Am I missing something.. or doing something wrong.. because everytime I try on pants/jeans with a 29 or 30 inseam they're still FAR too long and hang way past my foot. I get them hemmed to fit. Is this what other people do?

I'm not a gang banger or anything.. I wear them around my waist (not around the belly button though or on my stomach)

But we're talking 25 maybe 26 inch inseam here.. Is it just because I'm not wearing them around my stomach?
Or just because I'm short?

could be both and it all depdns on what you think is too much. you like your hems to fall right on your shoe? or not at all?

Let me ask this: Instead of getting them hemmed freakishly short (or at all), should I just roll them up?

You should hem them to look right if you like that better than cuffing.

Maybe you should post a pic so we see what you mean?
