Hello all, I'd like some opinions on fit/sizing for me. I just received a pair of the sl-100x that I purchased from a seller on ebay. I went true to size based on the measurements on self edge's site. I am a relatively large guy - 6'4" 220 with a 39" measured waist, so I figured the 38s would be the ticket for me:
However, they seem to be too large for my frame. I can get a full fist in at my waste and feel the denim stretch, and they are no where near close to my legs at all:
Is this just the cut on these, or should I have sized down to a 36? I was thinking that 2" would be a lot to stretch these in the waist. Any hope for these with a hot soak? I thought I'd ask before I ripped off the tags. Probably be throwing these back on ebay shortly.
