I have a 37" waist so sometimes I waffle between buying a 36" waist or a 38" waist. I got these in the 38" waist and they are a bit loose which is okay with me. I probably could fit in the 36" as these are on the BIG side of 38". Depending on the manufacturer sizes can be quite different. Icebreaker shirts are usually on the small side of their size but these pants are true to size and shrink little after washing. The cloth is heavier than a wool dress pant but lighter than Stormy Kromer thick wool pants. At the STP price these will be great three-season pants for backpacking. The added polyester to the fabric makes the textile much more tear resistant than 100% wool.
