They really get me confused. I understand that they can be shorter than the bootcuts which should almost skim the ground but what is the correct length?
It is a no brainer for staright leg jeans which tend to be narrow enough on the bottom not to go over the shoe but the picture with some straight leg trousers is different.
These are my new navy martins from BR. They are straight but because of the relaxed fit the leg opening is pretty wide: mine measure 18" across! Is this a good length for them or should they be longer? How much longer? For bootcuts you gave us a formula of 0.5 inch or less of the ground: do you have the formula for straight leg pants as well? How much above the ground (or below the base of the heel) they should go?
For the reference my straight jeans measure 15" across as well as my tapered trousers. Their length is easy to determine but these straight legs? I have no clue.

Pic 2 is from BR site - would you say they are PPL here or not?

Another pair of straight legs from BR - from the front. Length is the same - is the break in the leg enough here?
