• Hello Trapezius, Actually these pants run a little tight in the waist and a little long in the length. So, to answer your question; you need to order a 36 In the waist and a 30 in the length. This is the safest measurements for you to order. I order these pants a lot and you will like the style and fit. Happy shopping.

  • Thanks The Tailor from Tennesse, the info about ordering a size bigger in the waist and length is very useful and appreciated. But, my question is not about waist or length, rather, about how it fits the legs. That's why I would really appreciate it if someone could measure the width of a pant leg at the bottom, and ideally, at the knee/upper thigh as well.

  • I don't have access to my pants right now but question if it would matter. These pants are labeled as seconds and part of that would appear to be irregular fit. I bought a pair of plan front and one pleated, both have the same "fake" label over the real makers brand and they are different brands so I would not expect to get the same brand pant or fit among different sizes and colors of the plain front (my guess) but for the $10 I paid and cheap shipping rate offered I would say it is worth the risk. My particular pair of pleated pants are perfect and good enough to wear to work while the plain front are barely acceptable and so better for working on my car or painting.

  • They are 34" waist, hemmed to about a 31" length, and are 19" around the bottom of the leg.

  • I am not quite sure which pants you're referring to, but the last ones I bought were Merrell brand, and they measure 9 1/2 inches at the bottom of the leg.

  • The stated sizing is actually pretty much dead on. My 35 X 29 fit perfect. I wish they had more in my size.

  • When the leg is flattened like the picture the width is 9 1/2 inches.

  • Sorry, but the trousers were a back to college purchase for my son and I don't have them to measure.

  • This is for Trapezius, Majie, and Lee: After reading the answers to your collective questions, I thought my head would explode. To everyone else (although my answer is a couple of years late) this is meant to help in the future: what each of these potential buyers needed to know was the "fit" of the pants. This is a technical term and Im surprised that STC did not include this very important info in the description. Fit refers to HOW the pants are constructed. By the way, this info is in the "pants sizing guide". Are they a "relaxed fit" meaning there is extra fabric in the seat, hip and thigh? Are they a "straight fit" meaning no extra fabric from the seat of the pants to the ankle? The pant leg would measure the same distance across all the way down. This is also sometimes referred to as "classic fit". Now in style is "skinny fit" which means the pants are literally almost skin tight and the "rise" is very very short. Rise (another technical term) is the distance from the crotch to the top of the pants, measured in the front.. Have you seen the teens and 20 somethings wearing pants that are half off their backside and so tight on the leg you wonder how they got them on? That is skinny fit. The reason Trapezius was asking for measurements was he/she was trying to figure out the same thing I wish I knew: are these relaxed fit or straight fit? Unless you are a guy (built straight) or a gal who is very thin or has no hips, you need relaxed fit pants. I hope this helps. And I hope STC will put this info in their descriptions in the future. You can tell that even SOME of the people who work here (based on answers Ive read) are not familiar with these terms. Ive been very happy with the help Ive received but having this info up front would save a lot of disappointment and money spent on return postage. Thanks.
