I had bought my daughter the wide leg mid rise chinos that appear identical to these. They were a perfect fit. Generally trousers are too loose in the waist and too tight down the leg but these were perfect. So I immediately bought two pairs of what appeared to be the same model. Appeared. Even the name was the same with the addition of "cropped" to the first pair. These are way too tight at the waist, by about 2 cm. Lands end, you sell by catalogue. How are we to figure out sizes if you cut them differently on a model that appears the same? If the cut is different, which is fine, since everyone is different, then put that in the description - "these are cut narrower in the waist" or Wider in the hips" or some other indication. The cropped ones were too tight but after washing they stretched (yes) and then fit perfectly. These no. Consistency in fit creates customer loyalty. It's probably one of the most important things for online shoppers, besides of course quality or style.
