I can only imagine how the knee placements on pants would be off after lengthening your femurs for example. Is this true, or will it be fine getting new pants? It'd be a hassle tailoring every pair of pants you get lol.

Finding pants was easier for me now that I didn't have to shop in the kids section.

My calves got bigger though and no matter what, taking my pants off is now a struggle.

I was 1.63 at 12-13 y/o, so 1.64 is pretty much kids size in my country lol. I’m sure the same can be said about the States.

I believe once we lengthen our legs we would have the leg length of an average height man. There are more options for people that are average than not.

No that's not what I meant.

I meant that some pants have a knee-point and if your femur is longer then it won't match the knee point of the pants. Though on second thought I don't think it matters much or is even obvious.

No, it is better now.
Before I have to shorten all my jeans-pants, now there is no need for 30 length jeans. Even most 32 are ok. 34 are still too long though.

I don't remember as there is a long time since the last both segment x ray I did.
But I remember that after LL my tibias were only about cm less than femurs.
Right now a 30 pants has exactly my inseam length.

As about wingspan I never measured or care.
I have a very wide back and normal arms length for about an 1.70cm height guy so no big deal with my current height.
My chest diameter is 118cm however.

This has never been a problem for me.  Most pants don't get different when you reach the knee.  A few pairs of heavily-stylized jeans that I got recently have clearly-defined knee segments that are very slightly higher than they should be on me, but they're still absolutely wearable and don't look or feel werid.

I shopped in the kids' section at 170.  A lot of stores' kids' sections go all the way up to late teenagers with the L and XL sizes.  I miss those Old Navy boys XL pants. >:(

most people wanna do all this to get chicks but for me, I look forward more to simple things like walking to a store and buying jeans off the racks in the adult section, standing in line feeling averagish in height, swipin' my card and walking out :)

I think it should be easier. At a 29" inseam right now it's really hard to find pants, but when I reach 32" it should be much easier.

I don't know.  I just go by what the pants say.

Indeed! It's difficult to find good pants when have a stocky short build. Kids pants can be too "skinny" if you know what I mean. But after LL, become more average length of legs, you will be able to have an easier time as you now shop for average adult pants.

A week ago I got a few men's smalls and theyre a bit long, but still wearable. I assume I would be able to find pairs that fit well post-lengthening.

They don't call me anything to be honest in terms of my height but clearly my legs seem a little long for my height.
Don't forget I lengthened 7.5cm which is a lot for tibias.
Also, I wear only slimfit jeans (and relatively skinny on summer some times) that are a bit low the waist (I don't know the exact word on english), not up to my belly.
Like most in style jeans of europe brands like diesel, sik silk, jack jones etc.

Slim clothes on your measures make you appear taller or at least not shorter than you are and I always wear clothes that fit me good and are not big or bulky.
