Sorry i didnt know where to post this blog, but in some stores jeans run in sizes like 32,34,36 and that confuses me. I normally wear a size 5, so what would that make me in 2 digit numbers? like what a 37?
Those sizes are your waist size in inches.
They are waist measurements in inches. As there has been huge inflation of the numerical sizes (a size 5 would once have been too small for any adult), it's probably better to measure your waist rather than rely on conversion tables.
probably a 27 or 28
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
I nominate this as the most boring discussion on A2A

I've noticed women's clothing tend to run by sizes, while I've only ever seen men's expressed in waist x length measurements (ex. 32x30 would be 32in waist, 30in inseam)

Add 21 to the ladies size you normally wear and that is the waist size of the men's jean or pant that will come closest to fitting you. There is some room for error either way here so take your build into consideration. If you have fuller hips and rear you may need a size slightly bigger and if your hips are slim or your rear end is flat then you may need a little smaller. Be honest and you'll save an exchange. Men's jeans are not cut as full in the hips as women's so keep this in mind. That is why sometimes this conversion comes out bigger than your waist is. Remember though you have to fit the biggest part whether it's the waist, the hips, or the rear. Example; You wear a ladies size 12 jean you would try a men's size 33" waist. 12+21=33
hope it helps
