    When buying trousers, how do you know if they are the right length? Without shoes should they be half inch above the floor?

    You're thinking about this too much.

    You WILL know if they are too long or too short.

    Just ask the guy/girl/person in the shop if you are really worried.

    Lol I know that it's easy to figure out if it's too long or short. But I want it to be perfect.

    Attending Prince Philip's birthday, are you? :curious:

    Seriously, it's like so obvious to tell.

    Unless you're some posh rich white boy from sussex, this is not worthy of a thread.

    Raaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - It doesnt matter.. It will feel correct. If you sit down and your trouser hems are up at your knees they are too short... If you constantly trip over they are too long.

    when standing up normally if the cuff ends at about the top of the shoe thats american norm. If it ends around the top of the base of the shoe then thats the british norm.

    But these are old fashion cuts, dont even ask me how I know this. But seriously it dosent matter as long you can see the shoe and not the socks when standing up.

    If you're that desperate go to Slaters. They will adjust your trousers (and suit if you get one) for you, free of charge, and any further adjustments you need made to your suit during its lifetime are free. They also give you really good advice as to what suit/shirt/trousers to buy, i.e. what does and does not suit you. Their customer service is really good, they really helped me out when I needed to buy a suit.
