To answer your weird and pointless question, when I take a pair of pants in to my tailor I tell her I want the hem to be 7.75" which she is free to either keep as 7.75" or delve into the extremely complex mathematical equivalent by simply multiplying by 2.

the issue which spawned his question was the op's statement that his leg opening was one inch too wide.

Whether we are talking about the flat across measurement or the actual circumference makes a big different when talking about how many inches too big it is.

Saying you want a 7.75 inch leg opening is obviously interpreted as the flat across measurement, but if you told your tailor to remove one inch, it is important to be on the same page about whether that inch will be taken from the circumference of the flat measurement.


Next time, give the question some thought before making an ass of yourself.

Exactly. The question was aimed at determining if there was a standard version most people used, because yes I understand both methods "work".

Good way to make sure your coat is long enough, that.

His question made sense to me. Basically is it 1" off of 9", so 2" off 18". or is it 1" off of 18", so .5" off of 9" also great thread ...beaten. fuck. but way to go calling his question "weird and pointless" when your answer was the real pointless one.

There is a flaw in this yarn. You must have had some idea when you planned to recover the pairs that you were not wearing. You could simply have exchanged it then.
