I've lost a good 20 lbs. now and for better or worse, the 31" W pants I bought are all somewhat loose fitting. I may even lose 5-10 lbs. more.

I really thought 31" would be perfect but apparently the sizing was still too generous. At what point do you decide you have to size down, or are you willing to deal with slightly baggy clothes?

A lot of my jeans and slacks fit fine, but there are quite a few pieces that are now clearly too big (a blazer or two too wide in the shoulders now by an inch, a few pairs of pants that are 1 or 2" too big, and so on).

If it is loose, size down. How much simpler can it be? Plus a lot of brands have "vanity sizing" so you really need to decide on an individual basis.
