The next step after finding clothes that fit right is KEEPING them that correct long length.
Wash Clothes with Cold Water

Avoid the Dryer at All Costs
Putting your clothes in the dryer is not a good idea if you want to preserve their length and prevent shrinking!!! You really must avoid the dryer at all costs. It really doesn't take that long to hang your clothes and wait for them to dry, and it is WELL worth the effort!! Most clothing shrinkage happens in the dryer. This is of essential importance if long length is important to you..
