Fit: lower to medium rise with a waist that tends to run smaller than other pants I wear from Matix, Volcom, and Levi's. They are more slim than they are straight, so if you wear puffy shoes and floppy boxer shorts these are a no-go. The inseam is perfect for me (I am 6'1", 180lb, and have a 34" natural waist). I bought the 34 waist and it fits a little snug so I just wear a shoelace belt to keep things comfortable. I could have have bought the 36 waist and they might be more comfortable on the waist but still would appear slim throughout.
The stretch is what really makes the LRG Slim Straight Chino Pant the awesome pant it is, especially for skating.
I also love that I can wear these anywhere, usually work and just hanging outand they always seem to fit in doing both.
