    Ok when I look online for some jeans they never say what their length? They only way what the waist is. Other jeans are never in my size. They are always 32x32 or more. I wear 32x30.

    I can never seem to find nice jeans in my size. They are all a size too big. Do you think I'm going to have to buy a 32x32 and hem them? If I do that I really don't think their going to look as good as if they were authentic. I'm pretty sure plenty of other people have this problem because I'm a pretty normal body type.

    Thanks for your help!

    Levi's make 30 inch inseams. Also, if you get raw denim, a competent tailor could give you a nice hem using similar thread which will match the original. Or, you could just get the 32s and go with a cuff.

    Diesel also make 30 inch inseams, for what it's worth, and I believe Rag & Bone do as well.

    I have the same inseam and issue; some of my jeans I cuff, others I get hemmed. It's not such a big deal IMO, although I echo Parker, you do have to find a competent tailor; I have had problems with incompetent ones.

    Most any tailor can hem the jeans and re-attach the original hem for about $15.
