    Question for the collective...searched the thread, but still a bit confused.

    Looking to pick up a pair of SL100s, and can't decide if I should get 32s or 33s. My true waist is 33, but I typically need a thigh of at least 11.75. So, should I go with the 33s, which would be the best fit for my thighs but potentially loose in the top block post-stretch, or go for the 32s and hope that the thighs stretch enough?

    If it's helpful, APC Rescues in size 30 have worked well for me in the past.

    Any advice would be most appreciated.

    I believe the Self Edge thigh measurements are taken 1" below the crotch (as opposed to right at the crotch). I think the 11.5" measurement on the 32 translates to about a 12" measurement at the crotch.

    I am a true 32 and the waist on my SL-100x measured 31.5" new, and the thigh (at the crotch) was ~11.75". These were a tagged 30 but they have modified the cut and measurements since then, so I don't know how applicable they are; however, if I were to purchase another pair I would go with a 31 based on the current measurements.

    I would recommend you to go with a a 32.

    maltess - you're in the right size. give them two weeks and they will stretch out comfortably.

    Really appreciate the help, and good to know about SE's method for thigh measurements. Sounds like 32 is right for me.

    1) If there is only one person you should listen to for advice on 3Sixteen, it's Andrew (ajchen). [​IMG]

    2) Mine stretched out comfortably after wearing them in the house for a day or two. Initially, I could just about button them up (I picked a day when I didn't pig out, which was hard), and now they are more comfy, including the ass area. I just need to get them chainstitched but am not able to get them done locally. [​IMG]

    Received my ST-100's today and would appreciate an opinion on the fit.

    I got them in a 31 (true waist size). In my opinion, they fit pretty well in the hips, but there is definitely a good inch, maybe 1.5 inches in the actual waist. Standing straight, there is definitely some loose material in the back.

    Opinions?

    Oh, and this being my first pair of quality damn, I'm frickin impressed. Doubt I'll be able to go back after this.

    exchange it for a 30, or even a 29 if you want it to fit real slim. it's best to go by the waist measurements when sizing rather than the tagged size.

    for reference I have a 30" true waist and wear a 28 in the ST-210.
