''I'm not a designer," the model Karlie Kloss was saying about her new collaboration with Frame Denim on jeans for the taller woman. "But I know what it means to have clothes that fit."

At a Soho House presentation Tuesday morning, there were two racks of jeans. One displayed Frame's original styles, which come with an inseam of 29 inches. The other showed the jeans designed with Kloss, called Forever Karlie, which have an inseam of 40 inches. (Kloss, at 5 foot 11 inches, is famous for her long limbs.)

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the designs is that the guys behind Frame Denim, Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson (also the founders of the creative agency Saturday Group), say they have done absolutely no market research on taller customers besides Kloss, that is. They have produced 1,500 pairs of the jeans, which will be available for $209 to $219 at Barneys, Jeffrey, Net-a-Porter and other stores on June 1, just to see what happens.

Who knows? It could be the start of something big.

''The more ankles we can cover," Kloss said, "the better."
