Well, I just solved part of my pants mystery: I didn’t outgrow the 36-waist, I outgrew a 34-waist, which explains why I thought I needed to buy a 40-waist but then those turned out to be too big. So, what I need is either a 36 or a 38. Annoyingly, it appears that Prime Wardrobe won’t let me order two of each size, so that I can keep two of whichever works. I’d have to send one back, then order a replacement. It might make more sense to order directly from Wrangler, although the Amazon-sold version and the Wrangler-sold version of these Wranglers are not actually the same. Why does this have to be so complicated, and why can’t Wrangler just sell the same fucking pants on every retailer.
