I have problems with the inseam as well. My thighs are huge and my waist isn't too far behind lol. I used to fit a large back in the day when I was riding. Now because of aging, injuries and weight gain I use an xl with a belt. But the legs are too long so I fold them over.
Can the tailor still hem them and still have them waterproof? I'd like to be able to retain the elastic and the buttons on the bottom of my pants.
OP- So you're saying bought pants too small because the stores near you didn't have larger sizes? I wish I had your problem.
Dude, just get another pair from somewhere else and return your current pair.
