Do these dress pants not fit correct?

Really? That's crazy!; why would that be the case?
Is it possible for me to measure this myself to verify?
Should pant size be equal to your waist measurement exactly? or would you go slightly smaller to ensure a more snug fit?

Yes that makes sense I will probably go to my tailor and have them pin them and adjust the waist.
Vanity sizing my friend.

Just measure the waistband and see for yourself. I could be wrong but it is a common enough practice. Trousers should ideally measure the same as where they sit on your body. If they are cut to sit at your waist then ideally the trouser waist = your waist. People usually fluctuate a bit in waist size so there isn’t usually much point in trying to be too precise. This is what belts or side adjusters are for. Suspenders are the most forgiving.
