My husband has been wearing 34x32 550s for more than 20 years! He loved them! We got two pair last month and immediately noticed that the leg is almost a full inch smaller (tighter!) all the way around. The waist is the same, but the leg is much smaller. Which means that while they're certainly not "skinny" jeans, they're not the "relaxed" they used to be and have this tight look that is no longer a good look. Why they would ever change a 20+ year old product, I'll never understand. But now we're in search of something else.
