Gustin stock sale/grab bag is up and running.
Reub, did you soak those yet? Are you planning to?Mine are the same size you bought, but I probably have a few pounds on you. Mine are snug; any tighter and they'd be unwearable. Which makes me worried about soaking or washing them. If I could be confident they'd stretch back out to this waist size (or ideally a hair bigger), I'd be OK, but as is I'm wondering if I should have gone with a 36.Denim people, how much are these things gonna shrink/stretch on me?
