    hi,

    apologies if this has been asked before.

    I was wondering what the taller chaps would recommend for their raw denim. I know most of them seem to have an inside leg measurement of 36 but I have seen shrinkage amounts varying from 2 to 4 in which would then make them too short.

    I don't mind paying money for decent jeans but don't want them to bee too short after one wash and then be useless

    really would appreciate any advice

    cheers

    tons of raw denim brands use a 35"+ inseam, and if the denim is sanforized it will generally shrink less than an inch in length.

    edit: N&F might work for you. Weird Guy has a 35" inseam, Skinny Guy is 37.5", almost everything (apart from a few collabs) is sanforized.
