WG's in 32 should have a 34 waist. Just throwing out some possibilities, but either your true waist is 2" larger than you think, the model of WG's you were trying on had atypical measurements, or you weren't trying on WG's.

Then again, you may just have huge thighs. Measure your thighs and get a better understanding of what your TRUE waist is where you wear your jeans, not just 1" under the bellybutton. Given todays slim cuts, there are plenty of guys out there who size by their thigh, not by their waist, as waists can be stretched or belted.

Yeah, so I did some measuring now and it turns out I'm a 33 if I want to wear my jeans up near my waist, and my hips are about a 35. My thighs are 25 inches each. I would say that's pretty huge.

The 33s did fit me yesterday, but the waist wasn't like super tight. That makes sense because if they're actually 35s and my hips are 35, then that's perfect. I think I'll go for the 33s, which shouldn't stretch to me as they're not tight to begin with (in the waist).

The only question is, do I go for the 32s, which are 34s, and hope they stretch out in the thighs? Do N&F even stretch out in the thighs a lot? The waist is one thing, I know.

They will stretch for sure, the tour pair I am wearing are tagged 29 and probably have stretched maybe 3/4 to an inch and a half in the waist and a little less in the thighs, but still substantial stretching.

Thighs never stretch as much as waists. What tends to happen is the waist stretches, jeans ride an 1" lower, and the thighs get looser as the jean is worn lower. if the 32s are as you say, "painted" on your thighs, I would get the 33s and give them a nice hot soak if they are a highly starched model . With 25" thighs I don't think you want denim painted on.

You want thighs with a little give and a waist 1" smaller than the final stretched size. If N&F cannot provide that, don't buy N&F.

The waist on the 33s fits now; not tightly, but it fits. If it stretches another inch the jeans will sag some more, dunno if that will be too much. I have some thinking to do. Thanks for your help, by the way, db_ggmm.

I machine wash both of my N&F oxfords and hang dry. Works fine, they just come out really wrinkled.

I'm thinking of getting a new pair of N&F WGs soon. I'm normally a 30-31, so should I go for 29 or 30? (I fit the 30s and I like 'em, actually. Told the guy I'd be back for purchase, but haven't tried the 29.)

What? Your true waist is the narrowest part of the torso, near the belly button. It's not where you wear your jeans. Of course a low rise jean is going to be a few inches larger around than its labeled waist size.

The problem was solved because I used sentences instead of some silly definition of "true" that no two people agree on.

I had a pair of sz 28 green WGs which I pounded out some pretty severe knee bags on. That was pretty much sized down two as my denims stretch to 32 inches when hip slung. My 29 deep indigo WGs don't have them cause of the extra wiggle room at the knee. It's a function of the size, cut, and material.

Speaking of...

Would anyone like to buy my sz 29 deep indigo WGs? Never wore them all that much, very minimal fading, soaked once to loosen the starch, unhemmed. Waist stretched one inch from the 31 it shipped with to the 32 it is now. I have just never filled out the rise sufficiently to look decent wearing them. $65.

I want to get my Weird Guys hemmed a few inches... should I hot soak them first? What's the typical procedure for soaking? Also, how much shrinkage should I expect?

If you want to shrink them as much as possible before you hem them, which I would recommend, then yeah hot soak before you hem them.
