Popping just the top button feels about right, so I'm thinking that a 1" ease will be close to perfect. My LVC '66 501's now fit like a glove after a bit of wear and a single wash, so I'll just give the new pair a little time. The LVC are what I used to compare measurements to. It's nice to have a *real* 34" inseam on the Gustin so I can double roll the cuffs, which the SH are begging for, in my eyes. The LVC are labeled 32/34, but are now missing ~3" in length, even if the waist is accurate. I still love them, though.
I also saw the Natural just as they posted it, so put an order in for them as well. I had originally had them as straight, but just switched to slim. Now that I'm used to the lower rise and know how to wear it, I much prefer it.
I promised a fit pic once they came in. My camera's battery was dead, so I had to fall back on my phone's crummy camera.
Big thanks to SparhawkJC for letting us all know about this back in January!
I totally agree, I have a pair of standard 31 size.
perfect fit on waist when standing/walking and little less when sitting. yes they're high rise and I am now used to much low rise.
anyway the prob for me is that they're way tooo long. 34 on a 5.7 like me sure would need some cutting,
but If i cut them I guess I'll loose some of their details. now i am double cuffing them with a 5 cm cuff.
Do you think its still ok? I used to never cuff the jeans (since 1987, I guess)
