We should probably declare this over so that we can get a challenge set up for this week.
Leather stretches much more easily when wet. Your trees probably stretched them out, which is one of the reasons you're supposed to use newspaper, not trees, for wet shoes.
They both fit incredibly badly. Two sizes too big badly. E-bay is your friend here, I think. It's really a huge shame that you can't return and get the right size, but I really wouldn't even try to tailor. They're way too long- depending on style, they should hit at the belt or halfway between the belt and the crotch. And both of the ones you have are styled to fit on the shorter side.

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. Good as always, pumpkin beer is something I always look forward to with fall.
