    Mmmmmm...... pajama jeans..... *droooool*


    LOL! since I have such a long inside leg, I actually wear boyfriend jeans all the time.... real boyfriend jeans! LOL Well, I did, I've ended up giving them (back?) to MrN since they're so big on me now. Thanks for the help! The ones I've seen here have been cropped & since my ankles still are not fit to be seen in summer, I just didn't go there.... maybe next summer?

    ^A co-worker has a pair of pajama jeans! She loves them.

    that said, i've never liked the fit of gap jeans. their pants in general i think are just blocky, unflattering cuts that just don't work, at least on me. and i just don't like the fabrics or style.
    never tried old navy jeans before.
    They don't work on me either, and neither do Old Navy jeans or pants.

    Real boyfriend jeans ftw!
    I don't like tight clothes anyway, and they look great with shirts that I also stole from him.
    I should try that sexy look sometimes.

    Buying jeans is a nightmare for me. Being 5'10, with a 34" inseam, I just want jeans that don't look like fucking highwater, Urkel jeans, and that don't cost over $100.

    I'm currently avoiding wearing the "Jeans by Otis Spunkmeyer" brand that are in my closet. I gained weight, so all of them give me serious muffin top.

    I'm 5'6", but freakishly disproportionate with a 33" inseam. I feel your pain.

    About vanity sizing. I have bought a lot of pants at dress barn lately, cuz I'm a 4 there, when normally I'm a 6. Makes you feel like a rock star.

    Ooh! Long leg jeans with a long life? Target, Gap are ok, also Marie Grey (???) are super long (36?), great for heels ladies (not that I wear those very often)! And (seriously) I get a long on mine from eBay because I don't want high fashion items, so last season is fine for me.

    Me, too, which makes me wonder if it's because we're all just short as hell in this state.

    Thanks for the notice! I'll have a look, but I bought a few pairs of jeans (see "I bought" thread) from Marks & Spencer (UK store) and they're really great.... I'm a bit mean sometimes so I will look & but when I've gone down another size or 2! (When!!!)

    I'm 5'1" (barely) and have a little over a 30" inseam. Which is long for a shorty. As a result, I can't wear short or petite lengths. I always have to get regular length and hem!!

    I am 5'8" and most slacks are way too long when in my true size or the vanity size that fits these days. It's as if the pants are made for the runway women who have short trunks and long legs, after the runway when the pants get into stores, or with the expectation that every woman will wear heels 3" or higher with a slack or a jean. I don't wear heels with jeans (too tomboy) and seldom with slacks unless it's a boot. My legs aren't overly short, they just aren't long enough to fit the pant legs of today. Classics from yesrs ago still work. Grew up wearing heels with dresses and skirt suits, and always was too tomboy for heels with slacks. So that's an issue for me, whether it's 6, 8, 10 or some 12s (that's how varied vanity sizing is); pant leg is the same. Levi women's 509s always fit. They do stretch and lead to saggy but and crotch, though, like mentioned unthread about non 100% cotton jeans.
