Trousers advice

I'm looking for suggestions or direction towards a pant manufacturer who leaves room in the seat/thigh but tapers to a reasonably narrow ankle.

At a 32/33, I need a pretty generous seat area (I'm a cyclist so my glutes and quads are a bit overdeveloped) but I like a trim ankle.

The older Epaulet Walts were fantastic but the new stuff is too trim and I can't get my legs in. Obviously, I can go for a relaxed fit with most companies but that leaves me with floppy ankles.

I would be wearing these either with cuffs or without.

Thanks!

Having trousers tapered from the knee down by a tailor is very simple. Your best bet is buy what fits on top and get them altered.

At a 32/33, looks like you have pretty trim athletic lower proportions. If you've got the cyclist quads and thinner calves, the "french cuff" or any very tapered ankle may look kind of funny if you want to the pants for formal workwear. Rule of thumb is to be as trim as possible but straight leg all the way through (cuff or no cuff). Try suitsupply, they're pretty great for higher quality dress trousers.
