If one just lines up the front and back waistbands and takes a quick measurement (without pulling at all to get it competely lined up and flat), the measurement would probably be .5" - 1" smaller.
Post soak pics of size 32. As per Kiya's suggestion, I did a one hour warm soak and line dry. Shrinkage was about 1" - 1.5" in the waist, 2" in the inseam, and about .25" in the thigh/knee area. The waist is actually still a bit loose, which is fine with me. However, the thighs/knees are already about as tight as I could go. I plan to always soak/wash in cold water and line dry.

I bought these from Denimbar a few months ago. I've worn them a handful of times (5-6), and have washed them twice (cold delicate cycle, line dried). They were originally 34" inseam, but I had them hemmed down to 32.5". No rips, tears or stains. Measurements: Waist: 17" Inseam: 32.5" $80 shipped in US. These cost around $250 at most places.
