    I'm 5'8 and 162 lbs or so and always wear 32/30 with jeans. I tried on some Banana Republic dress pants in 32/30 but for some reason, they don't seem to cover my loafer that i was wearing. Like imagine you are wearing a loafer and the pants while you are standing up, doesn't cover it all so you can see your socks. Are those dress pants too short?

    Someone told me he is not surprised that the length is not long enough because he is 6'1 and for Banana Republic, he wears 31 or 32 in length whereas i wear 30 in lenghth?

    For slacks you might see them purposefully shortening the inseam for styling purposes. Some people prefer this in order to more visibly show their socks and shoes.

    anyway,

    5'8" height

    29" inseam with no break (personal preference with slacks)
    30" inseam with slight break atop shoe
    32" to stack

    Height: 5'7
    Inseam: 30

    I do have a pair of like 34 inseams that I stack with because I'm too lazy (and don't trust my tailor) to get them hemmed.

    Maybe the rise on the dress pants was lower? Remember inseam isn't from the top of the pants but from the bottom of the crotch. Anyway 6'1", I usually wear a 34 but its a tad long.

    I'm somewhere between 5'9'' and 6' and I buy 32" inseam, although it's a little long; 31" would probably be better.

    6'1", 34

    everyone has different torso/leg proportions though and someone taller could have short legs.

    also, marked inseam lengths are rarely accurate with jeans ime.

    good luck to you OP!
