Yah these are 28s.. I tried 27 and I couldn't button up the belly and 29 was more loose comfortable fit like the preview diesel fit pix..
I really recommend give it a try when you are at the stores!!
I gotta say the thighs fit similar to my shioner 801A, and knee down is a bit slimmer than thavar but not skinny tight like some tepphar washes.
And the back pocket is lower like krooley..
