Recently I have purchased a couple of pair of plain front wool trousers that I ended up taking to two different tailors to have hemmed. In both cases I asked for just a slight break with no cuff, and in both cases the tailor told me I should angle the hemline so that the back (towards the heel of the shoe) is slightly longer. It seems to me that on pants with virtually no break the hemline is straight, which makes sense, but I'm wondering what the thoughts are on the advice I received from these two tailors, and also whether a slight break is "acceptable" in this case. Thank you.
