Seriously Jude!! Ever try on some boot cut jeans...only to have so much material needing to be removed that they they're not boot cut anymore?
Jude-C Jude-C 8 years
GS, at least you don't have to have the tailor remove 6 inches of material off the bottoms of every single pair of jeans you buy :p (The grass is always greener, right?)

What's sad is when the short leg pants shrink too much and (all 5 feet 4 inches of me) gets that comment :rotfl:

lol, I want to be able to wear heels and not win a costume contest as an amazon. :true: My friend and I, she is 6'4" barefoot, won a halloween contest at Harry's (a big bar in College Station) and we didn't even dress up!

Give me some of your leg length, then. I wouldn't mind being able to wear flats without feeling like a Keebler elf.

51 inches is the length of her whole leg, from the waist to the bottom of the feet. And she is wearing heels. Her inseam is 43 inchest at most. The tallest American man (7'8) has a 43" inseam. http://www.boston.com/news/odd/articles/2007/11/07/tallest_us_man_is_7_foot_8_va_deputy/
