Right, but I got +2's. Figure the pants are roughly 1/3 of your overall height so that part makes sense. 2" x 3= 6". I'm 6" taller than you so the 50's in a +2 should be roughly the same length on me as a the 50 regulars are on you.

As to the waist size, they are a little tight on you (36") waist and a little loose on me (32") waist. A 49 +2" would have been perfect for me, but oh well. The pants look durable so maybe I'll have them for 10 years and be more of a 34" by then.

Thanks for all the help. Overall you were right. The 48's did actually fit more like the way they should. I just think the 50's are going to protect that hip a bit more
