I don’t really get the folded pant leg look. Looks like they are coping with a flood.

It’s because they make jeans too long for women. Believe it or not, a petite pair of jeans now has an inseam of 30 inches.

Perhaps they’re trying to sell higher heels for chicks?

Oh! I hate that. I mean, I have a 27” inseam and can just barely get away with a 28” inseam. It’s hard to find great fitting pants with that short of an inseam. I don’t understand why clothing designers always use such long-legged, no butt, skinny waisted, straight-hipped women to be their fit models. My legs are so short, I can sometimes get away with capris being ankle length pants on me. LOL! And seriously? Higher heels for women?! Not unless you want your woman to have spinal and feet problems later on in her life. I think 3” is the highest a woman should go and still be able to look classy. Anything higher than that is just trashy.
p.s. – Not hating on the tall and skinny women, I’m just saying that there should be a variety of fit models.

I recently bought a pair of Joe’s jeans. Their petite fit still has a 30” inseam, which is long for me (28), but with heels it looks good. But I think the brand caters well to real women. May be worth checking out.

Thanks, MaryJane! 30” inseams are way too long for me. I would have to hem them. But if the waist and hips area fit well as you say, then I’d definitely like to try a pair on. What stores can you find Joe’s jeans in? Are they reasonably priced as well?

Zolita has them. But you may have to call to see if they carry petite. They are fairly pricey – $120-180. But well worth the money! http://www.chictopia.com/user/blog/Zolita

I bought mine at Bloomingdales. They cost $160. I like the way it fits around my hip. Not too loose, like most other jeans.
I just noticed this forum is FROM men to women. haha… I guess all talk ends up being girl talk!

Women’s jeans aren’t like men’s. With men you get the waist size and the inseam. With women it’s just the inseam or just a size like 0, 2,6 or whatever. I have long legs but no hips so I usually have to get my waist taken in. Lame.

Supposedly, I’m an average sized girl, but every pair of pants I get are great in the waist, and a bit too long or too short in the legs!
Why do they not make clothes for average people? Why must I be skinny and tall or chunky and short? Can I maybe be just “average”?
That said, most of my pants are actually too short for me, so I never wear the flood look. I would say that it’s more appealing than showing your socks, though. I HATE THAT

Im a little short so almost all of my jeans are a little too long. And if you get jeans tailored you have to be suuuper careful because its so easy to mess a good pair of jeans up with a bad/not that good tailor.

I used to just let my jeans drag on the ground (I’m 5’2”). But I’ve started wearing skinny jeans that bunch up at the ankles. No more dragging denim for me! It can look cool witht the right look but I personally think its kind of icky now.

I like buying long-legged jeans and pants to go over my higher-heeled shoes. I’m a bit thick-legged so my pants are usually longer than my stubby legs (sigh). The rest I just have them cut and seamed.

I love ones that are a lil longer because they look so good when they’re scrunched at the bottom.

I like my skinny jeans slightly scrunched at the bottom. I have a 28” inseam but most petite ranges have 29” inseam.
Though if I’m buying any other type of jeans I buy the 28” inseam ones from New Look. They’re the only shop that I know of that sell 28” (apart from Levi’s but it’s rare that I’ll actually find a pair)

I don’t understand any of the complains offered. Why aren’t you just hemming your jeans? Why don’t you simply make your clothing fit your body?

since i am short (around 5’4), jeans are always too long for me
so i always take it to a tailor to make it shorter

It isn’t so bad with skinny jeans, but boy fit jeans are tragic for often being too long. I know they’re supposed to be big, but nobody needs an excess 3” on the leg.

“I don’t understand any of the complains offered. Why aren’t you just hemming your jeans? Why don’t you simply make your clothing fit your body?”


Tailoring is ok for the occasional item, but for people that are petite or of a more unusual figure, it’s pretty pricey to buy all the jeans and other trousers etc. you want and then have them tailored too. Not everyone has enough money for all of that. I know I don’t, and I would rather just scrunch my jeans up a bit than pay out an extra £10 or so in tailoring for each pair of jeans that I own.

Do you really need a million pair of jeans? I would take two pairs that fit me over thirty that don’t any day of the week.

Tailoring doesn’t have to be expensive, and most nice denim are made longer with the expectation that you’ll go get them fitted to your body. For you NY kids, Uniqlo has a free tailoring service for all their jeans. I go to this cheapo laundromat and get them done for $8.
And yeah I agree geekonchic, while I did have a gazillion pairs of jeans in high school, I’ve found that I never got around to wearing all of them to justify even their super-cheap price tag. Now I have three solid well-fitting pairs and am really getting my money’s worth out of them.

Shorts shrink and end up showing my ankles, but regular length jeans are too long. I gave up on bootcut and flare jeans a while ago.

That’s why you wash them first and then get them tailored.

Laziness.
It’s really really simple to take jeans up, maybe 20 mins in front of the TV :P
