    Ach kak!
    Just gave this a second though...
    300EUR plunge into darkness...
    I'm off to Japan next spring...
    They might have something similar for these to try one...
    Pass...

    FokkedyFok! I'm torn apart!
    Really lovely jeans...but too much of a risk.

    I have no idea on what's available in JP in strange coloured jeans, but I think I better check that path first.

    Anyway, thanks heaps guys. Much appreciate your kind replies.

    If you wear Incotex, you won't have any problem with the slim cuts.
    haaa, good point. I cant. The one pair I do have is too big in the waist because I had to keep sizing up to get my waist to fit

    1 year is too long of a time to go without your pair of RRL. Once in a while you will find a decent seller on ebay who has reasonable prices, but also knows how to measure and is also willing to accommodate your suspicious curiosity of RRL sizing. Ime, silviob###(cant remember the numbers after "silvio) is fairly accommodating and has been selling RRL for years so he know his shit

    Dear Mr Nuts, ;-)

    This is feeding my paranoia even more!
    I need to try this stuff on before I pull the trigger.
    That bloody ocean is a tad on the way, but...what the hell.

    Thanks a stack you guys.
    Will try to score in JP.
    If not succesful...new try with RRL then.

    Have a nice weekend gentlemen.

    Love the shoes!
    Not as hugging of a fit as I'd prefer, but very nice nevertheless.
    My hams are apparently pretty much like yours...well developed.
    I also think you are taller than me (I'm 182cms..what the fokever that might be in US).
    32"/34-36"(Yes... I fold and do not stack you twats!) would prolly be bang on.

    TaTa,

    I bought a pair of low straight 31/30's that dont quite fit like I had hoped - anyone interested in picking them up for $150 or trading for a 32 waist?

    low straight, slim, and slim boots, my advice is size for the thighs. the rise is low enough that the waist is gonna stretch out a lot no matter what due to sitting, bending to tie shoes, etc.

    accounting for stretch, my ideal low straight waist size is 30 but i went with 31 because there's more upper thigh room. the 30s would have stretched out to be perfect in the waist but not enough otherwise and choked my giant nads. the 31s are a tad bit big in the waist but it's worth it for the thigh room. plus, i can tuck a shirt into it.

    I second grundle's advice essentially ignoring everything but the thigh measurement, however, I will add that he has lumberjack thighs that couldn't fit down two sizes in LS like a real man like me.

    The low straights fit tight in the thighs for me already while the waist is a bit loose. Pretty much what grundle said, if you size for the waist, the thighs just won't stretch out enough to be comfortable. I'm guessing the only other RRL cut one with big thighs could possibly wear are the regular straights. Judging from the measurements, slims / bootcuts would be torture on the boys.

    I got lucky and found a slim bootcut on here recently W31. The thigh measurement was 11.5 which is bigger than the usual 10.5-11 you find in this waist size. It ended up working perfectly since I need at least an 11.5 thigh. I have sent back so many pairs of slim bootcuts on ebay so this was a nice surprise.

    The tight thigh and low rise is a tough fit if you have a smaller waist but decent sized thighs.

    I do not like jeans that are super tight. I have always felt that they should never restrict your movement.
