I'm with the others here...If you couldn't do the buttons pre-soak, you definitely won't be able to do the buttons post-soak.   It's time to cut your losses and sell them.  Even if they do stretch enough to be able to button, you're more than likely on track for a major blowout.  Denim can stretch, but it's stretching properties aren't infinite.  Size up a few.
Oof.  I'm only down with #2 and #4.  #1 and #3...eesh.
Eh, truth told I do find the V a little bit on the low side.  Certainly not my first choice for V-depth.   That said, though, hair grows back, so cleaning up a bit isn't *really* changing your body to fit the clothes.  It's just grooming.  Optional grooming, sure, but still just grooming.  Trimming is another viable option, with none of the bumps or irritation that can come with waxing or shaving.  I usually take a #2 blade with a trimmer and clean up.  It works well...
^ Bazhad's one of the big dudes at N&F; him and Brandon run the show.  It's very likely that he already knows.
I say just wash 'em.  Do it by hand if you want to be gentle about it.  You might not even need to use detergent to get rid of the smell.   There's a lot of voodoo that gets tacked on to raw denim, but truth told it's about as mundane as it gets.  Water will remove some of the dye.  If you go about washing them gently, they won't lose a whole lot.  They'll still fade after a wash, it won't ruin them.   Plus...you won't smell like fish sauce.  Nobody want's to...
Idealistic, for sure.  But an interesting point.   I don't have any problems with the current model.  I'm happy that ya'll haven't gone the whole "starved and emaciated" route that seems to be so popular with high-fashion brands *dry heave*.  The current model certainly isn't overweight or fat.  He's not the fittest guy in the world, but then again, most Americans generally aren't "athletes".     It might be interesting to see what different people with different builds...
Agreed.  Combining two busy pieces like that is pretty daring, but didn't really pay off here, IMO.  The beret does go well with the jacket though.
Just picked up the black one and a couple of t's my girlfriend.  Thanks for offering these at such great prices...can't wait to give her her t-shirts :).
I have the opposite problem, at 6'2".  Many t-shirts are too short for my torso.  Either that or they tent out in the midsection, or both.     The hemming idea is a solid one.  What do you usually buy?
