    Are they similarly vanity sized as 501s and 514s or TTS?

    sorry, I can't help with this, I haven't purchased a pair yet. I do have 511 jeans though, if you want I could try and find a tape measure.

    I wear 30s in 501 STF and I wear 32 in these. I have big thighs though and they're for work so i've sized up considerably. I'd size up 1 from your normal waist size because they are "skinny" and they do shrink in the wash.

    Bigger guys suggestion:

    Not sure whether they're available in the US but as an interim measure I picked up some Levi 752 Chinos and sized right down. They're a slim straight cut but heavily vanity sized in the waist/butt so you can size down heavily (3 inches on true waist) and get a pretty slim leg even with largish thighs. For reference I'm pretty much dead on a 37" true waist and the 752 34R "True Chinos "come in at a 37 waist, 24 Thigh, 9.5 Knee 8.25 hem.

    Great price on the Epaulet X Staple Rivet Chino's at Reed Space.http://store.thereedspace.com/EPs+By...et+Chino+.html

    don't think I like the added details for this collab, but good price on something that shouldn't go on sale. OOS in 33 or I'd bite.

    I'm a big fan of the J. Crew slim fit chino. I've got them in a bluish slate grey and light grey, as well as the brown Bowrey cords that are the same fit. You can get them pretty cheap in sales too

    They have selvedge twill 511s in a khaki color on Levis.com for $30. I'd buy a pair if I wasn't on money lockdown right now, but I think they're worth a look.

    The chinchills? I don't think they're selvedge, but they're also showing $79.50 for me. :/

    I have 2 pairs of waders too. I am around 5'10" and they definitely look like waders. The bottom of the leg doesn't really touch the top of my shoe, but they look and fit great anyway.

    My J. Crew khakis in urban slim fit stretch out like crazy. They look great right out of the dryer, but they loosen up after a few wears.

    you'll need to make the leg opening slimmer though. They're like John Travolta wide.

    That does look amazing. How are those sized vs. 511's? Also, what's the rise?
