Seriously? The point of Skinny Guy is the skinny fit. If you are going up two sizes why aren't you just wearing a different cut? There's no way those can even fit your waist without a belt if you are genuinely going up two from your waist size. I thought part of the appeal of the button closure, besides the better construction, was that they button right to your waist. Why not just wear weird guys or slim guys if you are sizing up? Its the best fit Ive found in NF for me. I own a lot of jeans in 31(mainly nudies) and couldn't even button the skinny guys so I sized up to a 33. I wasn't looking for a skin tight fit but for something a lil tighter then some weird guys. Worked for me.
