after lacing and tying them up properly and wearing them around the apartment i realize these are actually just right. wore them all day, knees and ankles haven't felt better since I moved to new york and started walking and biking everywhere.
Regis: I went with L (6'2", 33" waist). They are slightly loose up top, but a medium would have been too short for me. I like them a little loose anyway, since I toss them over shorts before and after workouts.
