These jeans are a full size too small. I ordered a 32 inch waist because that is always my size in jeans. They were small fitting so I returned them at my expense. I had mentioned to customer care that a 32 inch pair of levis fits me perfectly but got the reply these aren't levis. Thanks but I can read. I still liked the jeans for the price and ordered a second pair one size bigger and they fit fine. My second time wearing them the button snapped where it connects to the back pin when I was putting it through the button hole. For a pair of protective pants this doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the overall quality.
