Measuring Your Inseam
WHAT IS YOUR HEIGHT/INSEAM?

how is inseam correctly measured? (ie: crotch to ankle, crotch-under ankle, crotch-floor?)

does inseam determine how long your legs are?

The last question is yes, but I am unsure about from crotch to ankle or floor.

I heard it was from your crouch to the bottom of your ankle. At least that always worked for me.

I'm 5'6" with a 32" inseam.

I always measure crotch to bottom of my inner ankle. I am 5'10 and have a 30 inseam, but sometimes I have to buy 31s because sometimes they shrink in the wash a little bit.

Its hard to find pants/jeans that fit.. which is why I fell in love with Rock and Republic - this is the only jeans that fit.

so, is it decided that the correct way to measure is crotch to bottom of inner ankle? i dont have any pants other than jeans, so the only way i know my inseam is by which jeans i buy. im 5'8" with a 34" inseam.

I'm 5'2" and wear can get away with 31" if I wear heels. I can wear 29 1/2-30 with flats.
