A soak isn't necessary.  As for crotch blowouts...size down as little as possible, and avoid being overly active in your jeans.  If they fit perfectly now, use a belt and keep on wearing them.  IME, N&F's don't stretch out on their own too much, and they should keep their shape even through months of wear.
Just got my new tote and another v-neck for my lady...fast as always, excellent as always.  She loves the shirts that I've gotten her so far.  You guys have earned me some serious brownie points without having to spend a fortune ;).   I'm curious, though:  Are there any plans to make any "tall" sizes available?  I've got both a navy crew and a black v neck in large from the newer tapered run...I've found that the navy crew is unwearable due to it's length.  It just...
 If they're anything like the N&F chinos I've had, I wouldn't count on much stretching.  Their chinos are made out of a relatively unforgiving fabric.
    Ditto.  All the girls I work with have noticed my backpack...I've got an olive snap variation.  It's the best backpack I've ever owned...I wish I had something like this back when I was going to school.   Looking forward to the new totes!
  [[SPOILER]]   If they're comfortable in the thighs then I'd say you've got a pretty good fit there.  Personally, I wear 511's in the same size as I wear skinny guys, but the skinny guys do seem to run about a half a size larger than a similarly tagged 511.   Hemming methods aren't all *that* important.  Chain stitching is really more about "authenticity" bragging rights than anything else.  It provides a more pronounced roping effect at the hem as they fade.  If you...
    Ehhh I wouldn't say that's entirely correct.  IME, the double-weave fabrics (linen blend, blanket lined, potentially gauze double weave if the trend continues) run about one size small.   Other than that, there are slight variations depending on the fabric used.  My elephant 2's fit larger than my indigo/indigo's.  My lightweights fit larger than my deep indigos.  They're all in the same ballpark though.
Okies.   So, jeans have no gender.  Truth.   Different genders have different shapes, however.  Thus why there are "men's" jeans and "women's" jeans.   So, you don't like men's jeans.  You say they have no style.  You vastly prefer womens jeans.  This seems to imply that women's jeans fit you better.  Thus, you're shaped like a woman.   ...cool?
^@ cbxk   Here's a good explanation:   http://www.rawrdenim.com/2011/04/slub-slubby-slubbiness-what-does-it-mean/   ^@ Jump Around   You can soak, or you can not soak.  95% of weird guy models are sanforized, which means that they won't shrink much in a wash.  Soaking will get rid of some of the starch in the jeans and will soften them up faster.  Not soaking will give you more defined creases as you wear them.
^ (reply to tdhk) That depends,  From what I've read the fabric used on the heritages is somewhat similar to that used on the oni collabs.  The momo collabs have a much more even appearance: they're nowhere near as streaky or slubby.   If money isn't a factor, I'd get the momo's for some diversity.  However, if you find yourself really digging the slubby texture of the onis, you might like the japan heritages more.    
That all depends.  Part of the whole "don't wash your jeans" thing is the fact that washing regularly has a tendency to dull the color of...well...any article of clothing.  If you want to keep 'em looking good for as long as possible, wash only when they need it and as gently as possible.
