Linen Pants in Every Inseam Length

Spring Break is coming soon (or already here, for some of you!) and we have linen pants in every inseam length! Whether you need a petite inseam length of 26″ or a tall inseam length of 37″, or something in-between, we’ve got you covered! All of these linen pants (and more) are available now at Search By Inseam. Linen pants are synonymous with spring and summer, but cargo pants are a hot new trend for spring, too. Check out our most recent blog post with the top 10 best cargo pants on the market right now. Without further ado, here are our top picks for linen pants this spring:

  1. First up, we’ll start with our tall women’s linen pants from the Elevated Closet. These 35″ and 37″ inseam linen blend pants come in navy or olive green, and I actually have both! 🙂 I can vouch for how comfortable they are. I love the drape, flow, pockets and length. I have a 35″ inseam in bootcut jeans, but with linen pants, there’s enough of a drape that you can go 1-2″ shorter on the inseam length. I actually took these to Nordstrom for hemming, which is unusual for me! 😉 These tall linen pants come in regular sizes and plus sizes up to 3XL.

  2. Secondly, I know a lot of people are wanting to try the linen jogger trend this spring. These Athleta Retreat Linen Joggers are fresh and fun. They come in a petite inseam length of 26″, a regular inseam length of 28″ and a tall inseam length of 31″. Remember, jogger style pants are like skinny jeans: they only come to your ankle. This means that the inseam length will be shorter than you’d need for a bootcut jean or any full length jean.

  3. Thirdly, a relaxed wide leg linen pant is always in fashion. These Caslon Wide Leg Pull-On Linen Blend Pants come in a petite inseam length of 28″ or a regular inseam length of 30″. They come in three colors: olive, navy, and black. Because of their relaxed fit and low drape, you’ll need a much shorter inseam length than you would with a pair of more form-fitting jeans.

  4. Fourth on the list of linen pants in every length is the 33″ inseam Roxy Oceanside Linen Blend Beach Pant. These pants have a lower rise and drawstring waist, and come in 4 colors. They are available in navy, black, stone, and white. If you normally need a tall 34″ inseam in jeans, try these on for size. The drape is lower than a jean, and you’ll most likely be wearing flats with this casual linen pant, so the length might be perfect for you.

  5. Number 5 is the beautiful coral Lina Straight Linen Pant from Banana Republic. More tailored than the previous styles, these linen pants are perfect for the office or dressing up. Petite inseams are 28.5″, regular inseams are 30.5″, and long inseams are 33.5″. Besides coral, they also come in black and natural.

  6. Another pair of linen pants by Athleta makes the list at #6. These Retreat Wide Leg Linen Pants come in five colors: pink, black, violet, undyed, and calla lily. The regular 30″ inseam comes in sizes XXS-3X. The tall inseam length is 33″ and the petite inseam length is 28″. These women’s linen pants have a unique split hem on the inside ankle for added breathability.

  7. If you are pregnant, these Smocked Waist Linen Maternity Pants would be super comfortable on your baby bump. The lightweight, breathable linen will keep you cool while you’ve got baby on board. These linen maternity pants have a 28″ inseam and come in navy.

  8. For men, these Banana Republic Linen Cargo Dress Pants have a tailored slim fit. They come in navy and khaki, but the khaki is almost sold out. These men’s linen pants have a hard to find inseam length of 33.5″. Waist sizes range from 28″-40″.

  9. Ninth, Banana Republic also has these Men’s Hugh Herringbone Linen Suit Pants without the cargo pockets. They come in a beautiful shade of blue and there’s also a matching sportscoat available. The inseam lengths for these are 29.5″ (short), 31.5″ (regular), and 33.5″ (long).

  10. Finally, #10 on the list is a men’s casual linen pant with drawstrings. These Perry Ellis Linen Drawstring Casual Pants come in a tall 36″ inseam and a regular 32″ inseam. Available in white, navy, and natural, and in waist sizes 29-54.

Women’s Tall Sweatpants: Winter Edition

This has been one cold month so far! Usually we are selling more yoga pants than anything else in January, because lots of people make health resolutions in the new year. But so far, women’s tall sweatpants with super warm linings have been the best sellers by far. It’s also clear I’m not the only one who’s been cold! 😉 Read further to see the top picks in women’s tall sweatpants this season:

1. These Inno Sherpa Polar Fleece Lined Jogger Pants have been our top seller so far in January. Prime eligible and under $40, they also have great reviews and will keep your long legs warm all winter. Available in 8 colors and up to a size 4X, their tall inseam is 34″ and their extra tall inseam length is 36″. There’s also a handy phone pocket and drawstring, too.

