Is It Too Much to Ask???

Dear Denim Pant Makers,

I have been on the hunt for a pair of denim pants.  You would not think that this was a difficult thing to do; however, it is turning out to be quite a feat.  

You see, I am in desperate need of some new casual pants.  I have not replaced my 3 current pairs of denim pants since 2007.  Why do you ask?  Well, because it is like asking for a miracle to be able to find any that fit.

Is it too much to ask that I find a pair of pants that are not made for a teeny-bopper or a grandma?  Why oh why is there nothing in-between?

Is it too much to ask that I find a pair of pants that are not floods?  Yes, I have long legs.  I am proud to have them, but just because my length is a 34/36 does not mean that my waist is a 44, or on the flip side, an 18.

Is it too much to ask to find a pair of pants that are not so short-waisted  that my butt crack hangs out the top and my muffin-top hangs over the sides?

Is it too much to ask that the pants that you actually do design that are high-waisted don't have the ugly-small-high-granny pockets?  As I previously stated, I don't like my butt crack hanging out of the top of my pants, that is true; however, just because I don't want my butt crack hanging out of the top does not mean that I want the pockets so high on my pants that it looks like my butt is underneath my shoulder blades.

Oh, dear Pant Makers.  Why must you torture me so?  All I want is a pair of pants that fit me, yes, me.  Not my teenage daughter, not my mother, just little 'ol me.  Oh, and while you are at it, I would prefer not to pay $125+ dollars for said pants.  Is this really too much to ask?

Sincerely,
Me

  5. Loved this post! Feel the same way. I HATE shopping for clothes for myself. I don't have the flood problem, mine is the other way around. Mine are always to long.

  13. Amen!!! I hate having to buy denim pants as well. Last I looked I found something that MIGHT fit your criteria at Maurices. I bought the store name brand but they worked for me and they have short, average, and long lengths. Good luck!

  20. Hi! I'm your newest follower from FMBT. I have to say that I usually bite the bullet and spend a lot of money on jeans... it's just worth it NOT to worry about the length and muffin top. I figure having one or two GREAT pairs is worth the money. Anyway, I'm also tall (34 inch inseam)... My favorite jeans are Joe's but I also love Not Your Daughter's Jeans. Good luck!
