Hi again,

Yes, I've lived in Europe and I understand your frustration. The sizes ARE quite confusing for clothes as well as shoes.

If you ordered your jeans online, they usually provide a chart comparing the European sizes with the American sizes, so you can get the most accurate fit; however, it's always difficult ordering clothing online from anywhere, because you can't try it on. Even here in the States, the same sizes of jeans can vary and fit differently from different stores and different manufacturers.

As far as men's and women's sizes being so different in the States vs. Europe, this IS maddening, but I guess you just take a chance that what you order will fit; however, you always have the option of having a tailor make alterations to the jeans to get the best fit if it's not perfect when it arrives.
