At 5'8", I rarely need to order tall pants. I have a long torso though, so I ordered a tall in these to ensure the waistband of the pant would sit at my natural waist, like on the model. Unfortunately, the waistband only reaches my hipbone, making me look much wider than I am. The length of the pants is also very short. The legs don't even reach my ankles as an ankle pant should. Given that I don't technically fall into the "tall" category (5'9"+), I can't imagine these would fit someone who is actually tall! These pants are cute, but they will definitely be going back.
