I like my oversized New Standards. I should wear a 29, or possibly even a 28, but those are 30s. You have to wear them pretty antifit to get the legs to look like that, though--I was in mid-stride, and I don't think the antifit is as apparent in that pic as it is IRL. The NS's in 30 actually fit pretty similar to my Ralfs in a 31 in the legs; the APCs are about an inch larger in circumference at the top of the thighs, the same at the knees, and of course, since they're tapered as opposed to the Ralfs' slight bootcut, noticeably smaller at the leg openings. I "should" be a 30 in Nudies, but instead I have RRDGs in 31, because I liked the fit of the legs better, and a pair of RRDS in 29, turned into a straight leg, which are my pair of skinny jeans. I view waist size as a suggestion.... I love my Samoas, but personally, I'm waiting for boot weather to come back. And sweater weather... jacket weather... coat weather. Frown.
