I'm about 5'8" and wear 34 waist/30 inseam jeans and I got last years Annex pants in size XL and absolutely hated how big they were. I want to replace them because they go with my jacket and I know that SB has trimmed down the freedom fit, but by how much?
Should I go large or medium with the divisions?
Go with the mediums my man. I don't like to super gangster baggy either. I'm 6' even and i wear a medium pant. The smalls are sized to fit a tad bit smaller than you are, i don't think you would be stoked on them. Mediums look to be right because the size of your waist.
