Do you like to stack your jeans? I now you wear them with chucks, I do the same but I am switching to MMM Gats and CP Achilles, and I don't care to stack much. I am 5'11.75'' (yes the .75 means a lot to me) and I am considering having them hemmed to 32", thoughts? I am assuming that the inseam is taken from the fork (assuming I am using that term correctly), where the fabric connects with the other layer of denim making a thick seam. (right below le package).
I actually have only ever owned one pair of chucks - back in high school b/c everyone had some. Most of the time, I sport my denim with Adidas Sambas, Clark's DBs, or my Alden collection now.
At my grand total of six feet, I ask for 33.5 inseam - that's at least what I got my 400s hemmed to at Blue Owl. Gives me enough of a light stack or enough to cuff. I had also bought a N&F Sulphur Black WG from Jay, but left the inseam as is at 35.5 or whatever the standard was. Hugely long. Mad stax bro on 'dem - but due to the color they've been put away until fall. Will have to find a photo somewhere.
I'm told I have a longer torso, but my magic number seems to be 33.5. At 32, I worry you might be leaving yourself a bit short - and yes, I measure from the "fork."

one thing I would like is if it were in the 400 tapered fit
I chose the 702 b/c of wonderful experiences w/ 1) Momotaro 701 and 2) Pure Blue Japan xx007/9. Love me some indigo weave and weft. You put those two together and you get the 702. PERFECT! Watch this space for Blue Owl's 3rd collaboration w/ Momotaro, probably to be released in August (not sure). Word on the street is some sort of deep indigo in a slimmer more tapered cut. Might just be your ticket.
I also selected the 702 over the GI for the thigh allowance.

32" inseam is what i get when i don't want to double or do a monster cuff.
just make sure you get most of the shrinkage out before hemmingBiG
will usually add shrinkage allowance when hemming RAWs if you tell them you want the 32 to be post soak/wash
I'm partial to larger cuffs. I don't stack a ton either. I suspect I will more on the 400s because of the leg opening being so small in comparison to other selections I've had over the years.
