almost all Japanese repro straight legs do not taper from the thigh to the bottom (although some do). they taper from the thigh and then they go straight down from the knee down. when tall people wear straight legs, the taper ends at the knee where it's supposed to end, on shorter people, the taper ends below the knee, making is look like a full length taper.
i've seen several japanese repro straight legs that look much better on taller people, the pure blue AI-001 being one of them.
