Whatever you do, don't size down. I sized down less than with any other raw denim I've owned and they were ludicrously tight. I thought it would be ideal to barely be able to do up the button when new. Instead, they stayed tight for a couple weeks. The I fell down some stairs after a bit of drinking and the top button popped right off. If anyone wants some 0701s cheap, and doesnt mind replacing a button hit me up.
