I agree. Downside to the pant being too short is worse than it being too long.
I measured my waist in 3 places last night and I was actually a 33"-33 1/4" so makes even more sense for me to be in a 50.
You have to watch with pants in a +2 or Tall. If they are only extending the legs then they still have hip, tailbone, and thigh pads of a pant that was designed for someone ~5'7"-5'11" most likely. That can be an issue for 6' plus guys if you're talking Small, 46, or 48.
50's were the right choice for me. Thanks for all the help.
