My actual waist measurement is 32" and I fit 30" SlimGuys. The waist should be tight at first, as it will stretch out over time. Find a retail shop in your area and try them on. No amount of checking measurements is true substitute for actually trying them on. I based my advice on actual personal experience (I have owned all three fits) and measurements, not pictures. The RVCA Romero claims 16.5" in the knee, and 16.5" leg opening. That's a straight jean, not tapered. I have never seen a pair of WeirdGuy with the leg opening not smaller than the knee, nor have I ever seen WeirdGuys or SkinnyGuys smaller than size 36 with leg openings that big. Based on the measurements, SlimGuy is the closest N&F fit to the Romero.
