Total inseam in inches minus 13 = Lower leg

Knee minus hem in inches = Taper

Taper/Lower Leg = Taper per inch (TPI)

Number of inches you want to shorten inseam by multiplied by TPI equals the amount the hem will be larger than original hem

As always, thank you for these bits of knowledge.  Whenever friends/acquaintances ask me about denim one of the first things I tell them is to go to the resource page on the Iron Heart forums.
