Measure Your Inseam Length

When we ask you for your “inseam measurement” so that our saddle makers can build western fenders or english leathers that are the proper length for you, here’s how to do it (even if you’re all alone). We need your LEG LENGTH from crotch to floor in your stocking feet (not your jeans or pant leg size, as pants are built longer than leg length).

Best way to be accurate:

  • Hold a notebook or hard-edged something-of-substance as high as possible between your legs so that the top edge is parallel with the floor.
  • Calculate the measurement with a tape (a retractible metal one is easiest to use) from the top of the hard edge to the floor. (Note: it’s best to do this in stocking feet to get accurate length without the addition of heels on your boots or shoes).
