Tailoring narrow pants

I recently purchased a suit on B&S, and the pants are a little narrower than I expected them to be at the bottom. The leg opening is about 7.4", and I am 5' 10" tall and wear a size 10US shoes. So, I am concerned that they look a little too slim, especially for a suit. Is there anything a tailor can do to widen a leg opening a little. They do have to be shortened a good bit, so maybe it will be a little wider up the leg at that point?

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

If there is material available, a tailor can widen a little. You will also have a little wider spacing once you take it up.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
