Think I can avoid this prob with the 30W momotaros, or too tight? Pretty sure my true waist is a 32, but having had the most success with 29W raw denim, I really don't know anymore.
You may be between sizes, but 30 sounds right for you.
Word of wisdom - dispel any beliefs you have right now about what you 'usually
wear in jeans' and get your best fitting jeans and measure the waist
. Deduct for the stretch. Analyze every new pair of jeans based on your real waist size. You can't assume anything. Go by size charts and fitment recommendations and your growing experience with your true waist size.
Momotaro 0701 will shrink an inch in the waist and won't stretch particularly much, but enough. Buy TTS on the waist, since the tagged size is the actual size new, then will shrink an inch, then stretch back an inch or so. You must
soak these prior to wear. Treat them like usual STF.
Top block and upper thighs are snug, and a great fit if that's your preference. I have no ass, so love 'em.
Good luck, bro. Post pictures. Amazing jeans. Some of the best I've ever seen.
