These pants are NOT ankle pants. I have a 29.5" inseam and I still have to hike these up to just get them to not drag on the ground. As well, in the picture, it shows the back of the pants seeming to have a cute split in the back of the leg. These do not have them for some reason, which is kind of disappointing as it was one of the reasons I bought them. The pants are a decent, heavier quite stretchy synthetic material and seem to be sized correctly. They will still work for the office, though not quite the style I bought them for. I don't know how they wash yet, though as they are synthetic, it shouldn't be a problem.
