These were made for me!

This is my third pair of Carhards (others of different styles) and am now a devotee of this (misunderstood?) brand. I've always thought of it as a trade brand, i.e. utilitarian and indestructible but little concern for fashion. Boy, do I feel stupid now. I'm 5'10", high waist/short torso, 34L about 135-140lbs. I discovered that I fit the size 6 in the other styles and ordered 28/36L and 27/34L since that's all that was available. Perfectly fitted 28 look like they were made for me and just a little long and 27 were barely buttoned snug (but will keep in case of some crazy weight loss). I paired my now new skinny jeans with the Carhardt removable buckle belt in S and it fit perfectly on the last hole and already got a ton of complements on the combo. (Wore to work on a casual Friday and paired with Sierra Trading Co's Twisted X Top Hand cowboy boots and a suede blazer. Very Ralph Lauren looking. This is not a great fit for someone who has bigger or more muscular thighs compared to the waist size (which is really more like hip size in these), does not like jeans which sit right on the hip (but if light muffin top? no problem!), likes more than 2% stretch or is super curvy. They feel fitted without choking off circulation when sitting, denim is beautifully smooth and are designed better than most designer/couture brands which cost 2-4 times. Well worth ordering a longer pair and shortening, particularly at the price. Just ordered another pair. Thank you STC!
