really? so this means if i get the 30 length it will be about 33? eek~ does it fit okay everywhere else?

All the Troulegs I've had have run 1-2 inches longer than the stated inseam..

Troulegs are long... NEVER seen a Trouleg run short... 30L is never 30"

I know, but 33? Most of my troulegs measure about 31 to 31.5 which is perfect for me.

Trouleg 8AA 27x30.... 31" when measured straight from crotch to the front part of the leg opening and about 32" when measured along the seam IIRC

bio, could you get the inseam measurement of the 8it for me? thanks man.
post #57 of 420
Yes, all troulegs run long. As said, usually about 1.5 inches long. However, in my experience, 8IT runs extra long. Both pairs I had were 3 inches longer. Also, 8IT are at least a waist size too big as well. I usually wear 31x32 in trouleg and i think my 8IT size should be 30x30 (they barely stretch as well). I think these issues are what Nervous was alluding to.
post #58 of 420
^ Yup. I found the waist and hips ran rather loose while the thighs were fairly tts, and of course the insanely long inseam. I still wish I had bought a w28 and stretched the thighs out a bit. Hopefully they're being reissued and those problems have been addressed

Well, I got my 32x34 Trouleg 8AAs hemmed from 35" to 33" and I'm starting to regret going so "short." The length seems ok, they just look sorta... funny.

i think they look fine and most of the trumpet leg opening is still intact?

I think they look good.

I think they're fine now. My guess is that the stiffness of the leg opening was throwing me off. They've relaxed a little bit and seem fine.

They're not as trumpet as they should be thanks to the hem job, but they're still "Trouleggy" in the last few inches.

They look fine my friend
post #64 of 420
so maybe i can cop the 27x32 8aa from outlet, hem a couple inchs off and it'd still look okay?

I'm ok with mine. Went from 35" to 33.25" - Result not perfect but good enough in my estimation.
post #66 of 420
32L could be running about 34/35 inches. depending on what you do/how much you take off... it might just be one step away from Safado.

Out of interest, did you get a new hem made or was the original one kept/reattached?
post #70 of 420
usually on darker pairs with no original distressing you do away with the old hem and just make a new one. they look identical so there's no point keeping the original hem if it's not distressed.

^ Yep. Didn't do "original hem." No point with 8aa.
post #72 of 420
sucks to be short

Not trying to rub it in, but my trouleg 8AA are a perfect length. Glad I saved them from getting butchered.
