It is. It's a nightmare buying clothes that fit me and don't look horrible. At least tailoring is cheap in Asia! Even with tailoring it took a while to grasp what works for me and what doesn't- with rise for example if the back is correct at 17" but the front is too high at say 14" then it impedes mobility and can make it hard raising my legs to walk up stairs! Problems also occur when hips and leg openings are wide but the taper is rapid to mid thigh.
