sizing

I'm trying to buy vintage denim. Is a waist measurement the same thing as my "size"?

Particularly with vintage denim, sizing can be tricky. Because vintage denim does not have any stretch, you normally need to account for several inches of 'breathing' room to accommodate any movement in the denim. Nowadays a size 28 may actually measure out to a 30" waist especially if there is stretch.  Therefore you may fit a size 28 in a modern pair of denim, but you may actually have a 30" waist which the stretch accommodates for.

There are different ways of wearing vintage denim. You can go for a more loose fitting look or a more fitted look. This will also help you determine which "waist" size you should get.

Main thing to remember is that you normally need to size up as vintage denim does NOT have ANY stretch. So in case you want to breath or move around, you'll need an inch or two of room. 

Do you list unisex sizing or women's sizing?

If you're shopping under the menswear filter, assume all sizing is unisex. For any clothing under the femme filter, assume the sizing is women's. The best way to get a sense of the correct size is to look at all measurements. This is going to be your best indicator. When shopping vintage, understanding your measurements is the key to successful shopping. :)
