Thanks for the feedback. The original issue was the rise; there were some "moose knuckles" and the pants also felt like a wedgie.Hard to advise on this pair since they are altered by your tailor. Don't know what issues were on the original, unaltered fit and what may be caused by the alterations.
Adjustments on this pair are more about the way the pattern is shaped and not something you can adjust by changing measurements.
The length should be longer in the back than the front. Proper to make the back 1 or 1.25" longer than the front. There is no angle on the hem, doesn't look right.
Add 3/4" to the front and 2.5" to the back. Right leg needs more than this, it's shorter than the left. If you make the bottom circumference wider you need to make the trouser longer to balance the look.
The back pockets opening up are caused by the sewing/construction technique. Looks like these pockets were made by a machine and the pipes are too tight. If you don't use the back pockets, don't get back pockets. It's a cleaner look.
Is this custom or MTM? Discussing alterations; you will have more/better options if you are working with a tailor than a MTM firm.Getting ready to do another remote commission as we work on dialing in my details. I know there are some things I see, there are some things my tailor sees but curious what you all see as we work on tweaks.
Apologies for the mediocre pictures - I tried to play around with lighting settings to get rid of some of the shadows/dark spots.

This happens with some regular/forward pleat patterns. Forward pleats are difficult to fit well. The way this maker creates the pattern may not be right for you. It's all about the pattern and the drape here is something you cannot change without changing the pattern.New made to measure lambs wool trousers. The left leg is twisted about 45 degrees counter clockwise and the right about 30 degrees clockwise. The left leg is so bad that the inseam is almost on my shin. Any advice?

Yes, it's a sleeve pitch issue. Wrinkles in front like this means the sleeve is pitched to the back and needs to rotate the sleeve head back to move the sleeve forward.Can someone please tell me if the collapsing that I am experiencing along the front of both biceps is something that can be fixed by a tailor or if I would be better off buying a different jacket? Is it caused by the pitch of the jacket sleeves? I apologize about the mirror taken photos.
Thank you for the quick response! Is this an easily addressable issue or is it major surgery? This is a floating canvas jacket. Not sure if that makes a difference.Yes, it's a sleeve pitch issue.

Do the opposite for wrinkles on the back of the sleeve.
First difficulty doing this alteration is finding someone who understands what needs to be done and knows how to set sleeves. Sleeves are more difficult than other parts of making a jacket. Sleeves will be removed and put on again in the new position. 3-4 hours of work for a good tailor.Thank you for the quick response! Is this an easily addressable issue or is it major surgery?
