i took a 28 in these as well since these tend to run large and also stretch. but i guess you would be more of a 29
hum, not sure. The slim fit I tried in 28 was super rigid, the leg was a bit too tight, and the waist was pretty close to impossible to button. Maybe they will stretch enough, but can't really tell. I only have my "correct" size low straight for about 2 weeks. I wear suit 99% of the time, so can't really tell how much they soften up/stretch, though even after only wearing for 4 days, they do seem to soften up already, not sure about how much they will stretch though.
So basically it's all the same size for you in low straight/slim and these chinos? For reference I am about 5'7"~5'8", and weights about 145lb, my true waist around belly button is probably like 30.5 ish
