yes turntabloid is right, i have the BR40025 in 32 and they ran bigger then 32. i wear 34 in most lvc and 30 in lee. so be careful, i would not go with the 34. why dont you order them in japan or ask kiya or bill

Thanks for the links, I bought them in a size 32. They should fit fine if they shrink an inch.

Fardin, any pics of your 42s worn?

Im confused about sizing on the 42 khakis, since I got the impression that they are oversized, but shrink down to tagged, alá some LVC (33s, 37s), which lead me to belive that i should go for my waist size (34), the same size I wear in Lvc...

So, why not? They end up oversized, even after shrinking?

well i am really a bit lazy with pics, but i will get some.

i am also not sure. i think i will try to order some in either 30 or 31. they shrank after i put them in the dryer last year, not really after the first hot wash in the machine and i still have to wear a belt. and as we all know cotton streches out too. so i guess i will try a smaller size next. and compared to denim they are realy cheap so that cool too.

worrying about the same sizing questions

I want to pick up a pair of BR original spec chinos which are the slimmest cut of all the different BR chinos, if im not mistaken. I usually get jeans with actual waist size 29 (not tag size) I should get a size 29 or 30 to account for shrinking? any strectching possible with these bad boys?

well i have those, and not the 42s, so i think you should get your actual size. as said before , i think they are cut a bit oversized. best thing is to ask the shop to measure the bad boys for you. or make sure you can exchange.

The original specs are about 1/2" oversized and don't shrink unless you seriously hot wash them.

Great trousers and excellent quality without the wide legged freakiness of the 42's or 45's.

Still pretty big in the leg tho.

Look good. Go really well with the rest of the outfit, any slimmer and it proportions would look odd

I forgot to measure them before soaking, but here's what they're at now:

Waist: A touch over 32

Front Rise: 13.5

Back Rise: 17.5 (holy shit...)

Leg opening: 9.75

Inseam: 34

Anyone here have the Buzz Rickson Mock Twist chambray? I'm looking to buy one but I've been seeing conflicting measurements. I'd assume I'd get the same size as my standard chambray, but they seem to be cut differently.
