I've heard that if you get them wet just from about the knee down and do some tugging, you can lengthen them a bit... may be worth a try if everything else fits fine. Saw your post in the B/S, and you may be able to save yourself an exchange. I can't confirm that though from personal experience. Thanks for the tip. They fit great everywhere else but the length...so I might give that a try if I don't get a response to the sell/trade (which I would rather do, despite the hassle, to get a 36).
