Just got my Snowpants back from the tailor.
I had them shortened to hit at the ankle, since I prefer that over the rolled look. I also had them tapered from the knee down to a 7" hem.
In my opinion, this makes them more easy to wear and makes them feel less like a "big" pair of pants. So if you're having trouble with their wearability (like some have expressed), you could try a taper.
They're pretty much the perfect pair in every way now, from the fit to fabric and construction.
Worn with FW12 bomber and Ann D creeper derbies.
You measure around your hips (a bit above where you wear your jeans/regular pants) and take the size that the measurement translates to.
For me that was my regular size, but the measurement for these pants is half an inch smaller than all my other jeans and pants. I'm a 48, all my pants measure 34" around the waist, these measure 33.5". It seems like some guys didn't account for that these are worn higher up and thus the waist measurement can be smaller (well, unless you have a gut).
I too am normally a 34" pant, but generally wear a 50 in pretty much everything because I have larger athletic thighs. I'm trying to figure out my size in these and the thigh measurements don't look overly big, but when I see fit pics they seem really roomy and flowy through the thigh. Is this because of the longer rise?
I lift weights too and have built legs and can't wear slim jeans and pants anymore. I have to buy specific cuts to fit my legs or size up in slimmer models. I think you should be fine with the size 48. And yes, the thighs seem smaller on the measurement chart due to the longer rise. Check my fit pic on this page.
