i think either would work, size 29 will get you a tighter fit. i'm a 32" waist also, and size 30 is good off the bat, but i'd probably get a 29 to allow for about 1" stretching in the waist. For Weirdguys, i size down 1 to get the right fit. I'm normally a 30, 30" at the waist and 32" at the hips. I found that sizing down to a 29 fits me perfectly. I don't think N&F runs true to size for their Weirdguys.
