Trousers for tall and skinnies

I am in desperate need for new trousers. I am a size 6. Next fit me but don't do a long length in a 6 and I am 5ft 8.

Where else on the high street does smaller sizes but longer lengths. I am really struggling to find any.

I know there are specialist shops for lanky girls but they are not very stylish IME.

Can anyone suggest anything? Please!

asos has started doing a tall range, other than that new look or dotty P?

Thanks. I think DP do them but start at size 8' as do most shops. Will check out asos.

Gap sizes start at a uk size 2. I'm 5'8 too, with 33inch inside leg and sometimes their regular length is long enough for me. It depends on the style. They also do a longer leg length as well.

I am 5'8 and when I arrived in the Uk I was a small 6 (more like a 4). Impossible to find anything in UK shops. Try Zara, Mango.... May be topshop teen?

Topshop is the only place on the high street I've found that does jeans or trousers long enough. I'm 5'10 so I tend to get their 36 inside leg skinny jeans.

X-post! I've tried Zara and Mango without much luck in the past.

Thanks. Gap might be good. In shop their sizes are limited I find but will try online. Also thanks for other suggestions.

I always found gap quite bad; regular too short and never any long in shop and no size small enough (except when I live in japan). On line might be a good idea though. I do find that their quality has gone right down but not the price!
