Barney's Co-Op on Halsted closed around January earlier this year.
I was so sad that they ran out of my size in the olive twill; so sad that I just bought more stuff to compensate. Got the heavyweight stone yesterday, just waiting on the gunmetal canvas and horsehide 685s.

Is the denim unsanforized? If yes, then you should be soaking them anyway. Even if the denim is sanforized, soaking while have cause some minimal shrinkage. So when you say "a little large" how "large" do you actually mean? The "no washing until your jeans can fell entire armies because of their stench" rule is really more of a guideline, suggestion, whatever. The dye will just fade differently* and the denim will be less stiff after that first soak (unless you take...
NS 31 would probably be better based off what you've said. Generally, you size down 2 for APC to account for the vanity sizing; further sizing down (or up) would depend on what you're comfortable with. You currently seem to wear 34" actual waist but sound comfortable and/or willing to wear 33" actual. NS 31 would most closely resemble Nudie Slim Jim post-stretch. As far as the saggy ass is concerned, that'll depend on you and how loose the jeans are to begin with.
If you mean these, they're rinsed, so not "raw"; you won't lose too much in the inseam by washing them. You could wash them once and get that minimal shrinkage out of the way and then hem them. And you can generally stretch the inseam while it's still damp to gain back the lost length. Since they're LL Bean, I'm going to categorically advise you that stacking probably won't look very good because they're likely not cut in a way that would lend to that.

If the leather's genuinely cracked and not creased (like it seems to be), I'd say return them. Granted, I don't really know how Amazon's return policy applies to shoes (or this specific situation).
Hopefully, when you wrote "selvage" you actually meant "raw" or "unwashed" because they're not the same, and not really even related. (Note: I'm not disputing that they're selvage, just that that detail is fairly immaterial to this discussion.) As for the length, you have a couple of options. Obviously, if they're too long and you don't like cuffing, then you should get them hemmed (depending on where you got them from, the store may offer hemming services, which would...
I'd guess it's something someone tried on and returned and Amazon just sold it again. The soles (the sides, anyway) look too clean for outside wear. Honestly, they'll get beaten up enough that these initial marks shouldn't be a problem. And you can basically massage the orange streaks back to brown. Though, if the creases on the vamp, etc. don't match up with your own, that could be an issue.
