Stack. I'm 5'9" and wear 34L, meaning I get 2-3 breaks. I don't think having a stack the size of jesus is a beneficial thing, but showing off your socks whenever you sit down is definitely not steezy. No need for a 5'2" guy to seek out a 40" inseam, but there is also no reason for a 5'9" guy to wear a 32" (which would be my "no break" inseam while wearing boots) And it is kind of true about girl jeans, I know quite a few girls who are about the same size as me (as in, 5'7-5'10" and probably between 120-130lbs) who complain about not being able to find jeans in their size. I keep telling them that they need to hit up some Naked and Famous or Nudie but they are all afraid of spending that much on jeans, especially dry ones. *sigh* I fight the good fight, even though I lose.
