dear all

I have spent considerable time and effort for few iterations of my pant length... would like to seek your views before i take the plunge and make an universal change to all my pants.

Please let me know which you like/ looks better FOR ME/ which is politically correct etc...

thanks.

The shorter break is obviously better.

To my eye, I just think the pants should be a bit slimmer. I think that's the piece you're missing.

The whole little/no break in the pants only looks good if the leg on the pant is slim. These pants your wearing will just float around your ankles if they were hemmed too short. For these pants, I'd go for something with a slight break like the second pic... maybe a little less break though.

The "short" pic is perfect.

I second this. The larger the leg opening, the more break needed.

Wassup with the super high back rise with sagging butts and very full baggy legs? It looks very very bad from the side IMO. As if you are wearing an hybrid of tango dancing pants and super baggy jeans.

Just a hair longer than the "short" pics. the larger break just looks sloppy.

I like the short ones. While wearing the pants will come downwards a quarter of an inch and then it will be perfect (length).
