Crap. wrong thread sorry

I think there are a few reasons. First off, offering multiple inseam lengths is more complicated than offering just one. You then have to keep stock of "multiple items", despite them being pretty much the same jeans.
Stylistically, right now a lot of people are rocking the cuff, or stacking. Also, you can always hem, them to be shorter, whereas you can't lengthen jeans. I'm about 6'3", and as a result, can't wear anything shorter than a 34" inseam (and this is without being able to cuff or stack), so naturally a longer inseam can reach a wider audience. Furthermore, people like Jay from Blue Owl, or Kiya from SE offer stellar chain-stitching services, and will undoubtedly match the thread color perfectly, or even choose your own to make your jeans unique Sure you sacrifice the whole, buy em and go aspect, but its just simpler to offer a long inseam, I'd say. Then again, I'm not a jeans manufacturer, just a consumer.
who wears their jeans the same length as normal trousers? if you look at virtually every picture of people on the SWD side here wearing jeans they are either stacking or have a slight cuff.
you don't want your jeans to ride half-way up your calf when you sit down...not a good look. stick with a longer length for a slight stack.
you're sweating the small stuff right now man. when you order a quality pair of selvedge denim online most retailers offer a free hemming service...not a big deal.
Congrats!! That is a great accomplishment!
I completely agree on the sizing thing. I would gladly pay 3Sixteen an extra $25 to have them in a shorter length. I understand operations and inventory control pretty well so it would not be that hard to model out demand and plan accordingly. They could even take pre-orders into an upcoming production run if they were truly worried about the carrying costs of the inventory.
