I think you quoted the wrong person, but 34 sounds about right in W+H bottom for that guy.

Really? The guy stated that he usually wears "a size 35 in J Crew and 36 in Epaulet chinos." From comparing the Epaulet and W+H sizing charts, it seems that the Epaulet rivet chinos fit about the same as the Westpoint chinos. How then should he size down to a 34 in the W+H chinos. I'd think he'd go TTS with the W+H westpoints.

 

Just curious because I recently (five hours ago) ordered a pair of Westpoint chinos and I normally size up in Epaulet rivet chinos (31) and ended up ordering a 30 with the Westpoints

I've only tried on a pair of epaulet in 33, was too small and really needed like a 34. I take a 31 in most W+H like jeans and probably 32 in their westpoint chinos. YMMV I suppose, but that's been my experience.

W+H is slimmer ... tapers more aggresively by a longshot

Size charts show that the taper is the only different thing. Epaulet is 'slim straight' after all. That's why I was wondering why people wouldn't get the same size in both. I only went one size lower in W+H because I wanted something super slim.

Unless your blind, isn't it obvious by those size charts that wings and horns are much roomier!?

w+h tapers more aggressively. .... also inseam on epaulets are super long making them fit baggier on the legs.
post #848 of 871

I just got the W+H westpoint chinos that I ordered. I'm about a 30 waist and usually size up to a 31 for Epaulet rivet chinos. I'm not necessarily 'muscular' but I spent years as a powerlifter and I continue to lift weights albeit just not "seriously." Here's the thing, the chinos fit PERFECTLY around the thighs, knee, and they taper wonderfully...BUT, the waist is about a size too big as some of you suggested. However, I really can't size "down" (back to my original size) because the thighs are practically skin tight. I basically won't be able to get my thighs into a 30 (or 29) Westpoint chino. So given what I said, should I return them and just accept that W+H isn't for me, get used to wearing belts, or have a tailor bring in the waist.

 

Really, these chinos fit great (aka slim), but they're just too big around the waist and I can't size down because I then won't be able to fit into them anymore. What do you suggest?

a. return them and just accept that W+H isn't for me

b. get used to wearing belts

c. have a tailor bring in the waist.

You could have just got the anti-fits in a 30. They give more room in the thighs without having a big waist. Not sure if they made them this season or if many are carrying them, but these are the ones acrimony has:

No, I like it 'skin tight' around the thighs and need a pair of skinny chinos. The ONLY issue is the waist.

post #851 of 871

Hmm well i don't know then. Maybe you could achieve this look if you size down in the anti-fits/tapered westpoints to a 29. But in all honesty, they don't really design any of their pants to be skin tight, aside from the skinny jeans maybe. 

post #852 of 871

Oh, when I say it's 'skin tight', I mean like following pic.

 

Of course, this depends on where I wear the pants on my waist. If I wear it 1 - 2' below my navel as I usually do, it looks as below.  If I wear it even lower then it become a bit more baggier and the waist becomes even bigger (I have a bit of baby fat but am on a cut)

w+h chinos fit slim, its actually you that sized up to fit your legs. Sizing down to fit your waist would be the actual cut designed to be worn, which as you said would be too tight on u.

Just get the waist taken in....

I agree with this. And since they are 100% cotton and a pretty sturdy fabric, they won't stretch to accommodate the thighs much if you slim down. amathew, if you want a skinnier fit in these, maybe superset them squats on your cut with some dumbell lunges and lean up those thighs on your cut!...then size down one
