    I tried on a pair of Paper Denim & Cloth GTOs yesterday.  I liked the fit through the seat and thighs, but the length seemed ideal for someone who is 6'1".  I am 5'10".  Do the PDC mavens recommend wearing the jeans as is, getting them hemmed, or looking at another brand entirely?  Thanks in advance.

    I think the inseams are all 34" regardless of the waist size. I just got a pair in 33" and had a tailor take about an inch out of the length and then stitch the original hem back on the bottom. Cost about $8.

    I'm 5'11" and get them hemmed, not the original hem, which seems a little affectd to me, I usually asked for same color thread and reinforcements at the hem. All PDC's are supposed to be 34" inseam, but actually vary by up to +/- 1 inch, i.e. from 33 to 34 inseam, depending on the specific pair. The company seems to never have fixed this inconsistency problem, which has been endemic since the beginning. Wierd.

    if by affected you mean it sort of sits on top of the bottom of the jean than I agree 100%.

    i guess this is a problem with any bootcut jean )=
