They are actually a little higher rise than my classic fits (size 30). I sized down one for those, and then sized up one (32) for the narrows, because I mistakenly assumed that they would be as low and slim as the FW08 ones. Wrong-o. They are not, and now I am exchanging them for my true size (31). I think that you would do okay with the same size in the classic fits as for the narrow fits (SS09).
