Yeah, I think part of it is that I don't have a lot of extra length in them. A little more in the inseam and I'd have a lot more stacking going on around/above my knees which would make them look looser.
They're tight when I sit down, but not when I'm standing. Like I said, I think the thighs have a bit more give. To be honest, I was hoping for a slightly looser fit and should have gotten 32s, but these are actually quite typical of what I wear. I'm pretty goddamn happy with them.
Size 31s...I'm 5'11" and 160 lbs. Definitely could have gone up to 32s, but I do love a really slim pair of jeans and these have a little stretching left to do in the thigh.
I haven't tried them on, but I think KMW 1980s would work pretty well for the OP.
If you can handle the shrinkage, go for it.
That's one of the coolest sport jackets I've ever seen.
My tailor said that taking in the waste isn't something you want to do to jeans if at all possible, just because of the way they're constructed. What she did with one of my pairs was bring down the back rise by moving down the waistband. It didn't change the circumference, but they sat a lot better with a belt.

Thank you LA Guy, Godmother, and the Style Forum for the collaboration. Yeah, like I said, mine are basically like my 29 NS, but with a much better looking top...
Got mine today...these jeans are incredible. I was wavering on 31 or 32 and went with 31s. Probably should have sized up, but they still fit and are already stretching nicely. They fit basically like my size 29 APC NS (before they got laundered and shrank again...) after they were fully stretched. The denim is just unreal. I'll post pics of the fit when my camera is charged.
