You know how casual sport shirts are just sized S,M,L,XL? Some designers (Yamamoto comes to mind) often size their pants the same way. It makes sense for some garments, I mean, how otherwise would you size drawstring pants. In many cases, though, it can cause confusion, especially since a large in a Japanese size is the equivalent of a European medium, and often a S/M American, and as pstoller pointed out in another thread, even the sizing between makers with the same sizing system vary widely. (I am probably between 38-40 in a Hugo Boss, but am definitely no smaller than a 40 (50) in Helmut Lang).
