Unfortunately this is not really an ankle-length jean as portrayed in the pictures, and if you look at the sizing information it may explain why. Both models shown are almost the same height (5'10"), yet you can tell the jeans are really different lengths on both of them - it seems like the larger the size, the longer they go. I'm almost 5'7" and ordered the 30 and 31, and both were too long, basically a full-length pair of jeans. Sadly, although I loved the fit, the look was off because I wanted to wear these with boots and the result looked very 90s with the straight leg, but not in the way I was going for. The inseam was 1-2 inches too long to be considered ankle-length.
I know the inseams are not going to be the same for every size, but sadly it was way off for me. If you want a great-fitting, vintage-look, sturdy jean but don't care about the length, this might be for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
