I bought a pair of slim fit trousers from Farah Vintage in a size 32 and they fit closer to a 34, nearly a full size up. All other measurements are perfect except for the waist. The rise is great, hips diameter of thighs and legs fall perfect. I suppose I could wear them nicely with a belt, but without they sag down to my crotch. I don't want to have to go through the hassle of shipping back to the UK and the size I'd otherwise exchange for (30 S) appears sold out, so I'll likely take these into the tailors. I could comfortably fit my middle and index fingers (with a cm or more to spare) in the space between my waistline and the trousers. I wonder if it would be an easy job to take them in 1.5-2" or if altering the waist size would affect the rear and crotch area of the pants? Any suggestions... Should I just send them back and try to find them elsewhere? I figure the cost of tailoring would probably not be far off from the cost of return shipping to the UK, plus the hassle of repurchasing elsewhere. I have a ton of stuff to bring in to the tailor for fitting anyway...
