Wish they were 1-2" longer for a read tall (or even for a regular length gal with heels) as they do shrink up a wee bit but the shaping is finally wonderful for a long-legged gal with "give" at the knees. You know we have long levers : ) We really don't want those short leggings in the winter or those ankle pants if you are a true TALL. Thank you Reitmans, these are terrific. I would have bought them in an eggplant or red-plum or russet or chocolate brown as well. This is my second pair since my store only sells one at each size.
