There is no industry standard on what makes a jean ‘long,’ ‘tall,’ or ‘extra-long.’ If there was an agreed-upon inseam for each of these categories, it sure would make things easier! But since there isn’t, the best thing you can do is measure your inseam and then shop by your exact inseam. Each retailer has a different definition for what a makes a tall jean, and even then, they often change the definition for different styles of pants. So, you’re really only left with knowing your inseam and then utilizing the cool features on Search By Inseam to search multiple retailers for your exact inseam length. Happy Shopping!
