    Yeah, they're rolled up... The same goes for a lot of my pics. The 30's are often too short, and 32's are virtually always too long. So I usually buy 32's and roll them up. Someday I'll get them hemmed. I've just been lazy about it. I know what you mean, though.


    That being said, I don't mind rolling up chinos with boat shoes, and I'd even roll them up one more time if I weren't at work... And it's hard to tell from the pics, but these aren't really chinos in the traditional sense. They have patch pockets with buttoned flaps in the back, and they're not twill - they're MUCH softer than that.


    I appreciate the honesty, though. It's a valid observation!

    Damn, I have the same 30/32 problem, it is really frustrating. Nice thing is getting a pair of pants hemmed a little shorter is about the cheapest tailoring you can get done

    Yeah, it's not the cost of hemming them that's stopepd me. It's my being too lazy to just go down there and get it done. :-( I guess I really should if people are noticing , though...

    I have the 30/32 problem as well. My true inseam is like... 30.5. Depending on the maker and the specific garment, though, I can generally get away with a 30. I used to wear all 32s, especially in my "pre-style" days when I wore mostly baggier pants. Tapered pants that are slightly too short can look ok, but loose-fit pants that are slightly too short just look awful.


    Plus there's the added factor of whether a 30 inseam will shrink too much or a 32 inseam won't shrink enough. I have a pair of jeans I need to get hemmed because I thought they would shrink quite a bit and they didn't shrink at all.

    I like the look Alan. I'm a sucker for plaid ties. It may just be the camera angle, but it looks to me that the rolled pant leg may look a little less "off" if the pants were a bit more tapered below the knee.

    I think you're probably on to something there, Greg.


    ... and I just noticed I flip flopped the description on my shirt and tie. Obviously not wearing a pinpoint button down tie (though they're both Roundtree & York). :-P