3. The Athleta Altitude Pant in Polartec is what I personally wear for most of winter. And fall and spring, too, actually. 😉 The quality is high and the price is higher than the first two options, with a price tag around $119. But if your size is still available after Christmas, you can often snag a great deal. These are currently on sale for $69.97 and the tall inseam length is 35.5″. I’ve been buying these pants for close to 10 years now. They wash up well and hold their shape. I love them for walks outside, underneath ski pants, and hanging out around the house, too. They are really versatile. Sizes are XXS-3X and they come in 3 colors. I usually get black or navy, but they also come in grey and maroon.

4. These LTS Tall Black Cord Kick Flare Leggings are a triple threat: comfy, cozy and cute! Made of comfortable stretch corduroy fabric, they have an elastic waistband and flared legs that pair great with sneakers. Available in sizes 4-20 and inseam lengths of 34″ and 36″, these ship from the UK and currently cost $50 USD.

Best Maternity Jeans for Tall Women

Before I was even pregnant, I remember thinking it would be impossible to find tall maternity jeans for my 35″ inseam. But by the time came, there was one pair on the market that fit me wonderfully: a dark wash Citizen’s of Humanity boot cut maternity jean in a 35″ inseam. They were perfect! I did pay almost $200 for them, but they served me so well through not one, but two pregnancies, that I thought the price per wear was worth it. So what are the best maternity jeans for tall women available today? I’m so glad you asked! 🙂 Here are my top 10 picks (this post contains affiliate links):

  1. Tall Straight Leg Maternity Jeans from The Elevated Closet. These dark blue maternity jeans are soft and stretchy and have an adjustable belly panel. In a super long 37″ inseam length, these are the longest tall maternity jeans I can find on the market right now.

Jeans and Pants for the Fall Season

Evidently, it’s officially autumn! It’s sweater weather! I’m putting away my shorts and sizing up jeans and pants for the fall season. The weather changed quite suddenly here in the Pacific Northwest, and we’ve certainly plunged into cooler temperatures and rain. I don’t know about you, but after I’m done back to school shopping for my kids, I feel like it’s my turn for a closet refresh! 😉 Fall is such a great time for new clothes. The rich colors of these pants remind me of fall’s changing leaves: yellows, reds, browns and greens. As a matter of fact, we have all of these pants and jeans (and more!) at SearchByInseam.com, where you’ll find short and tall inseams – and everything in-between for men and women of all sizes. Not sure what inseam length you need? Watch our new video on how to measure your inseam.

Firstly, these Tall Alina Wide Pants are a beautiful mustard yellow, which is a great color for fall. They have an extra long inseam length of 37″ and come in women’s sizes S-XXL. More colors are also available.

As far as jeans go, I love dark wash denim and fun colors for fall. These men’s Skinny Caramel Brown Hyper Stretch Jeans are an unexpected shade of brown. They would be great for a causal office, dinner date, football game or family photoshoot. Men’s inseam lengths come in 30″, 32″ and 34″.

Before and After Jeans Makeover

I love a good before and after makeover, don’t you? It’s so fun to see the comparison pictures and see how much better the after photo looks – at least most of the time. 😉  Well here is a before and after jeans makeover that I’m excited to share with you!

Dale contacted me recently and said, “Even though 30 inch inseam is not an unusual size, it is hard to find none the less. Lately I have had to buy long ones and feel like a 1950s kid with cuffs.” He included this picture of his jeans that were too long and had to be cuffed:

Dale's jeans are so long, he had to cuff them.
Dale’s jeans were so long, he had to cuff them.

He went on to say, “Looked at your business web site. Easy to navigate… Went to men’s pants and could not find 30 inch inseam carpenter pants.” I always love to help people find exactly what they are looking for. It’s the reason I started Search By Inseam! 🙂 So I searched online and found these Levi’s Gold Label Carpenter Jeans for him that I thought would be perfect. I sent him the link and I got this “after” photo a few days later with the words “Satisfied customer.” That was music to my ears!

