As some have noted, with about a 9'' front rise, these probably sit closer to the hips than the actual waist, which explains the extra 1Â½'' vs. tagged size. I guess these do fit tts

That's good to know. They never got me any measurements when I called and emailed them.
It is annoying that they aren't true to size. I suppose because those going by waist measurement will need them bigger to wear at hips. However, should just size according to true measurements and let people decide themselves.
Still, it makes it so their smallest size (30) will be way too big on me if measuring 31.5" and that's frustrating.
Oh well. It looks like the J.Crew Urban Slim Fit is for me. They are not true to size either, but they go down to 28" (30.25" measured). It's still an inch too large at 30.25, but best I'm gonna get for slim fit chinos it seems.
