WWYD?

I purchased a piece of wool and the inseam is 1.5 inches shorter than it is described in the listing. I am new to wool but am sure I am measuring it correctly. The seller has a lot of positive feedback. I'm not really sure what to do. Would you ask for a refund/partial refund? If they fit its really not a big issue but I thought I would be-able to get more use out of them. KWIM? And to make sure I'm not totally blonde I'm measuring from the side of the thigh/leg where the "butt" ends on the longies down to the end of the leg/foot where the fabric stops.. right?

Perhaps it's the way it's being measured. As in laying flat. Can you snap a picture with how you are measuring?

I measure the inseam from the crotch to the bottom of the leg cuff.

Going to take a picture with some mock pants. I don't wanna give the mama away but I am measuring where the crotch ends (so not the rise of the pants) to the bottom of the lg.

Some people measure inside out, some right side in... Certain brands... Sbish for example, the "correct way" is inside out which usually measures longer IMO

you should be measuring from the seam if there is one...right where the privates would be...to the end of the leg
