    - Our pant sizes are labeled according to the American producers standard definded INCH measurement. This for jeans pants well-established size labeling is constructed as follows: the first size specification indicates always the waist size, shortened with W (for waist) and the second specification is the length, shortened with L (length). The first size specification W describes therefore the waist size, the second one L the length of the bootcut or flared pant.

Our STAR flared pants have got a rise of 24 cm (please take care that your own to measure pant has got an equal rise, otherwise a comparison is not possible. The rise defines the upper part of a pant in a significant way).
