Must say that they were a little tighter in the tigh area when I first got them. Maybe they stretched a bit due to constant wear.
About the backpocket positioning... To each his own. I like them when they are a bit lower. I think it's part of the model too. Because, even if I wanted the backpocket to sit higher, by pulling the waistband up it can't be done because of the short rise.
The sizing looks great. Looks to be what mine were after a few good wear days. That's what you'll really end up with - these don't stretch much. The mild pain should be gone now, I'm guessing.
Back pockets look great. I'm with uncontrol on the anti-anti-fit, but these jeans really tell you how to wear them.
