Good point, longer legs don't always equal height, it definitely comes down to the individual and their body proportions. Perhaps it would've been more aptly titled Jeans with Longer Inseams!
R&R used to be a big one, a few of my friends used to swear by them, but I can't speak to their Kohl's styles. I do think brands vary from style to style so much, that it is hard to find consistency. I don't have too much experience with Alice + Olivia's pants, so thanks for the tip!
