This is probably a dumb question by just want to be sure, what do You consider true to size? Measurin your waist or measuring your favourite pair of jeans using The BiG method? why do you people measure using the "big" method and then go buy jeans at another place? you do realize each shop measures differently? the big method is not the only way to measure jeans nor will it give you your true waist size. if you want to learn to measure your true waist size i would do a quick google search.
