For starters, I am about 5'9", close to 150 lbs. Depending on the brand and the cut, I can be anywhere from a size 30-33 waist, but most of my jeans are size 31 waist. I got these in a 32 because I've heard that they can be super slim, and they fit perfectly (well, except for the fact that I'll have to hem the pant legs, but that's typical for me).The feel of the material is more chino-like than denim-like, but I actually like that. Another happy surprise is that the rise seems higher than any of my other jeans, even though the rise is listed at 9 inches. Since I, unlike most men, have a bit of a rear end, higher rises work better for me. The comfort is great just enough give to prevent constricting and chafing. Overall, this jean is well worth the price and my new favorite pair.
