I'm ordinarily a 33 in most pants and my true waist measures to a 33. Are your measurements straight out of the soak or after a bit of wear?
Wondering if I should get the 33 or 34...
Also question on the length... I have midget legs, wear a 30" inseam in most pants. My NS I have been rocking a massive double cuff but would like to go a different look on these... what do folks do in a situation like this? Quandry is compounded by the fact that I live in VT so little access to a good shop to have them hemmed later on down the line. I was thinking of having BiG hot soak and then chain stitch hem to 32" or something?
Rock a short single cuff or a stack and re-evaluate as they shrink more with age?
First pair of "better", jap, unsanforized denim, so thanks in advance for whatever assistance you can provide.

sorry_ 'got too preoccupied lately, so i wasn't able to give a more complete reply. [this] might be too lately, but, anyway [for those who might want to know], the bolded numbers on the left side were post double-soak
meaurements, while the "raw" measurements are on the right side. to add to sir commodore
's reply, BiG will factor in the shrinakage allowance when they hem them raw. so, just make it clear on your hemming instruction that you would like a 32" inseam post soak/wash
.... which only means that if established post wash shrinkage= 2", they'll hem @34" [raw].