Are you looking for a pair of jeans or pants that are hard to find? Let me know! I’m happy to provide extra personal service and I’d love to help you find the perfect fit.  Everyone deserves to look and feel good in clothes that fit them well. Would you like a before and after jeans makeover?

Review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants

As I mentioned in my post, What to Pack for a Tropical Vacation Using Only Your Carry-on, I bought these Old Navy Tall Linen Pants for my upcoming trip to the South Pacific. I actually bought two pairs because I love linen pants. 🙂 Here’s my review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants in green. Since I’m packing light and only taking one pair of pants, these didn’t make the cut for trip. I’ll only be taking the black pair because they go with all the tops I’m packing.

OK. First of all, these pants are a linen and rayon blend and they sit low on the waist. They have a drawstring waist and a relaxed fit. I love linen pants and have quite a few colors already. Black, white, tan, and a blue and white stripe pair are already hanging in my closet. I decided to try this sage green and am happy I did! It’s a great neutral and goes well with blue (as pictured), orange, yellow, pink, white and black.

The most noteworthy thing about these pants is the inseam length listed is incorrect! I ordered a tall small and the Old Navy tall size chart says these pants should have a 36″ inseam. Yet when I got them, I measured the inseam length at only 33.5 inches. What a difference! This length actually works well for me. I am 6′ tall and normally need a 35″ inseam for bootcut jeans and pants, but these are a loose drapey fit so a shorter inseam works well.

Why is this? When measuring the inseam length you need for a pair of pants, you measure from the crotch seam to the hem. In a drapey pair of pants like these linen pants, the crotch seam is not tight to your body like a pair of fitted pants. Rather, it drapes down several inches and as a result, the inseam length needed is much shorter than normal. Also, it is important to keep in mind the type of shoe you will most often wear with pants when determining the length of inseam you’ll need. Due to the fact that I’ll be wearing these with flat sandals, I didn’t need to account for extra heel height.

Buy linen pants in the exact length you need right now at SearchByInseam.com. Linen pants won’t be available much longer because it’s getting late in the season. The best selection is in early to late spring.

39″ Inseam Yoga Pants

39″ inseam yoga pants exist! Yes, they actually do! I couldn’t believe it when I saw these yesterday. I added them to SearchByInseam.com right away. They are the longest pair of yoga pants I’ve ever seen.

These Victoria’s Challenge Tummy Slimmer Compression Flare Boot Cut Black Pants come in inseam lengths of 39″, 37″, 35″, 33″, 31″, and 29″. They range in length from super long to quite petite. After you select the length, you can choose mid-rise or high-rise. I’ve never seen that option before! There’s a 30 day money back guarantee and the description says the compression fabric supports your muscles. I think my muscles need all the support they can get. 🙂

Wearing a Shift as a Top Works Well for Tall Frame

Yes, I’m wearing a shift as a top instead of a dress – and it actually works! I’d normally nix the idea of wearing such a short dress because I’m so tall it would be super short. But I’ve been following Tanasha of Pretty Tall Style for a few weeks now and she pulls it off so well! She’s 6’4″ (which is 4″ taller than me) and I love how she wears this blue mini dress as a top. I’ve never thought of wearing a short dress as a top before, but it works so well with skinny jeans! I decided to try the trick of wearing a shift as a top for myself and ordered this Corey Red Kendra Shift from Rent the Runway as part of my Unlimited subscription.

This shift is the best, brightest color of orange. I love it how pops! It has a perforated pattern that is really fun and has handy side pockets. There is lining from the shoulder to the hemline. The three-quarter-length sleeves aren’t lined, so your skin is visible through the holes on the arms. I received a lot of compliments on the shift and I liked how it looked with my Hudson Nico Elysian Mid Rise Skinny Jeans that I reviewed here (available on SearchByInseam.com in a 30″ inseam) and my Earthies nude flats that have amazing arch support (and are available in sizes 5-12).

Other Rent the Runway reviewers wore this as a short dress. I think I’m the first one to wear it as a top with jeans! I’m going to have to try this again! No more ruling out short dresses; I’ll just re-purpose them! Thanks to Tanasha of Pretty Tall Style  for letting me in on this fashion secret for tall women. 🙂 Photo by Jason Henderson.
