I'm new to the denim "culture", I guess. Never really spent more than 35 bucks on some jeans similar to the usual college crowd from AF or AE. Obviously I want to change and have a better look. I want something for a better fit since the jeans I normally wear are too big around the thigh and leg area by a few inches. I'm a short and skinny guy, 5'3" and around 100 pounds (lazy eater). Some jeans that are a good fit, yet relaxed would be good since I'm not ready for some tight fits like some of you guys here. Something like the Rescues look like it's got what I'm looking for, but it's lowest size is like a 28 or 29 and since everyone says to size down, I think thats too big. So I'm thinking about the NS. I normally wear a 27 and I know you're supposed to size down. I don't mind an extra inch around the waist as long as the rest of the fit is relaxed. I guess I can make a better informed decision as long as I know the dimensions of these smaller sizes. The Tobi site lists the dimensions for a size 32, but does anyone have dimensions for a 26 or 27? I tried searching but maybe the key words are too generic or I'm just some noob, but any help would be fantastic. I'm slightly bigger than you (gasp) @ 5'6 and 110lbs. The New Standards in 26 were too big for me...get 25 (which actually measures 27").
