    I am 5' 7''.

    When I go look at designer jeans so often I would love the fabric and design, even the crotch fit, but these would be way too long and come in that one length only. If it's something like 32 at the seam then I can alter it, but most of these come in at least 34 so that they are not even suitable for alteration, because where the knee is supposed to be goes all the way down to my ankles.

    Really good fit I found to be Lucky (they have "Short"), Blue Cult, Ben Sherman, and Guess. Seven For All Mankind is alterable. I love the design of Antik but it's just ridiculously long. Do they only make these designer jeans for tall people? If you can suggest some good designer jeans not made exclusively for tall dudes I would really appreciate it.

    Buy raw denim instead of pre-faded stuff, and just get it hemmed

    I don't like to pay over $200. And for designer apparel never at the full price tag.

    Others here might have a better suggestion. I'd say get some APC new standards or Nudies like the average joe. Something that's not relaxed or boot cut

    And just get them hemmed or have crazy stacks :o


    APC's are around $110 with a coupon

    i know how you feel and am faced with the same problem. Some brands that I've found to work for me were california vintage, diesel (they sell 32 inseams, even 30's but usually only in europe), seal kay jeans, and any raw denim jeans that you can get ahold of.

    Also energie, and Johan (JL's line of jean)

    I'm 5'9 with a 32 inseam in my slim jims and they come down just to the top of my ankle, so I pull them down a tiny bit. I think they would work fine for you :dunno:

    stacks -> see bottom of jeans
    an alternative to cuffing or hemming, usually a method applied to a skinnier cut
