Jeans longer than chinos?

Hello

Just a quick question.. I'm taking my jeans in to get them slightly altered (levis 501, too baggy) and it got me thinking... should jeans typically be slightly longer than chinos?

IMO it looks OK for chinos to ride up and reveal a fair bit of sock when you sit down, so you can wear them with no break. However, the rideup + sock reveal seems to look odder with jeans. But, I usually wear jeans with boots.

Thoughts?

Thanks
