I am a bit late to the party but it took me a while to find time to take these pictures. These are the brace trousers of my new Adamo Marrone suit (charcoal grey). The cut is based on an old pair of trousers that came with a frock coat suit dating from circa 1910-20. The pattern has been tweaked to fit me better and the rise at the back made even higher:
I haven't even bothered to put my braces on and yet they sit almost perfectly on me.
In any case there are obviously other factors other than the length of the back rise.
