Whitney writes: "Coming in at almost 6'2", I have long legs - 36 or 37 inch inseam long legs. You'd think that I would be able to buy jeans labeled "long inseam", but for some reason retailers seem to think that "long" means 33 inches. While I can pull off wearing these "long" jeans with tall boots, I would love to be able to wear a pair without boots and have them be the right length and fit on me. If you could help a girl out, I would be so, so, so appreciative! Cheers!"
As a 6" lady myself, I feel your pain. Tracking down those longer inseam jeans can be a Mission: Impossible scenario, but the alternative of looking constantly ready for a flood makes the effort worth it. Hopefully my trials and tribulations can pay off for you, in the form of this list of some of my tall-lady denim favorites, with both high-quality designer brands and some blissfully long cheap-and-cute options as well.
1) Lucky Jeans Sweet N Low Boot Cut ($99)
2) Mavi Jeans Molly ($98)
3) Alloy Double Button Skinny Jean ($30)
4) Banana Republic Curvy Dark Wash Bootcut ($90)
5) Ann Taylor Tall Modern Skinny Jeans ($89)
6) American Eagle Hi-Rise Skinny Jean ($35)
