Choosing Your Inseam

Denim Inseam

Steps To Choosing Your Inseam:

  1. Shoe Type - first, determine the heel height you will most commonly wear with the jean. 
  2. Cuff or No Cuff - decide if you will be cuffing the denim.
    1. Bootcut jeans; can be cuffed when worn with a casual shoe or cowboy boot but then be let down when worn with a heel. 
    2. Straight Leg Jeans; can be worn with or without a cuff. If you choose to buy a longer length, the cuff can be adjusted when horseback.
    3. Straight crop and skinny jeans can be cuffed or not.
    4. Trouser Jeans do not easily cuff but, if a cuff is needed, it looks best with a flatter sole shoe rather than a heel.
    5. Flares do not cuff easily. Unfinished hems are easy to cut to ideal length if a little too long.
  3. Compare; to a jean length you currently have and like - by measuring a jean you own, you can more easily determine how long you want. Be sure to use a soft measuring tape for best results. See the image below for how to measure.
