Quick question, I've recently started wearing more casual chinos and pants versus my jeans. I'm a bit confused by the sizing. I wear a 30 waist in slim fit jeans across the board, but with casual pants it seems to vary. I recently picked up Emerson vintage chinos from Banana Republic, but 30 did not fit, and 31 is a little snug...32 seems to fit right. I assume it's the stretch of the Jeans, so I measured my waist, right above the hip-bone and its a little over 31.
so my question is, should I just pick up the 32 or just grab the 31? I plan on slimming down a bit more this summer, but I've noticed my waist over the years never really changes...since my fat goes to my beloved tummy and not my waist line.
