FIT ALTERATIONS BREAKDOWN:
Since the traditional training Gi is intended for maximum mobility, the fit tends to be more boxy than you'd find in your wardrobe at home. So we modified each size to make these pants more form-fitting. After taking into consideration which body type each Gi is suited for, the fit was adjusted by slimming the legs and tapering the fit toward the bottom cuff. While BJJ Gis typically have a roomy crotch for maximum guard play and takedowns, it's a bit much for casual use, and isn't particularly flattering on your booty. So we lifted the crotch up and modified the gusset accordingly.
FIT ADVICE: Considering the alterations mentioned above... If you order your usual Gi size, the alterations have already been made (which is why the Size Guide in the image slideshow is different than our typical Gi Size Guide). So you'd receive a fitted pair of pants that hug the body more closely, with a taper and length akin to a pair of fitted chinos or joggers (as the photos show here). And if you tend to be on the cusp of 2 sizes, it's safe to go for the larger size and shrink down if needed.
If the look shown in the pics is too fitted for you, it's safe to size up a notch. If you're an A2 in 93brand Gis, but prefer a looser relaxed fit compared to the photos shown today, you can grab an A3.
For reference, the model is 6'2" 180 lbs wearing a size A1L. Since he's tall, he also comfortably wears A2L (with A2 also being an appropriate look). The A2L fits him more like a "relaxed fit" pair of pants. Simply a matter of your preference.
While many of the features listed in the bulletpoints above have been present in the last few editions of these pants.
