The idea of sizing down in Goreckis makes my head spin, particularly if you are machine hot wash/tumble drying them on high, which they are absolutely designed for. I have a 33” waist and wear an XXL in the goreckis due to shrinkage (our XXLs fit approximately the same as size L Rothcos).

You obviously know your wardrobe better than me, but the intention of this particular style is to look like a full, milspec cargo.
I mean, I'm pretty slim, so it's not as wild as it sounds. They fit in well beside full cut fatigues and milsurp (the non slim Orslow fatigues, Stan Ray loose fit, British Army 80s era surplus fatigues, 3sixteen fatigues, Royal Navy jungle cargos). They do not look slim or anything, for sure, and the thighs are fuller than most of that list. Inseam is a touch shorter, but I prefer that.

I hear that, we just have no plans to make any more size S than we currently do for reasons that are pretty well documented on this site. Slowest size to turn and exponentially highest return rate.
Can we get more XXL then? They seem to always sell out. I remember mention of XXXL too which would be ideal for me but beggars can’t be choosers.

I have to say, it's still bananas to me that the baby cord stuff isn't purple. haha. like I have the trek pants, and I have to look at them almost like a magic eye print to see the indigo and stop seeing the purp.

Anyone experience shrinkage in their standard issue thermals? Seems mine went a size down after a wash and dry on low/med

I found they do shrink a little, but then stretch out pretty quick once you wear it again.
