    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?


    really depends on your length of your leg not your total height (although it is a somewhat a gauge too).
    im 5'11 or 6' with shoes on and i usually wear a 31.5-32 inseam on most cotton or dress pants.
    on jeans though,
    32 inseam for boot cut
    33 or more for any skinny/straight type jeans

    I'm 6'2" and usually wear 32". That's no break, or even shorter than no-break if I'm wearing my pants on the high side. I like the look of slightly short pants with boots, and I'm wearing boots 80% of the time anyway. I also have a couple pairs with 33"-35" inseams, which break a little bit.

    this should be more of a poll on what sort of breaks people have on their pants. Full, half or no-break. Personally I go for no break, but you gotta rock your shit with confidence to pull it off.

    Inseam is the same thing as length correct?

    If you can see your socks when you sit down, your jeans are too short.

    Yeah, it's the length of the leg measured from the crotch seam.

    I'm 5'10" and wear a 31" inseam in dress pants and a 32" inseam in jeans.

    6'1" and fat.

    Around a 32" but the sodding manufacturers seem to use a variety of dodgy tape measures.

    The real joke is a picture of you wearing jeans.

    I'm 5'9, and wear a 30" inseam on most pants. It usually leaves a medium break. I'd probably be around a 29" if I wanted no/minimum break.

    Of course, this very much depends on the pants. If your waist is a bit loose, your pants will sag and can easily let the legs dip another inch or more lower.
