I wondering if you didn't go far down enough because they look skin tight on Sid.
Actually, they really do ride up, contrary to how the pic looks, and I can definitely feel it. Or is that different than what you were referring to? And I didn't size down further because otherwise, the waist would be too small. I'm normally a 29W in Levi's and other stuff. Are people supposed to go down dramatically and then somehow get the waist lengthened so that they can actually button it? Maybe my hips aren't proportional to the slimness of my legs? EDIT: Oh wow, a 28W, 39L is the smallest that pair comes in, anyway (at least, from Self Edge). I couldn't size down even if I wanted to.
