    Gentlemen, I'm attempting the short/no break. Is this this too far?

    Excellent. Thanks for the replies gents. Still feels a little weird with so much sock showing while walking.

    Your right foot appears not to be flat on the ground, that will throw them. Start again with both feet firmly on the ground and with proper shoes.

    Why is your right heel raised?

    Assuming that stance is not throwing out the fall, length is good.

    The narrower the width of the opening at ankle the more important that the pants not be too long and puddle. Your break as shown is more than a "shiver" on the top of the shoe (which can look silly if the pants crease behind the knee and shorten during the day), but not excessive. Leaving aside whether an opening that narrow is desirable, the break is a perfectly acceptable middle break.

    My right foot is slightly raised as I had to get a little bit of a lean going in order to get a halfway decent picture. I have to go to my tailor today anyways so I might hash a few things out today.

    No. That's not what I consider "no break" either. It looks fine.
