Quote from rjflynIm 6-2, male and buyoff the rack all the time and have never had a problem. It depends on which ones you buy as well. The unisex ones tend to be the ones I get and they must be longer.

I go to Alexandria Workwear, but I think that this may be a UK company only. Should be arriving in Phoenix soon so hope I can findlong enough over there.
By the way, all this talk of long legs is making it difficult for me to concentrate!

These are pretty long, fit like they have a 35 inch inseam. I thought the Barco's 'talls' were not very tall, FLOODS!!

(go figure). i always thought that i was better off being tall, as i hear the shorter girls talk about having to hem their pants.
could you post the websites? i have trouble finding pants long enough, would also love to have link for tall flare uniform/scrub pants! i need at least 33 inseam.
aswell just wanted to mention that for flared scrub like pants i love modrobes! (they're not "really" uniform pants, but who can tell the difference) super comfy, and they are long! http://www.modrobes.com/
Jan 17, '07Occupation: med surg Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 14i am glad there are other women with the same problem as me! I am a new nurse and am having a hard time buying scrubs that fit. It seems like the only scrubs with a long inseam are mens or unisex scrubs (and are huge on me). I just want to be able to wear pants that fit! I wear a medium landau pant, but they are about 3" too short. They only have certain styles that some in long. So...I made my own. I bought a pattern from the cloth store and added length to the pants. The best part is that I added as many pockets as I wanted.

They are sized big though so if you normally wear a medium you will take a small in cherokee.

The ones that are kind of flared with a slit at the side are great. I'll definitely be looking up some of these other brands though! My sister in law sent me a pair from somewhere in Canada ... Flirefly, i think? They're super SUPER soft and long.
Jan 18, '07Joined: May '02; Posts: 5,111; Likes: 9,315The Cherokee tall sizes do well for me, 6 foot, 185 lbs. Not long enough to drag on the floor, but do reach below the top of my shoes. I googled scrubs on line, and found them for under $15. I think I got them from Allheart online.
