I am 31", maybe *very* slightly larger, at the biggest part of my hips, and my waist these days tapers down to a 29. I've always worn my jeans anti-fit, and these days, that means a size 31 or 32, depending on how loose on my hips I want them to sit.. A 30 in the latest batch of New Standard fits nearly as loose as my 32 RRDS, pretty much barely sitting on my hips. I got a pair of 29 APC New Standards, and they had some room (maybe a little more than an extra inch) at the hips when I bought them. I like the anitfit look, but not as extreme as I normally wear them, so that was perfect. I can actually pull them on and off witout undoing any buttons. But I could have easily fit into a pair of 28's, and a pair of 27's would have been just a little snug. The latest batch of (raw) New Standards runs really big. I would definitely recommend a 30, or even a 29 for you.
