    I would sell. They stretch like an extra size in the waist so you would be forced to wear a belt later on

    They will stretch significantly without a doubt. If you are okay with that, keep them. If not, get a 30.

    Wear a belt then. I have the same issue given the size of my thighs in proportion to my waist.

    I wear a 31 in Rescues (I'm a 34" actual waist and sized down 3 on this cut, and they fit just right), and I actually find the 31 WGs to be a little bit too tight. For me, 32 seems to be the best in WGs, FWIW.

    Obviously. Once the belt is on, however, the pants bunch and sag below the loops. Regardless, I'll see what the tailor can do.

    If 32 is your size in WGs then what are you in SG?

    Also can someone help me out? I'm confused between buying the grey selvedge or the true black. Which one will be more versatile and look better in the office? When I tried on the grey it seemed to me they would work in the office.

    I need help quick on the color and sizing because I have zero patience on placing my order lol.

    Honestly I think people gotta remember that we used to wash our denim every week to shrink them back up. Denim will always stretch to be too large if you don't wear a belt. There is always someone who has gotten another 0.25" of stretch out of their pair than you have. It is just not very often that anyone can manage to wear a denim for 6 months without a belt and it doesn't stretch too large. If there are those who can do that, it's a function of their body type and / or where they are wearing them (ie - I am thinking rail thing + wearing on the hips so when sitting no belly to apply pressure, or whatever).

    Also lol @ guy who got 1.25" stretch out of their thighs, if I read that right. Good god.

    I'm assuming that SG means Skinny Guy, not Slim Guy. I'm usually a 33 in Skinny Guy.

    Both should be fine. I'd say black is slightly dressier and more versatile.

    I'm sure this is answered somewhere in the thread but I can't find it:

    If I wear a 32 in APC New Standards and a 33 in Levis 514s, what size should I go with for Slim Guys? Also, does anyone know of any national department stores or boutiques in the Dallas area that carry them? I tried Nordstrom, Barneys and Saks and didn't see any.

    I wear the same size in Slim Guys that I do in APC NS. For national chain stores that have N&F, also try Neiman Marcus and American Rag.
