TTS is just as much bullshit as vanity sizing. there's no real standard and there really can't be since sizing in itself is subjective. waist measurements can be taken anywhere from the top of the hips to the belly button depending on the rise, and then you have to factor in how YOU want to wear them...there's no magical number we can all refer to and even though we scour for accurate and complete measurements we're still taking an educated guess at best.
that being said, the waist measurement is probably the LEAST important one to me when i'm looking for a new pair.
it's kinda like buying a car: it looks great in pictures and all the numbers add up on paper, but are you sure you want to buy it before you take a test drive? i mean, there's a million tiny little things you could totally hate about it...
