    DID it ruin them. Why could you not have just checked?

    If the 34 length caused the jeans to bunch up on or above your shoes and the 32 length does not then the knee area might appear lower with the 32 length than it did with the 34 length.

    I get what your saying"”

    there is still a little bunch up with the 32" (probably I'm really like a 30"). Just assume that Regular Ralf cut was to have the narrowest width of the jean at the knee... these now have the narrowest part just under the knee cap... still looks ok to me, just wonderin if there was a standard rule about this topic. thnks.

    I had my 34" RRDG hemmed to a 31.5" and they are just fine. Dont worry about it.

    sometimes I like to buy a jean long and hem off the ends to avoid a tight taper or an embarassing bootcut. If you're really a 30 and you've got 2 extra inches on your inseam after hemming, then stop hemming and hawwing about your jeans. just kidding.

    Normally, hemming 2" is not a problem in the look and fit. However, you might want in the future to buy a store that can special order or has other stores to check for your exact size.
