Anyone else out there 5 foot 10 give or take? How long of an inseam to you buy especially with jeans? I have always wore boots and ususally bought my pants and jeans a bit longer, but lately it seems like they are way too long.
Just curious what other guys my height wear. Thanks for the help. Aug 9, 2. I'm 5'10" bang on. Typically, I'm a 'regular', though in terms of actual measurements, I've had anything from a 29" to a 33" inside leg, all depending on how the trousers are cut. My high-waisted, Oxford bags vintage repro are about 29", and spot on - not too short at all, but equally not too long important, with that amount of material!
In a pair of modern trews, I can be anywhere between 31" and 32". It varies, though I do find that often as not the higher the rise in the trousers, the lower my inside leg measurement is likely to be. Not sure I'd go by my measurements in your place, though - if you observe enough folks you'll see quite a lot of variance in the proportions of men of the same overall height - some guys have longer legs and a shorter torso and vice versa.
Aug 9, 3. I agree with Edward. The proportion of leg length to torso length that combines to make up a 5' 10" man can vary enormously from person to person.
Much better to just go to a jeans store and try on several pair until you find what you like. BTW, welcome to the Lounge. Aug 9, 4. First time I visited a menswear store in the US I couldn't believe it; "You can actually select trousers by inseam as well!!??!! Down here, everything, off the rack included, is made for basketballers. Jeans come in one length only - loooong. I have a 31 inseam and its not uncommon to have inches of discarded trouser leg after alterations.
If you by a suit or casual, you must factor leg length alterations into the cost and time. Nothing looks more ridiculous than slightly faded off the rack blue jeans that have to be freshly altered. Aug 9, 5.
Aug 9, 6. It's been a while since I have had my measurements taken so I don't recall what the tailor came up with. My mom said I was "long in the body" so my torso is a little longer than average.
This comes into play on amusement park rides where the retaining device is the hinged and cushioned pipe style that swings down to go over ones shoulders.
I am taller than most that way and these tend to crush me into a hunchback position for the length of the ride, not comfy so I tend to pass on "rides" these days. Aug 16, 7.
