Pant sizes are confusing.

I have a pair of khakis that is really long since I bought it in a 3"+ size (to compensate for ultra-slim). I folded the legs inside at the bottom to a length I'm comfortable with, and measured it to be 37". What size (length) pants should I get? I'm a 29x29 (impossible to find that size) but these pants were a 32x32. Obviously neither set of numbers matches up with the actual length, what gives?

Thanks.

37" pant legs? Your probably nor measuring properly.

If you are 29x29 why don't you buy 30x30 or 30x32 or 30xunhemmed and get them altered properly?
Be sure the pants have a split waistband so you can get them taken in properly.

If you're measuring 37", you're probably measuring the outseam. Try measuring the inseam, from the "x" at the crotch seam down along the seam to the bottom of the cuff.

Should be close to 29".

Measuring the outseam was indeed my problem.
