Shorten Men’s cuffed trousers
Has anyone had success with shortening the hem of men’s cuffed trousers when the width is narrow? I find that for the back to be long enough and the front to have a nice-looking break, there has to be a significant slant in the hem. But what to do if there is a cuff? Has anyone made a cuff on a slant for narrow width hems?
I will only do cuffs that are straight from front to back. It is nearly impossible to do them on even a little slant. Narrow ones are definitely impossible. Take a look at ready to wear- they are all straight.
Thank you -- doing cuffs straight across was the conclusion that I came to, just wanted to see if anyone found a secret way to do it slanted. :) The tailor that we've sent things to always altered the cuffs straight across too. I guess the rumply break at the front is unavoidable if the back falls to an acceptable level, especially with narrower legs.
