I've bought PS shoes at full retail and on sale. You pay a lot for the name, but the shoes are really nice - well constructed, good fit, etc. It's unlikely that you'll find them on sale. You may just have to bite the bullet and spend the cash if you really like them. Those are sweet though. It would kill me to pay retail for them...

They'll stretch where you spray them.
Hang them upside down when they are drying - the weight of the water plus the extra weight of the waistband should help preserve the length. SuperBobo's suggestion works well too - you might do both. In my experience, there is no need to overthink this.
I typically wear an 11.5 US and fit best 10.5UK in most PS stuff. I think it's the width that does it for most people with the "fashion last" stuff. I have a pair of the Starrs in 10UK that fits fine lengthwise, but is slightly narrow (but not uncomfortable) on one of my feet. The Dickens boots, which are not on the fashion last, are a little wider, but I found the 10.5UK to be the best fit.

Not sure if anyone else is in Lost Vegas this week for Magic, Project, or Pool (or the women's lingerie show for that matter), but I thought I would make a few comments about the usual suspects and a few new ones in case anyone else is here. First off, for anyone that used to come to Magic but no longer does, it's probably the right decision: even with 100k+ people, it's still totally dead. Project and Pool are much more interesting, although I would hesitate to say...

Maybe with a pair of short boots or some kind of seriously sick trainers. (not converse) helps if you're covered in tattoos too. I saw a guy with the rolled up jeans (nudies) at Secret Service the other day and I remember taking some mental notes on him, that it looked...

I think a lot of it depends on the cut and weight of the jeans. To my eyes, a lot of WAYWT posters show that certain sleeker dress shoes or boots can and do work with jeans. I wear everything from chucks to chukkas to boots to dress shoes with different pairs of jeans, depending on my mood, the occasion, the weather, and what shirts are clean. That said, there are some dress shoes that are not likely to work for me or anyone.

They'll be a great summer jean. Just make sure to try them on in the store - they don't stretch much and sizing can be a little...
