Either way, I don't see it as a big deal.
I'm about to pull the trigger on a pair of the 0701 as you have (at Blue in Green). Am undecided between buying a tagged 30 (31 measured, which is comfortable on me) and a 29 (30 measured, which will be snug but buttonable when new).
How much stretch should I expect in the first month or two? Would you say they stretch by one size or more? Did you notice that the thigh/knee areas stretched more than the waist?
I understand the fact that there will be shrinkage...
Any help would be appreciated - am placing the order on Sunday. Many thanks in advance.
