The summer weight jeans also seem to be slightly larger in the ankle opening (about 1/2").

Thanks guys. I noticed the summer weight chinos were bigger in the waist and leg opening - I thought I had found the "perfect fitting" brand for me when I got the Fair Ends collab camp pants, but alas the chinos were a bit off. it's nothing $30 in tailoring can't fix, but still a bit of a bummer.
So with all that in mind, how would folks recommend sizing on the Nissinhbo Mills 13.5 once copper selvedge denim? A 35 in the Fair Ends collab camp pants fit me perfectly (like, the most perfect fitting pants ever) and a 35 in the summer weight chinos fits me comfortably in the waist but is loose in the thigh and the leg opening is too big.
