How is the inseam leg measured?
« on: 22/12/2010 21:04:00 »
I'm not sure if it should be measured from the crotch to the ankle or crotch to the bottom of the foot. I've seen people do it either way, but which is the real way?

Usually with an inch tape (or the SI equivalent).

Oh right, I thought it might of been crotch to the foot, I like my jeans to be folded up an inch or two from the bottom. I fit perfectly in jeans with 34 inch inseam but not sure if that is my exact measurement?

Oh, so I suppose you would consider, "I'll give you half an hour to stop doing that" perverted?

Generally it is supposed to be the ankle, but if you prefer your jeans to be folded up a little then go with what suits you  :)

34" seams, I mean seems, very long inside leg (for a woman) - Is that with them rolled up or not?

I'm out of nitric oxide I'm afraid. Used it all in the NOX SOX by POX I flogged on E-bay.

I've got a bottle of nitrous oxide though. Would that work, or would would it be the Laughing Policeman?

Was reading the ingredients of the canned cream, the gas is nitrous oxide...............

To measure inseam do you need to need to go to the airport and ask the nice "gent" there in the security line to have a quick measure along with the feel.

Having worked in Principles for Men I know that this measurement is taken from crotch to ankle, although from experience it is better to ask the customer to hold the tape at the crotch end!!
