Very few pants on the market are their true waist size. Most go up two or three inches. In fact, if you're going with mall brands, the size is probably even larger. See Esquire's article on that here:http://www.esquire.com/blogs/mens-fa...e-chart-090710
Softy is putting up actual waist size measurements. To get this right, you should just measure your best fitting pants, and then get the ones that correspond most closely. I imagine if you wear a size 30, you actually want pants that have an actual 32 inch waist. Otherwise, you will not be able to sit down or eat.
