SWEET! (but my pleasure is some other's pain) - inaccurate sizing,

I ordered these in Chinchilla sized 32 x 29. I really measure at 32 x 27.5 but those simply don't exist anywhere and 27 or 28" inseams are just too hard to find. So, I tolerate a little discomfort in the rise and a touch too long jeans as a result or I buy women's in a 6P or 8P and tolerate their tiny pockets.
What makes these "sweet"? They came an inch short in the inseam AND they shrunk a 1/2" -- how convenient for me. They are now 31.5 x 27.5" Perhaps not so convenient if you really needed a 29 inseam.
These are tagged "Made in Cambodia" and "100% cotton" - it's not a heavy denim fabric like the old days though.
I'm sure it has to do with metric conversion and rounding as well as fabric condition before stitching but we might all want to be aware. These are perfect for me, your mileage may vary considerably.
