A horisontal or a litlle angled end of the pants? - Page 2

Yes. More difficult on RTW because the outlets at the hem have to be adjusted to accommodate the slant. Easier on custom but you have to know how to shape the outlets to allow for the slant. See pics in the tutorial. The example shows the back part to be 1 1/4" longer than the front with 1 3/4" cuffs

Hm... I have a few pairs of pants with unfinished hems to bring them to the tailor soon. I wonder if my tailor will know how to slant cuff them, but I suspect not.

I agree.

 

When I was in the service I had all my dress uniform pants tailored that way...shame that I've gotten away from it.

Despos, why are there so few tailors who even attempt to slant a cuffed trouser?

 

And yes, I agree, for civlian dress, if you can achieve a 1 1/4' drop it would be ideal because of the shape of most shoes.

 

You also want to have length to drop to the bottom of your foot without covering too much of the heel of your shoe.

 

Really good to find a tailor who actually knows this sort of stuff  -  I hope you realise how rare that is  -  would you be willing to alter a few of my trousers for me? Or would that be pushing my luck a little?

I suppose a photo of angled pants wearing will be a cognitive. Please provide me this visual experience :)

This is how Indiana Jones had his pants hemmed.

OK, now I see that the pants of IJ are too short for this boots. And the angle comes throughout of whole pant. I prefer a straight line to the central seam and an angle to the back side.

Could you tell me how this is done in easy-speak? I recently visited my tailor and he had no idea how to do it, unfortunately. A link to pictures would be awesome, as I could not locate thread.

I would change my tailor, seriously, I really would.

Agreed, and not just for not knowing how to do slanted cuffs. censored.gif
The guy recently messed up on two things I gave him. I'm going to visit him tomorrow to get him to fix them, but not sure how he will react, as I could technically "ignore" them. Also not sure if he is capable of fixing them.
But I digress...

Hello Sir,

 

    This angled hem looks to be a west point cut style.  I used to get quite a few requests for these types of finished trouser hems from officers a long time ago. 

 

Regards
