Contrast size 48 pants specs from two fits available from our Big & Tall denim collection – Williamsburg Grand Street vs South 2nd Street

We take great pride in producing some of the best American made jeans in the market. However, being a high-quality source for stylish men seeking designer jeans for big guys is what really sets us apart. Here we review slim vs straight (relaxed fit) in men’s jeans size 48, comparing the Grand Street to South 2nd Street. Styles are shown in slim camouflage and straight leg selvedge raw denim models, but the fits remain the same, no matter if they are prewashed pants or raw jeans. However, always keep in mind shrinkage and growth factors that come with wearing and caring for raw denim jeans.

The waist opening is the same on both fits. South 2nd measures an additional 1-inch at the seat and ¾-inches at the thigh. The front rise is also 3/4-inch longer. As in all the big men’s jeans, size 48 x 34 has an actual inseam that measures about 36 inches long. If you need, as example size 48 x 28 jeans, make sure to check under our Shop Menu for “Alterations” where we offer hemming services to shorten the inseam length. We would also advise tapering if you are ordering the Grand Street and plan to take more than a few inches off, because the leg opening will get wider the higher the placement.

 Measurements are taken size 48 pants actual production samples. Our recorded specs may differ slightly from jean to jean, so we average and take into consideration the targeted measurements. When comparing sizing, please note, we use total circumference measurements in our fit charts. Others may use 1/2-circumference.
