N&F Regular Guys are 1 inch bigger than the tag, so a 32 is already 33" in the waist.
Size 30 is actually 31" which puts it two inches shy of a 33" waist, and probably the smallest size I could button. I've read that this is what to shoot for.
As for my usual pants, I like a true 33.
Hm. Good point about the stress on the seams and crotch, but I don't want to compromise the waist.
How much does the waist stretch over time? I'm having trouble finding a firm number.
If the waist only stretches an inch give-or-take then problem solved.
