Trouser Sizing/ Shrinkage: Our trousers are sized like modern pants- they lie to make you feel thinner. They run about one size larger than marked. Levi's, Docker's, and Wranglers are the same way.
So, what size do I wear?
1. If you base your size on casual trousers (Gap jeans, LL Bean, J Crew, Banana Republic, Walmart, Docker's, etc, etc) and wear a 34 in those, then our 34 will work. (Our "34" measure 35.5 -36 actual).
2. However, if you are basing it on original WWII trousers, suit pants, or a tape measure (which do not lie), then you can wear our 32.
3. The waist does not shrink appreciably when washed.
WARNING! Inseams do shrink! Like all cotton pants (or shirts) the inseam will shrink when washed! Our inseams are accurate, 34" when new. Final shrinkage is 1.5-2 inches on the inseams. Do not hem them until after you have washed them!
WASHED OR ALTERED GARMENTS ARE NOT RETURNABLE.
