    Taper looks good! See what you mean though, the top block's a bit loose compared to the bottom now. Was thinking I needed a 33 as well. Comparing the measurements just posted to the previous season (http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.php?p=4021185&postcount=88), the new chinos are cut fuller this time around, the thigh and knee measurements are an inch bigger! Wonder why they did this.
    oh wow, i didnt notice this. sounds like you may need to get yours tapered as well :p

    hmmm maybe someone messed up?

    it would be pretty crazy for them to tweak the measurements like that [​IMG]

    well there are only two sizes so far that we can compare:

    33
    old / new
    w - 17 / 17.25
    fr - 12 / 11.25
    br - 13.75 / 14.25
    t - 12.5 / 13
    k - 9 / 9.5
    h - 8.75 / 8.75

    36
    old / new
    w - 19.5 / 18.5
    fr - 12.5 / 12
    br - 14.5 / 15
    t - 13 / 13.5
    k - 9.5 / 9.75
    h - 9 / 9.25

    Yesterday, I tried on the 31 (which is the same size I tried last season) and they did feel/look fuller between the thigh and knee... once the remaining sizes arrive, I'll post numbers for all of us to further inspect.

    either rrl is inconsistant with their cutting or I don't know what I am doing when it comes to measuring... [​IMG] the latter is very possible...

    measurements on Context (which should be the previous seasons delivery) does not match up with our previous or current seasons.. most especially in the thigh

    Can we please have a consensus on how you all would like these to be measured....? I'm about to start [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ing...

    I just want to make sure I am doing this right for you!

    I know Context always post measurements of their pants, but they are not very good at it. 3 different jeans were incorrectly measured and I had to return.

    yeah ive heard complaints about their measurements. they post how they are supposed to do it, but as with anything, there is always human error. plus i am sure they have multiple new/diff employees who do not care/try as hard when doing these measurements
