Jean help for a short girl

Hiya,

I'm looking for manufactuers of quality jeans that come in shorter lengths. I'm about 5'2 and usually am a 30-31 in length.

Unfortunately, most premium denim manufacturers make jeans in lengths like 34-36. Yes, you can hem them, which can risk losing the flare, making a faded knee look like a faded shin, or turn skinny jeans into bootcuts.

What I'm really looking for is a nice pair of skinny jeans that will be the appropriate length for me that I don't have to hem. Any ideas?

Hey don't know of any manufactuer specifically but Dutil has stacks of jeans from many different brands. Being a denim specific store they know a lot about fitting people with good jeans.

Abercrombie & Fitch



I am not sure what the inseam measurement is of the short ones is BUT you'll probably only have to hem them a few inches. (I have a few pairs of the S and they're too long for me, but they're definitely the shorts one I have ever purchased.)

I want to try to find something local in Vancouver where I can try them on...any ideas?

I've purchased jeans from Banana Republic in their petites section that are perfect length, but their stock is pretty inconsistent.

Galaxie, what does OTW carry?

You'll be happier finding the perfect pair of jeans with the right color/price/distressing/rhinestones and hemming them. If you limit yourself to precut sizes (half of which will be hemmed from a different length anyways), it will be much harder to find a pair. Realistically the flare on skinnys starts about 15" up (at the knee) and only tapers down an additional inch by the cuff. So chopping 2 to 4 inches won't change the shape. You might have an extra (4/15)" on the cuff to stuff into your boots. That's a quarter inch max!

Myra, you can purchase different lengths online for AE jeans. They carry longer and shorter lengths even when they aren't available in store. I'd suggest trying them on in store and getting the waist size right, then order the same size but a shorter inseam online. they should also be able to give you a free shipping card when you're in the store, since they don't have your length available.

See, when you restrict yourself to a size, you end up buying AE, A&F, or Giordano. And that makes Baby Jeansus cry.

That quarter inch is a big deal OK.

I know I always have the option to hem them, but I've hemmed skinnys before and haven't been too happy with the results. Plus, if you have to hem your new jeans they aren't new jeans until they come back from the tailor and i'm impatient :P ..it would just be nice to find a pair of skinnys that I looove that I can have right there!

I think you enjoy talking about and looking for jeans more than you actually like buying them. This thread is an excuse-train, choo-choo!
