    I am 6'1 and I have always wore a 34 inseam. I was told recently by somebody in the fashion industry that that was too long for my height and that I should be wearing a 32". Is there a table with this kind of info on the internet?


    What is your height compared to your inseam?

    Me - 6'1", 34

    I'm 5'5" and have no problem wearing 34" inseams. It just depends on the type of pants you're wearing.

    Well obviously it depends on how tall your legs are...someone may have a freakishly long / short torso.

    Also, some stuff looks good stacked, some doesnt

    EDIT: but to make a blanket statement that "oh, you're 6'1''? you should wear 32'' inseam" is profoundly dumb

    6'1" and 32", although I do 30" pretty often. Either I have really short legs or you people are nuts.

    6'2" (hope I made the conversion well, that would be 188 cm) and 33" seems to be perfect.

    6'1" and 32". 34" is way long. I get stacking with 32" if the leg opening is slim. 34" and bootcut would go under my shoes and ruin the jeans. They are probably nuts [​IMG]

    5'11'' and 32 or 30. 31 is probably perfect.

    I go 32" on all pants and 32" on all bootcuts. I have a couple 30s and a couple 32s in regular, straight leg jeans. 31" is probably about right, but I've always been confused with people I know are my height or shorter than me buying like 34"-36" jeans in this subforum.

    What is your height compared to your inseam?

    No offense to you at all. But, whoever told you that is an idiot. Your inseam is what it is. If you have a 34" and wear a 32" inseam pants you'll look like Jethro Bodine.

    BTW I'm 5' 9" and have a 32.5" inseam. Proportionatley I have long legs. My son is 5' 10" with a 29" inseam proportionatley very short legs. Neither one of us can do anything about it.

    I've never bought anything "no-break" so I have no idea.
