I just got these jeans today, tried them on and they fit perfect. The waist is snug, not tight and the pants fit as pictured on the model. I ordered one size down based on the model’s measurements and sizing and that was the right decision. My measurements are exactly the same as size 30, but I ordered a 29, and it is the right size for me. I am glad I went with the smaller size. The jeans look great and I have never had jeans fit this well.
