We just launched a new interview with NC-based furniture makers Arrowhead on our editorial site, Singularities. Read and enjoy here: http://singularities....com/arrowhead/
The tees will stretch a little with wear, but it's also important to note that they will shrink about 1" in length on the first wash so keep that in mind. As to your comment on whether they're too hot for the summertime, in my opinion (which I suppose is slightly biased) I dont think so at all. The weight just gives the fabric a nice heft, but it doesnt make the tshirt hot. It still breathes well since it's 100% cotton. I wear mine through the NYC summertime without issue.
I'd recommend taking the size 33's. We found that this batch of heavyweights sewed down a little small, so a 33 is a true 33 to 33.25" in the waist as opposed to our usual vanity sizing of 1" from tagged size. That being said, this denim stretches more than our flagship 14.5oz so you'll get a good 1.5" of stretch over the first month of wear - so while they'll be snug at first, you can get the tagged 33 to a 34.5" no problem. Hope this helps!
Jordan C.'s 21BSP's at the 2 year mark with 5 washes:
You are correct.

If you don't mind wearing a belt and comfort from day one is key for you, then stick with the 34's. The 33's will stretch 1" in the waist over the first 20 wears, so my personal recommendation would be to stick with those - however, if they are so uncomfortable that you know you won't wear them, better to stick with the 34 and just be ready to wear a belt when the waist stretches eventually.
Stick with it, it takes 2-3 weeks of wear to get maximum stretch, which is 1" in the waist. The fabric will soften noticeably, but that will happen after more extended wear. Stick with them, they will stretch and soften soon enough.
For those of you who've grown fond of the 30BSP fit: next week, the 32BSP arrives at all Self Edge stores. It's the 30BSP fit in our flagship 14.5oz shadow selvedge denim with a brand new patch design courtesy of our buddy Tron of Tanner Goods. We ran 100 pairs of the 32BSP and as of now there aren't any plans to replenish them once they've sold out. Swing by your nearest Self Edge store to check them out, or look for them to post online at selfedge.com soon.
I wore them 6 days a week for the 11 months - every now and then I rotated in an older pair of jeans but altogether that might have added up to 3 weeks. I machine washed them 4 times, so once every 2-3 months.
