I have a pair of the original scout pant that I really like, so I was curious about these jeans. I will say that they are a bit more snug in the waist than my other scout pants, but I'm hoping they stretch out a bit with wear. Other than that, they are really flattering and the stretch is just the right amount. The material is light but still feels high quality. Can't wait to wear these bad boys to work! I don't know exactly what my waist size is, but I'm 5'5", about 135 with a muscular build. I got a size 2, which is the same size I got in the original scout pant.
