    Ok guys, I need some fashion advice. Apparently when I was given the gay gene I didn't get the decorating and fashion part because I am color blind and have no fashion sense whatsoever...If I could wear a tshirt and jeans every day, or tshirt and cargo shorts every day I would...anyhew, the question is:

    when you buy pants and you look at the length, how long are they supposed to be when your standing? If I buy a 30 length they look great when standing but when I sit down you can see my socks and ankles and I feel like they are to short...But if I get a 32 length they look to long and bunched up when I stand but look good sitting down. I know some of you are going to say get a 31 but I dont typically see that length in stores.

    What is the proper length? Where is queer eye for the queer guy? haha.

    Trousers should break at the shoe...and come down in the back to about the back of the heel.

    What Caslon said.

    You're still going to show some sock when you sit, just make sure they're long enough not to show leg & they're a close colour match to your shoes.

    yes...dress pants need to break at the shoe...meaning they should touch the top part of the shoe and "break" or bend when you're standing

    I agree with the previous posts, but remember when buying pants... what they are composed of and the style
    will also dictate the look. In other words, not all pants will look the same if you have them cut the same length. They will fall differently in some cases.
    Even the kind of shoes will make them "look" differently.

    Yep, most of the other people seem to have gotten it right. You'd want to go for a 30, and buy some black (or other colors to match) socks that cover your ankle.
