Yes - I believe that there is slightly too much taper but not sure what, if any, my options are at this point. Is there a way to add weight to the hem? (could be a stupid question)Are you wearing socks? Do you think there may be too much taper?
It's really hard to know without seeing a pic.
Cuffs will typically add some weight but if the cuffs are plain it’s doubtful there is enough fabric. If there’s too much taper, nothing short of an anvil will work.
you could consult an alterations tailor to see if there’s any excess capacity to let the legs out a bit.
Thank you! Great heads up, I'l see what the tailor saysAgree, if the diameter of the lower leg is too small for the fabric to hang cleanly without catching on your calf then the fabric will bunch. See if there is enough fabric in the seam to let the leg out a bit, but in RTW trousers there usually isn’t much. If the diameter is adequate but you want more weight, you could try asking a tailor to add some hem tape to the bottom of the leg.
