Should I size up to 32 on the Truman? Every stockist having different measurements is so annoying!
Hi. I usually wear size 30 yes, that's for all EG pants, fatigues, cinch, usn, matt etc. Some pants are a little tighter than others when first putting them on but from my experience they've always had a little to give - after 1-2 weeks wear all of them have loosened up a bit, cord, twill, oxford, they've always been a little tight to begin with but got nicely worn in after some time.
The worsted wool flannel cinch pants from this season I took a 30 in as well, at first try they were very good over all but a little little tight around the waist, I haven't worn them enough yet to have them broken in because of the weather but i'm hoping they will loosen up just like the others. I'm 5'9" 154.
TBB states to go with your usual waist size so that's what I did this time as well. Hoping to receive the pants on friday, I can provide a better answer by then after i've tried them on. SS13 shorts I had to size up to 32 but that was because shorts that season ran really small. Hope that helps a little.
