    What about the stretch in the thighs and crotch? I finally got a pair but due to the limited availability I took a chance and went down one size smaller than I anticipated would fit best (for comparison sake, this is two sizes smaller than I typically am in low straight). Surprisingly, the waist already fits okay and is not particularly tight (at least in comparison to some jeans I have sized down on). I am more concerned about the fit in my thighs which are skin tight and have the possibility of showing some man camel toe action at times. Have you all found that with wear the pants will stretch and look fine, or does this tend to be indicative of sizing down too much?

    Hrmm how is this possible? If for example you wear a 30 in low straights that would be 32-33" actual. The chinos would be 28 if you sized down two, and would measure about 29". You shouldn't even be able to get them on?

    IMO you should be be to move comfortably . No one should wear pants where the material is stressing across the crotch.

    I agree it seems a bit off in comparison to common suggested sizing, but I had ordered them prior to hearing that sizing was different this season. Based off of info details from past seasons and finding an old 32 to try on (which was definitely loose), I had guessed 31 would be optimal for me but that 30 might work. Based off of the new sizing, I would have not felt 30 would work, but I guess I may have lost a bit of weight. Plus, although I wear 32s in the low straight, they are not that tight even from the start. So, perhaps I could do a 31 in them if I ever found that size. Regardless the chinos fit fine in the waist but look tighter than I would prefer in the upper thighs and backside (comfort and movement -wise it is okay). My guess is that those areas will not stretch out to look fine like a waist might because the stress is not as evenly distributed, but I figured that I would check and see what people here have observed from their own experience before deciding to put them up for sale.

    what boots are those? look pretty neat.

    is the material between the LE and the current noticeably different?
