OK I just bought these for a really REALLY good price, but they are a sz 36. I normally wear sz 34/33 for the waist, but it seems ok in the thighs and hips. I was wondering if I should keep them and take in the waist (along with hemming which I would do anyways), or sell them off. I know they are the new R's BUT it was at a price I could not resist. These are Floyd in Vertigo for those wondering. As you can see there is a big gape in the waist, but they are relaxed at the leg. Opinions please and TIA!

I would just wear a belt for now....if you take in the waist and decide to sell them later you will lose some $ as then they would be majorly altered....

They look fine Art! A lot of my RRs are like that on the waist, I just wear a belt.
Pull it down a little bit though it's kinda bunching up :magwink

They look fine. If the gap on the waist really bugs you, have the waist taken in and leave the rest like it is.

Vertigo is hot. I've been looking for a pair for a while now. They seem to run about half a size small for me. So that 36 isn't really a 36 ;-) (Trying to convince you to keep them lol)

I say just sag 'em (or at least don't fret about them sagging a bit) :p If they're not falling off when you're walking around...keep em for sure. Otherwise just wear a belt :p

PS you should have added a poll option: Keep as it is/wear it with a belt.

If keep, alter them. If you need a good tailor for waist alterations, let me know. There is a tailor in San Jose I trust with my most valued RRs.

Keeep them!!! And I don't think it's necessary that you alter them. A belt could do the trick:D

I love the wash and they definitely look great on you!!!:eyebug They look perfect:D
