Hello, ladies, I am 6′ with an insem of 36″ and I’m wondering where you buy your pants? I have been tortured with this task since I was 15 to find pants, so far the only place I can really find them is Alloy.com for a reasonable price and in my size, (I’m not a skinny minny)…. Where do the rest of you tall ladies buy your pants?

Bummers…if you get long length at the Limited it’s a 34″ inseam, and if you let out the hem you can make it 36. I always let out the hem on mine (except on the regular length ones; I’m not as tall as you!). They usually have a few different basic colors (between 3 and 6 or so) available.

Old Navy and New York & Company.

Charlotte Russe sometimes has long pants but when I buy their pants I have to undo the hem and iron it out to get an extra half and inch or more.
But alot of stores Long and Extra Long pants but only available in select styles

Thanks I hadn’t really thought about letting hems out (duh), I am not very good with sewing and whatnot, but I will def look into that…

I buy Levi’s and usually those longs are okay. I’m also 6′! I also usually strech the legs out when I’m washing them before putting them in the dryer to keep them from shrinking up

Thanks, even in the stores the long or tall pants arent long enough and tend to shrink a tiny bit in thee wash which pushes them into flood territory… I literally haven’t bought a pair of pants in a store since 2001

@Jen4414: I am 5’11 with 36″ inseam; I feel your pain about buying pants. I have had AWESOME luck with JCrew. Their *tall* pants come in a 36″ inseam…jeans, too! NY & Co. is where I buy my work pants, but make sure you try them on because not all of their pants are created equal. I also have good luck with a few designer Jean companies – Hudson and Seven for all man kind. Oh, and check Ann Taylor Loft, I purchased a pair of their jeans that are actually a little too long. Right?! I know! However, JCrew happens to be a pant favorite.

@moosejaw: Thanks, I knew there had to be others like me, All my friends are short and cannot relate and my mom is 5’3″ so when she was shopping for me she was at a total loss lol… I will look where you suggested. Thanks a bunch!

I’m 6′ too! I second moosejaw’s comments – I find that the premium jean companies (Joe’s, Seven’s, Rock & Republic) tend to be way longer, but you pay for that too! Gap and Banana Republic both have tall pants with a 36′ inseam. Good luck!

I get my jeans at Maurices. I also get them at The Buckle! I get my work pants at Oldnavy.com too!

Gap’s Tall line has 36.5 – 37″ inseams, but is available exclusively online. :/

Long Tall Sally. They are a UK company but they ship to the US and Canada and the prices are very reasonable. Inseams as long as 38″ and sizes from 4-24 I believe… I buy all my pants and many of my jeans from them! http://us.longtallsally.com/

I have to disagree with a few comments, NY and company, old navy, charlotte russe are not long enough for me. I second the Jcrew, and premium jeans (hudson, joes, seven, rast). They are pricey but I’ve had success with trying them on in store to get the right fit and size and then buying them off ebay. Also Gap longs work sometimes and Banana Republic sometimes they need alteration.
I hope this isnt threadjacking but what do you do for Jackets and dress shirts? I havent had any luck anywhere with getting the arms long enough and sometimes the body lengthn. Jcrew and banana republic longs are close but not enough.
