I have the frye jane 14L in redwood. I love them but I'm 5'10" and all legs so they do come up a bit short on me (like 4+ inches from the bottom of my knee). I usually wear some socks that I pull up an inch or two past the top of the boot and it evens out. They have more of a western flare to them but go really well with skirts. I don't pair them with jeans because they look silly on me being that they're not quite tall enough to reach my knees.
I'm assuming you mean the frye jane tall boot in taupe. I just ordered them but won't be receiving them until next week. I'll let you know how they go. I'm really hoping they'll be tall enough for my freakishly long legs.
I'm a bit of a frye-aholic, so I'm sure I'll love them but I'll let you know just in case
