Doc and JBreen -
Had a back and forth with BiG about the sizing issue. I totally agree - these are smaller than stated measured size - and to anyone ordering a pair of these - do NOT go by either BiG or SelfEdge's sizing chart. Order true to tagged size or size up one.
For example, the 'measured' size on both websites states that a tagged 30 measures 31
actual waist. Not true. I wear measured 30's and 31's comfortably in every other pair of dry I own, and these were deadly tight.
Even measuring using BiG's technique, as requested, my 30's were a true to size 30 (and this is measuring straight across, laid flat, back hem to front hem, outside of material to outside
(not inside of waist). BiG said, upon measuring themselves when I sent them back, that the jeans were true to their measuring standard. I didn't argue, and I did have BiG hem them, so other than a 'he said, she said' situation, I'm taking them back.
I think I'll have to sell these, especially given the expected shrinkage and lack of stretch. Them's the breaks though.
Other than that, these are beauties.
