Customize the fit and length

The waist opening is the same on both fits. South 2nd measures an additional 1-inch at the seat and thigh. The front rise is also a ½ inch longer. As in all big & tall jeans, the inseam is at least 1 1/2" longer than the listed size.  If you require a shorter inseam, try our hemming service. We would also advise tapering if you are ordering the Grand Street and plan to make the inseam shorter than a few inches, because the leg opening will get wider the higher the placement and the knee area will rise into the thigh area the shorter the inseam. To learn more, read our articles.

Chart showing how to taper jeans and effects of hemming

Measurements are taken from actual production samples. Our recorded specs may differ slightly from jean to jean, so we average and take into consideration the targeted measurements. When comparing sizing, please note, we use total circumference measurements in our fit charts. Others may use 1/2-circumference.
