Going by the feedback from our lovely customers, one of the biggest bugbears for many seems to be leg length in riding trousers.
We get it. Our TukTuk team of two represents both the 'height challenged' camp and the 'giraffe' category. No off the shelf purchase ever seem to fit just right.
So we've gone back to the drawing board, tossed around a few ideas and decided that we are going to toffer a custom length option for both of our current riding pant styles - and we are doing it in a way that keeps the gorgeous hem detail: the split at the bottom of the pant leg will remain and so will the tassels (unless you don't like either or one of those details, tell us, and we'll make them go away).
How to order
To most reliable way to achieve the perfect leg length for yourself, is to measure the inseam of a pair of pants you already have that are exactly the way you like them. When you order your pants, choose your style and size on our online shop and if you require a custom leg length, add a CUSTOM LEG LENGTH option from the riding jeans or casual riding trouser collection page. On checkout simply enter your exact inseam measurement in the notes field.
Some things to consider
Please keep in mind that all pants will naturally ride up your leg approximately five to eight centimetres when you sit in the saddle. As for us, we like that Cowboy sort of a cool look when our pants cover our boots down to the heel when we have our feet in the stirrups (it optically lengthens your leg length, or so we believe). If they are too long when you are on the ground, you can cuff them, and the faux suede lining they come with will help the cuff stay up.
On the other hand, you may have the prettiest boots and want to show them off? That's calling for a shorter length. As always, horses for courses. So, add or take away as many centimetres/inches you need to achieve the look you like.
You get the idea.
