Thought I should indicate I m referring to the raw version.
Tks a million
I'm assuming if the waist isn't tight, there's no reason for it to stretch out?
Ended up going +1 on the 701's (tag 34): perfect fit in the thigh (comfortable now, should be spot on after a hot soak), but I'm swimming in the waist. BIG shows their one wash goes down to 33.75 (from 35.25"raw). I'm just hesitant to keep them as I can't fathom them shrinking that much based on how big they seem now.
I ordered some 202's from BIG in 33, and was going to wait until they arrived to compare fits. But they went from Seattle to LA instead of north to Vancouver, BC.
I'm more just venting in my own frustration in my incomprehension in sizing jeans. I've read all the Momo threads, compared them to my other jeans, and even made up spreadsheets! It's been about 2 years since my last pair of STF (SDA-103, tag 33), and I nailed that sizing. I think I might have f*d up here.
How do the 0702's fit compared to the IH-666s? Are they as tight in the thigh?
