Tough and Lightweight, but Hard to Size

These shorts are great, but I can't quite figure out Carhart's sizing. In Carhart work pants I recently I ordered 31 waist, 32 inseam. They were too big on both counts (in Levis, I'm a 31W 32I). So I ordered a Carhart 30W30I and the pants fit. (If you get out a ruler and measure the actual waist, they're 32s.) So when I ordered the shorts, I ordered a 30W. They were painfully tight, so I returned them for a 31W. They're too big--getting out the ruler again, they're nearly 34W!). Companies really need to work out better accuracy on sizing if they want to get online business. Or maybe that's why these shorts are "irregulars."
