Inseam

Posted in Personal by Will on Saturday, March 8th, 2008 ~ 3pm

Confession: I don’t know what an inseam is, on pants. Waist I know. Length I know. The presence of “inseam” seems like an unneccessary addition to these two basic requirements. When pants list an inseam, I do not know what to do with that info.

On a related note:

If this world were like Mad Max’s world*, I’d wear a knee pad on my left knee because my pants always, always wear out there on the left knee. And uh, I’m not down on my knees too often, so this must simply be from the times when I tie my shoe, or when I lower myself to the floor to sit down (no chairs in my room).

*He wears a shoulder pad.

Score. Price of sweater when I looked at it and wanted it this past winter: I don’t remember exactly, but it was like $70. Outrageous, so obviously no, I didn’t get it. Even though it looked damn good on me. Then today, near the end of the winter, I am back there and I see there are two left in my size, in a sale rack for $49.99. Damn I say to myself, that is still expensive. But as winter wear goes, it is not terrible, I mean, I’ve seen winter stuff for $50 that is half as good. So I decide — given that my computer screen is working so far — to go ahead and get it, and hope we have some more cold days of winter left to use it this year. Then, when buying it, it rings up for — and the cashier does not question it — $23 total. Score.

    Inseam is the seam along the inside of the pant leg (it runs basically from crotch to hem).

    Yeah but is that different that “length”? Is “length” measured from somewhere else — like from the waist to the hem? Are they synonymous or different? If they’re synonymous, I’d like to ban the use of the term “Inseam”. Though I am not sure how I’d implement that plan.
