Question Jeans for a tall gal

I'm 6'1" tall and have a heck of a time finding jeans (or any pants for that matter) that are long enough for me. Does anyone know where I can find good, tall riding jeans?
Thanks =)

have you considered wearing mens wranglers? Im only 5'10 but I have freakishly long legs and a really short upper body and mens wranglers fit me best...

I haven't tried yet, but wanted to give it a shot. Do they come fairly fitted?

They arent to bad...a little on more "baggy" I guess but I like to have a little room to move in my jeans rather than having to peal them on and off. The length of the croth is better on them which I like to

Check out Sheplers. They carry a wide variety of brands and sizes. I love the Wrangler Aura brand (there is a tall size too). I've had great customer service and they have quick ordering.

I agree with men's wranglers. Though you may be able to find fitted women's on the internet. Are you fairly thin? The longest jeans that I have found in the store in a size 5/6 is a 36 inch inseam (woman's jeans). My brother is really skinny and tall 6'3" . He wears "cowboy cut" wranglers with a 30" waist and a 38" inseam. That should be tall enough for you. I am not sure but I think that you can get them in either slim or relaxed fit, whichever you prefer.

Of course, I don't know much about other types of jeans because I have always worn Wranglers and love them. Plus, they are more reasonably priced here than other well known brands like Lawman or Cruel girl.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm serious. I've got opposite problem. I'm short. Sewing helps. Also my daughter is very difficult to fit. Sometimes sewing is the best choice for fit.
