well, not so much a giant as one might expect but my knuckles do drag from time to time!
actually, my biggest hangup with these was going with the 38 or the 40. based on the comparative differences between the sizes I'd be a 39 but figured I'd be better off sizing up and going with an additional hot/warm soak (or *gasp* a stint in the drier) than hoping to get some additional stretch. plus I truly want to make use of the cinch/buckle as well as throwing on suspenders when inspired. I will be climbing in 'em for work, so a bit of "roominess" won't hurt there either.
length is based on wanting a definite cuff, much like Inoue's initial pics... I'll make sure to get measurements back to @volvo240thebest and the group!
