Brooks Brothers - Don't Trust Brooks Brother Sizes
Guys don't have to worry about that. Size 36x32 trousers are 36 inches at the waist and 32 inches for the inseam – except at Brooks Brothers.
Brooks Brothers has "adjusted the fit" of the trousers they sell. A 36 no longer means that guys who wear a 36 can fit into those trousers. The fit is now like it is for women – you have to try them on to see if they fit.
For those guys who are like me who know their size and don't want to try on multiple pairs of trousers when shopping, Brooks Brothers is no longer a place to shop.
