Jeans sizes are indicated in inches by almost all manufacturers, for example size 30/32. The first digit indicates the waistline. The second digit is the inside leg/inseam length. 1 inch = 2,54cm. Consequently, a wearer with a waist circumference of 81 cm has a 32 trouser-size.
The easiest option is of course is checking out a pair of jeans that you already possess.
