I purchased the exact type of pants to replace a pair that got destroyed (same color, size, and brand), and noticed the length was shorter than usual! I buy a small petite and on my previous pair, the pant leg was close to the heel of my shoe, while this new pair it stops right at my ankle. Don't know why the difference in length. I'm keeping it cuz I can deal with it, but if I purchase the same item, I should be getting the same item. Hopefully I didn't get something that was 'refurbished'.
