  • Are you really really sure?? :lol:



    Eg: I'm 6" with a 33" inside leg. If I added 5" to my inside leg my hips would be at the bottom of my rib cage - I'd look really censored oddly deformed. And I'd have to take out a load of internal organs stuff.
  • 37" inside leg. Thats from the floor to my groin. Should it be between the ankle and groin or is it right?
  • No, that's right, floor to groin (V of the join leg & nutsack) without shoes.

    Still, very long legged for a 32" waist, you might be stugglin' what ever you buy. Although the Tenn Outdoor ones i got have a good 3 - 4" inches spare at the bottom (annoyingly). In theory they would fit you.
  • ...are you calling me lanky? :evil:
    hahah
  • aldi have something similar to these for £12.99 (only bottom half) - maybe worth a look before you purchase them
  • hi....where would i find a link to such aldi tights? thanks

    Check that out, links in there, including the Tenn Outdoors ones I got. The large would fit your leg length.

    WTF has his waist size got to do with his inside leg? :?

  • Lower the waist size the shorter the leg usually. I reckon if he got a 34 / 36 waist size he'd probably get the extra length out of the garment. ...I should have worded it better, it was one of them you think internally and forget to articulate properly. :P

    Eh? Since when?

    By that reckoning, somebody who's 6 foot 6 tall with a 34" waist should have shorter legs that somebody 5 foot 9 with a 38" waist!!! :lol:

    Take a look around. Since when do see an 'average' waist / leg ratio sizing stocked of 32" / 36" - you'll get a 32" / 34" tops. 35-36" waist come in stocked 32" 34" 36" and sizes in between ....33" leg too sometimes.

    Oh right.... :roll:

    Didn't realise you'd made such a study of it. But you did say that in general small waist = shorter inside leg.

    Maybe in trouser sizes yes, but there are thin people with long legs and fat people with short legs. So as far as people are concerned your argument is more full of holes than the Pope (holy, geddit? :D ).

    Come on Einstein it's not hard to grasp retailers tend not to stock 'odd' sizings even if the manufacturers bother to cater for it in the first place.
