Been wearing big boys size small and getting the inseam hemmed for a minute but im starting to feel goofy in them and thinking of switching to 93s but the sizing is so wonky. My pitch black secondhand 32s measure 34 waist and I wear 32 waist.. is this how they all fit? Cant decide if I should size down or buy 32 in the new drop for a loose fit without jeans boner

Yes, 93's are for sure vanity sized. I typically get the 32, but I have no problem wearing the size 30 either.

Thanks for confirming. Noticed they got rid of the size chart… hopefully they still do vanity sizing with the latest drop cuz It will be annoying to size down then have to size back up again lol.

If anyone is in the market for baggy corduroy pants that won't break your wallet, Uniqlo U is dropping a pair that looks really good on October 6th. Comes in three colors, most sizes, and has a full size chart, which is so handy when all these other brands make you guess. Only $60 too....

https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/products/E452156-000/00?colorDisplayCode=38&sizeDisplayCode=030

I feel like the product shots don't do these justice either. I have a pair of Uniqlo U cords from their A/W line two years ago and they're one of my favorite pairs of pants. Fit perfectly, super comfortable, high quality cord material, and get a lot of compliments. I've worn them and skated in them a lot over the last two years and they're still going strong.

Just hop on them early if you want your size! The good Uniqlo U stuff used to sell out quickly, but I don't know if they still have the same kind of traction now.

The wide cords I grabbed a year or so back were short…..they seemed less tapered than these…

Finally got to skate in all of these pants I got on sale (crazy sales, so I might be biased and going a bit easy on some of these compared to if I paid anywhere near full price).

From worst to best:

Vans Chino Loose Fit are way too huge. Wider waist than advertised, and comically long. I have to cuff them so many times, and then I just have these giant rings of fabric knocking around my ankles while skating lol. I have no choice but to get them hemmed. They're pretty heavy, so hopefully after hemming them they won't be so bad. They're also a bit loud when walking (crinkling/deep swoosh). These things are REALLY baggy if you're into aesthetic over function. Loosest pair of pants I've ever owned, and won't be wearing them again until I got the waist and legs hemmed. Really love the "Buckthorn Brown" color on these, the look of them is awesome.

Vans Chino Relaxed Fit are also a bit big in the waist (at least 1-1.5 inches bigger than advertised after trying to shrink them), but at least the length is cuff-able for me. These are a comfortable amount of baggy, rather than a performative amount of baggy. Probably what most other brands would consider "loose fit". Would recommend these over the Loose Fit for skating. They have some mobility issues, but will hopefully get better with wear/washes. I think these could be decent skate pants once they loosen up. Will probably get the waist hemmed. A bit heavy for my taste.

For both of those I had to choose between sizing up and down from my true size. In the future would absolutely size down on the Loose Fit, and would probably still size down on the Relaxed Fit. I'm seeing reviews online saying their sizing is really inconsistent even within the same fit, so might want to only buy those if you can try them in person first. Both pants are also a bit stiff, but hopefully that will go away with wear/wash.

Theories Lounge Pants these things are pretty nice. Heavier than the pants below but still lightweight. Not as fluid as as the pants below, but definitely not stiff. Sort of hinder movement a little bit, but not a dealbreaker... I don't know a ton about pants but I think a gusseted crotch is in order here since the stitching is what is hindering my legs having full independent movement. Pretty decent pair of pants though quality wise. My only major complaint is the side pockets are sideways (vertical opening) and start lower on the pants than normal pants. I'm not sure if they are very secure too since they aren't very deep, has me very concerned about my phone since the phone has to sit in it sideways... really unnerving. Pants are pretty loose looking, but it doesn't get in the way of function... only the crotch stitching affects movement. These are decent for skating, but aren't perfect.

Vans Elastic Range Relaxed Elastic are really nice. These ones actually fit true to size. Lightweight, cool, slightly stretchy, and move with you well. A bit crinkly sounding but it doesn't get in the way of movement. Seem like they are lower quality than Theories Lounge, but feel better for skating. Not a fan of how the material feels to touch (2% elastic), but these things move so well. Definitely recommend these for skating, but I'm concerned about durability in regards to friction.

WKND Loosies Ripstop (not denim/cords) are my favorite long pants I've ever skated in. Fit well, feel great, closest thing to skating in shorts I've had from a long pant. Lightweight, cool, and super fluid but not swishy. Good quality.Their back pockets are awful (wide open for pickpocket), but their front pockets are huge (and compartmentalized), so it makes up for it. Sucks the color is not my jam. It has some lame logo embossed(?) into the back pocket, but luckily for my colorway the embossing is the same color as the pants so you can't see it. Hope they release more of these in the future, but especially in black.

No idea on what type of durability these pants will all have. Let me know if anyone has questions about any of them.

This batch of pants has got me hooked on loose/lightweight/cool pants with elastic waists. Anyone have any recommendations for pants like this I should check out next?

My favorite pants ever, maybe. My only beef is that for the price, it should’ve been a heavier/sturdier cord.

The WKND Loosie denim is also super light and comfortable. if you like the ripstop version, you might like the denim. I got the shorts and the pants and I've been wearing both a ton. Very short inseam on the jeans though so buyer beware if you don't like that look.

i pretty much only hit the thriftstore nowadays, but if i get something new, first place i look is uniqlo. those workpants they sell rn look super nice. the only pair of pants i'd want or still need would be a dark blue pair, i might buy in. but they also have a fairly loose looking selvedge jeans on their site. i kind of want to hit the local store and check them out.

Got a pair of polar 93 jeans in the mail. The 32 length seems to be…a bit short, but man, they are quite comfortable.

Nice happy medium in terms of weight and pretty soft.  Stoked to wear them more though my wife was like “oh, well this is a different look for you” in…not a good tone. Haha
