Well usually an inch and 1/2, but it would have given you .5 at the thigh which could have made a world of difference. I dont know enough about your measurements so I can't say with out a doubt that they would have worked, but chances are a bigger size would have fit much better. That, or the SG just doesn't suit your build. The weird guy has a looser thigh, a vanity sized waist and tapers from the knee all the way down. You may have better luck with that.
For reference, I normally wear my jeans with a 29.5 inch waist actual measurements. The tagged 28 has a 29 so the waist isn't really a problem since it will stretch, but since the seat or top block on the SG is super fitted I size up to a size 29 and wear a belt. My man parts are happier and the fit is perfect. I have currently in my closet a pair of sized 28 sg that I almost never wear now because the 29's fit so much better, it's true that they will stretch but even after all that the top block is always going to be constricting if you don't size right.
Hope this helped and best of luck.
