The Best Places to Buy Long-Inseam Jeans According to an Actual Tall Person

Because your ankles deserve to be covered for once.

We’ve all done the ankle-boot-to-make-up-for-jean-length thing. No more! Photo: Imaxtree

I am 6′ tall. Not in a “men lying on Tinder when they’re actually 5’8” way but in a “my wingspan is 72 whole-ass-inches” way. In recent seasons, I’ve relished in the fact that cropped, flood-length pants have become trendy, since that means far less work and I can just buy regular pants without getting Urkel comments. But it’s almost 2020 and more and more companies are offering longer inseams for those of us whose ankles are always cold. In my never ending quest to stock my closet with a variety of 32″ inch inseam and longer jeans, below are some of the denim brands and styles I’ve found that get the job done.

Madewell

Madewell not only stocks tall jeans for those who are 5’9″-5’11” but it also stocks “taller” jeans for us 6′ and above folks. Styles include sleek black jeggings, distressed mid-rise jeans and classic vintage-y looking straight jeans. I can attest to the fact that they are, in fact, good for tall people because I am currently wearing a pair as I type this.

Tall 10″ High-Rise Roadtripper Jeggings: Button-Front Edition, $80, available here.

Good American

Not all of Khloe Kardashian and Emma Grede‘s Good American jeans come in long inseams, but the high-rise and stretch on the 35″-inseam skinnies make for a nice option if you’re not one for flares or bootcut. It also stocks the elusive size 15, and up to a 24.

ASOS

ASOS has a whole subsection of its site for tall people. Dresses! Shirts! Jackets! It’s a veritable wonderland for those of us with lengthy limbs. It usually stocks some more fun options as well, if you have enough blue and black jeans to survive well into the (impending) apocalypse.

Warp + Weft

Warp + Weft’s offerings veer more classic, but every style comes in straight and plus sizes and they’re all under $100 and sustainability-minded. Sometimes simple, especially when it comes to jeans, is best.

Gap

I mean, of course Gap has some great denim options for us leggy folks. That would be like being surprised when McDonald’s has cheeseburgers. Sizing goes from 24-35 and there are plenty of standard options, as well as some fun paint-splattered, leopard print and not-blue-or-black picks.

American Eagle is another retailer that offers both “long” (30″) and “X-long” (32″) jeans. There aren’t just tall styles; every jean is available in an extended length from flared denim to vintage-y looking mom jeans. They also stock a lot of styles in a specifically-curvy fit which offers a 13″ hip vs. waist difference, as opposed to the standard 10″.
