Measurin your waist or measuring your favourite pair of jeans using The BiG method
imo, one particular reason why some peeps are confused about sizing is, because they neglect to consider an important dimension to the equation, the rise
. you can't compare waist measurement of pairs that don't have equal/same rises. direct waist to waist comparison only works if both jeans have the same rise [ie,
front + back] & are of the same
condition [which should be post soak/post wash].
so, to answer your 2nd question first, you need to measure ["your favorite pair..."] @about the point commensurate to a 701 rise
. once you got the corresponding waist measurement, look for the post soak/wash waist measurement
of a 701 that'll match [that]... & whatever the tagged size on that = your size.
as for TTS
, it is just an approximation
__ a base comparison to guage how you would like the cut/model to fit you. but, you will only be able to determine, if you already know your waist size
on different cuts [ie,
in relation to thigh + rise measurement], as well as denim behavior [shrink vs stretch].
hope that helps.
