Hi everyone. My first post here. Great board - the amount of knowledge is impressive.

Anyway,  I always have a problem with buying pants in the US. I'm 5'7", size 32, 31.5" inseam and rather slim. I find most pants I buy here to be too full-cut and with too much rise (even with jeans - I prefer Diesel to, say, Levi's). The problem is that even decent Euro pants (Canali/Zegna etc.) are sometimes too full-cut.  Are they using a different cut for the US? I assume yes.

Last winter I was in Munich and picked up a pair of Hiltl pants (they were actually the Euro equivalent to size 31). Besides the impressive quality, they fit me very well right off the rack, even though size was smaller. Anyone knows if they are available here? Any other good maker with slimmer/low-rise cut?

Thanks for your input.
