I have never had odd trousers made up, nor (with one exception) tapered. They are what they are. In terms of preferences...I'm not of a build which makes sense for me to follow the current fashion for very slim trousers.
I think there is something to be said for the taking into account context and fabric in this. I have a few pairs of flannel trousers and am happy for them to be a fuller cut than regulr, especially the heavier and fuzzier (non-worsted - is there a more correct term?) weaves. These need cuffs, a proper break and a fairly wide leg for the whole Douglas Fairbanks Jnr effect. They have to drape from the waistband and swoosh a bit when you walk.
Having said that, my one exception mentioned earlier was a pair of very heavy, herringbone grey tweed slacks which were a typical RL flight of fancy. They were so wide they completely covered my shoe. Whilst I got the cultural refernce alright, they were just unwearable in practice. So I had them tapered - still full cut, but less cartoony.
