I remember answering you in a PM before, but just for the sake of public knowledge (I don't have the slim-fit rigids so can't attest to those):
I got mine in Navy and size 30x32, my last pairs of trousers have been size 28 w/ waist buckles (so fit more like a 29) (olive wool, naval cotton) and size 29 in the burgundy dyed officer chinos and that has allowed me literally enough room for tugging in a shirt and my hand's depth - if for instance I would require to put my small thin hands down my trousers. Since I bought the cords, I have worn them the majority of the time (10+ days) and they have yet to stretch, but they feel inherently more flexible compared to chinos, but I sort of expected that out of cords. These fit nearly identical to the officer chinos for me, just slightly less restricting, so to be safe I would recommend going TTS, I sized up one because I was tired of the the rise on the 29s reaching up so close to my package.
Hope that helps. I am quite pleased with these, I haven't had a pair of cords since I was a kid, so I've always been impartial to them, having had my parents force me to wear when I was a child. Now that I have a pair, especially one that fits well and is very decently constructed, I think I am going to love these. Very versatile in my wardrobe, and looks great with my weejuns!
