I ordered my usual 38 x 34 which I have worn for years. It was HUGE and also too long. The Smoke color is pretty and understated, just as pictured. There is a lot of stretch in the waist band and also the entire garment. But they do not seem to be properly sized, since they fell off my hips they were so big. I returned them and ordered the next size down in waist and length. I am confident the lower down size will fit well. I recommend them, but the sizing is tricky.
