Like imagine you are wearing a loafer and the pants while you are standing up, doesn't cover it all so you can see your socks. Are those dress pants too short?
Someone told me he is not surprised that the length is not long enough because he is 6'1 and for Banana Republic, he wears 31 or 32 in length whereas i wear 30 in lenghth?
really depends on your length of your leg not your total height (although it is a somewhat a gauge too).
im 5'11 or 6' with shoes on and i usually wear a 31.5-32 inseam on most cotton or dress pants.
on jeans though,
32 inseam for boot cut
33 or more for any skinny/straight type jeans
