Wow, really? So they could make opening narrower? How does that work?You can taper the legs to have a smaller opening
You'll need to decide how much you want to narrow, then they can open the side seams up the legs a ways and resew at that narrower width.Wow, really? So they could make opening narrower? How does that work?
What do I say exactly? I usually just go to the cleaners, they have someone who does altering
I gotta find my own tailor then.You'll need to decide how much you want to narrow, then they can open the side seams up the legs a ways and resew at that narrower width.
I can't guarantee a dry cleaner's going to have the skills, though it's not a wild tailoring request. You may have to go to a proper tailor, but it's worth an ask if you trust them. If they don't understand a request to taper leg openings, then it's definitely worth checking with a tailor.
That's said, the leg openings look proportional to the rest of the pants.
They look like a more traditional cut currently. If you plan to wear them casually (as in pic), I'd probably taper them to what the leg opening is when they are unhemmed at their 34" length. That might be an inch or so?
Just don't get too crazy, they'll look odd and make your torso look larger if you go too narrow.
