I'm still trying to figure out my "size." It seems to vary from brand to brand. My Calvin Kline's odd trousers fit differently than my suit trousers, so I'm leery of ordering pants on the internet, seems to be little "standardized size".

Size is always hard, and I would only order pants from a store with a good return policy. All the stores mentioned were fantastic, but I would add yoox.com to the mix as well. They have a good return policy and a fairly extensive list of brands. Stuff is also on sale quite often and here is the thread to keep an eye out for good deals and sales from them.

This is a really critical insight and will serve you well for a long time. What fits you best is going to be determined by the actual measurements of the garment (some 32s are sized to fit someone with a 32 inch waist, some offer a bit of vanity sizing and can fit someone with say a 33 inch waist, some are actually 32 inches around the waistband which might fit someone with a 30-31 inch waist. If you can, get actual measurements for things you buy online. They definitely help.

EPIC FAIL - The Pants Fit baldy[1].gif
I will be the first to say it.
Noodles is an idiot stupid dumb@ss.
I guess I never tried on the pants and just assumed that pants that were labeled 52 were too big for me and needed major work done before I can wear them. I punched myself in the face after trying them on. See for yourselves

Looks so good. I both laugh and cry over the fact you could have been wearing this suit once a week for the past 10+ weeks.

Yes to all of that, especially the last part.

Minor alterations on a suit of that quality - good deal.

Now let's see how long it actually takes, haha. Feel like Sotiris is going to be baldy[1].gif in June.

I'll still be amazed if this suit is actually ready and worn before May when it'll be too warm to wear.
