Would welcome advice on the fit to tag size. I'm a 34 inch waist for comfort, 33 inch when fit and off the beer for a few weeks. Should you size up, down or keep to normal tag size?

On a more delicate matter, is there a problem with constriction of 'the boys'. I've experienced a little bit of discomfort during the breaking-in period with Sugar Cane 1947s and Studio D'artisan SD001.

In my experience Sorahikos fit pretty true to size. I'm usually a 31-32 waist size and my size 32's fit beautifully.

I sized up one and find it to be a perfect fit. I had a problem at first with crotch constriction, but it loosened after a couple wears. To aid 'the boys', I splashed a little water on the offending patch of denim and stretched it.

I have the slim sorahiko's one wash although they dont really seem to be slim, more like semislim, It's 8.5 inches at the leg opening for a size 30. I bought the size 30 my true size they seem to run true to size as I tried on two size 30's and a size 29 great staff at 45rpm in new york very friendly. I do feel some pressure down there
although the regular sorahiko's may be different as the slim sorahikos are unisex not sure if the regulars are unisex or not.

Yes, I bought it at the uptown store, I dont think the downtown store carries it. I dont know why the website says online exclusive. Also the zipper hoodie on the website says it's an online excluseive too, but the store had that to when I went two weeks ago.
