ive also got a 33 waist and i got a size 31 on the 54 cali, which measured 32 raw, just because that was the only size left at selfedge. i can still wear it, tho the waist was really tight after one 10 min cold soak. it has stretched since but not by much, its still snug but wearable (waist measures around 32.5 now). the cut is already quite wide on me, but im a smallish asian dude. i reckon u shd be fine with a 32. 34 might be too wide all over? btw, the good thing...
