Hi friends!

I’ve been mostly lurking on the blog lately, but I’ve popped in to ask if someone can enlighten me on puddle pants.

I am looking for a HEWI pant: something more roomy (comfy) than denim, more pulled together than sweatpants. Wide enough leg to be breezy… packable, full length, no ankle elastic…. The trouble is, most of what I am seeing in store check all the boxes with respect to silhouette - but my gosh, what is happening with inseams?! All the models look like they are standing on their hems! How do they walk??!! I am all for a bit of pooling on the top of foot, but these hems are dragging the ground - and not in a cool 90’s retro way!!

I can order a pair and have them hemmed - but, how short? And what will happen to the drape or slouchiness if I whack off the bottoms?!
