7 (Seven) Tall Men's Jeans with 36, 37 inch Inseam
7 for Mankind waist bands that show regular and xlongs
When you need a 36, 37, 38 inch inseam
I'm 6'7" and have found it hard for a long time to find jeans that fit. Few years ago, I received a pair of 36L 7 for Mankind Jeans. These are pretty expensive jeans at $150+ per pair. It really bothers me to spend that much for a pair of jeans, but my wife thinks they are firmly worth it since they fit so well.
For my birthday, her mother purchased me a pair of 36L long jeans in another style, but this time the jeans were too short. I measured them and the inseam is only 35 inches. What gives?
It turns out that 7 for Mankind jeans are hand cut and sewn, so each pair is a little different. The other thing, if you have long legs and need more than a 36 inseam, there are two types of longs. There are the regular longs and then there are the longs that say "Long" in the waist next to the style of the jean. If you are a tall person looking for long jeans, this is very important. The jeans that say long on the waist are much longer. See the pictures I posted to understand where to look. Within these two types of 7 jeans, there will be variances as well. So, I recommend only buying the 7 for Mankind jeans from the store and be sure to try on every pair. If you are looking for the Long 7 for Mankind Jeans, this cannot be trusted when purchasing online. In all the pictures I found online of the jeans, none of them showed the inside waist band. If you need a jean that is 37" or 38" inseam, you have a chance if they say "Long" in them.
The people that work in the stores aren't that familiar with the labels in the waist, although they do know that each pair varies. You may want to bring a tape measure and measure the inseam by running the tape measure from the top of the crotch, down the seam to the the bottom of the cuff. Jeans that were marked as 36L 7 for Mankind jeans actually ranged from 34.5 inches to over 38 inches.
The good news is, if you find the right pair, they are great jeans for tall people.
