Imo the pant width is fine, but I'd widen the cuffs and wear darker shoes.
@emptym

As in “widen the hem without widening the knee and give him a flared cut”?

I disagree. The trousers need more fullness from the thighs through the knees to the hem. That way it falls in a straight line and drapes properly. And more importantly, flatter the mans height. He’s very tall and can carry full cut trousers with amazing elegance and grace.

I keep pointing to this guy as a prime example of how a tall man should carry his dress

I hope you don't mind me disagreeing with you here. I am tall (6'5"), my trousers are slim (almost skinny), and I feel they drape perfectly. I do have a couple of "full" trousers but feel they are baggy (and they are almost the same as in the admittedly great example you posted), so much prefer the slim ones. It is all about getting the right cut. Slim or full comes down to preference, and cannot be objectively ranked.

Here is a proposition that I could get behind and is more in line with your view: between badly cut full vs slim trousers, fullness is preferable.

I beg to differ. Gentlemen, I keep saying trousers trousers trousers. They can rubbish and excellent coat ...

The man is very tall. He looks like he’s standing on “stilts”

Fuller trousers ....

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Feel free to beg. The pants drape nicely and there is no appearance of tightness. He’s a slim guy. We don’t all lift.
