How much fuller the trouser leg can be widened depends on how much extra material is on the inside of the trouser leg seams (seam allowance or inlay). Many OTR trousers have 0.5-1" of seam allowance at most in the leg.Any good tailor worth his salt can recut the trouser legs and make them fuller. I’m muscular built. Have 17” calves and my tailor recuts all my trousers or they would stick to my OTC socks! Wouldn’t that look silly!
