Does anybody know what their size 14 is in inches? I'm looking for something around a 26/27x28/29; but the lowest I've seen anything in the men's section is a 28x28. Thanks.

Huh? Do you have ovaries? A US women's size 14 is between 30"--31" waist depending on the brand etc.--which is bigger than what you seem to want.

How tall / how much do you weigh? If you are over 5 foot and have a penis, I find it hard to believe you can fit into a 26x28 511.

The size is for the boys section, once you get out of mens they don't list it by inches anymore (at least online). I'm 5'5' and yes, male, but the 28s I have right now no longer fit well and a belt isn't doing enough. A 27 would be fine, but I'm not sure if they come in odd numbers, the sizes I saw were all even numbers.

From a pair of 514s: 16 Regular is 28/28, I believe a 16 Slim is 27/29. I think their size to waist/inseam relationship is the same from model to model, so that should give you at least a starting point. Hope this helps.

I have never seen a 511 in 27. Boys conversion depends if its "slim" or "regular". A 14 regular should be 27" waist, but the inseam can vary slightly. A 14 regular is designed for a healthy 13 or 14 year old that weighs about 100 pounds and stands about 5'.

Thanks for the help, I guess a 16 slim is what I should look for.
