Incotex tousers how to recognize fit online?

Does anyone know how to tell what "fit" an Incotex trouser is by looking at its basic measurements as shown on sites like Yoox?

I am in Europe and need to order some Incotex trousers. I know I like the fit of the "regular fit" model Barney's sells in the US, and that the "slim fit" is a little too slim for me. But I notice that Incotex doesn't really use these terms "regular" and "slim". Instead they just talk about whether the legs are tapered ("gamba stretta in fondo") or straight ("gamba tubo") and they give measurements at the leg opening, the same as Yoox does.


If anyone could help me figure out which of these models is the "regular fit" like the ones sold by Barney's, it would be much appreciated!

Ok, so let me rephrase my question:

Has anyone here ordered Incotex trousers online? If so, how did you know what fit you were getting?

Unfortunately, it's a crapshoot.
What I recommend is that you request detailed measurements,
including how you wish to measure the rise- there are different
ways. That said, sizes seems to be somewhat arbitary. In incotex
and Mabitex slim fit I wear 54 (38) In 7 for all mankind and Alberto
jeans I wear 34" Dress slacks 36''. Don't buy anything online without
the guarantee of full cash refund- store credit in next to useless,
unless you buy regularly from them.
