Should I get 16 or 17 inch leg openings on my bespoke suit?
I have size 7.5 wide dress shoes.

I generally get 21.5 cm which is about 17. I have 9.5 size shoes.

I would say that I am on the narrow side, but with small feet like you have, 16 would not be totally unreasonable.

I personally do not like pants to be like funnels at the bottom. Know that if you go 16, it will look best if the entire leg is very, very slim.
