I will try to ask the longer, slenderer members what their choice of garments are. Was the 85cm inseam a "to the floor" measurement, rather than a trouser length?
The 85cm inseam measurement is what's normally referred to by us chaps as "inside leg" and is the length needed from one's Y-piece to the top of the foot such that no ankle shows but one doesn't tread on one's own trouser turn-up either. She has very long legs, does the ladywife. Right up to her armpits!
Incidentally, the arms are also long, as are her fingers and toes. She tells me that she can hang upside down from tree branches by her curled-up toes, using her long arms to grab the hats from passers-by. For some reason she had never demonstrated this ability to me.
