I've been wearing skinny/slim fit 31's from Levi's, Gap, J Crew, Banana and I've been overall pretty happy. I know, I know, let the flaming begin. However, I really want to try a pair of selvedge. The Gap selvedge premium slim 31/32's I have right now fit really well, but they're obviously not raw selvedge. I measured these as a base.
Looking at going with Gustin slim. Based off of their measuring guide, the 31's that I've been wearing are more like 33-33.5". Factoring in that the waist stretches about an inch, I'd want something that is a 32-32.5" waist, which Gustin says 32.5" waist = 32 marked sizing.
What should I do? 5 foot 11, 160lbs. Do I go with the 32's... which are 1 size up from what I buy off the shelf at most stores?
Will this same logic apply to APC? Unbranded? Rogue Territory? 3sixteen?
