1up, I would say that this cut does not work for you. No shame in this as we all have cuts that do not work. You say you tried the 31, 32 and now the 33. I can't imagine you going down a size to 32. I think that would make your hips and thighs look huge. They already look big in the 33. The lower half looks a little loose in the 33. In conclusion, your top block is too big for this cut. What is your measured waist? You say it is a 32, but I am thinking it is a few inches larger. Hm yeah could be, I've always had jeans in 32 (+/- 1 given the brand, usually the latter) region, but I've also always wore boring relaxed or regular fits, guess these are different and not for me. I've def got some strange proportions though that's for sure. Store only offers store credit on refunds, so maybe I'll just keep these ones and not worry about sizing down.
