For the front rise, start at the end of the crotch seam and measure straight up to the middle of the front waistband.
For the back rise, start at the center of the back waistband and measure straight down to the crotch seam.
Knee measurements are taken exactly 14" down from the crotch seam.
For the leg opening, measure across the bottom of the leg at the opening.
