German Clothing Sizes

Earlier this month I was in France and picked up a pair of trousers. As I said previously they do not suffer from vanity sizing.

On Boxing day we went shopping and I bought a pair of German trousers. In store they were were sorted by their inch size and I struggled to find a pair small enough but in the end I did find one that fitted well. When I got home I noticed that the size in centimetres (for the European market) was pretty close to correct, it's only the inch size (for the UK and US) market that is out and is a vanity size. I'm pretty sure that it's not a rounding issue, but a deliberate case of vanity sizing for the UK and US markets...
