How long do I have to wear jeans to know how much they'll stretch?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got my new Citizens in the mail yesterday. I tried them on, and they were perfect. I wore them for about two hrs, just around the house, and no noticable stretching. How long before I'll know if they'll stretch more? I ask this because I want to make sure the waist won't get too big on them before I decide for sure to keep them. FWIW, when I tried on a 31 (I got a 32), everyone commented that they looked too tight, and I didn't know if they'd loosen up enough (When I sat down, you could see my peepee in the 31, they were so tight ). The waist closed on those, but, seeing as they aren't raw denim, I figured they wouldn't stretch like raw denim would. However, how many more times should I "test" them to know for sure? BTW, really cool wash, plain indigo, looks like raw, feels like washed (I like that plain wash for dress).

Chicks dig this, a la Robert Plant. Augment with fruit if necessary.

Well, they will stretch like raw denim if you wear them like raw denim. I would not worry about it. They will stretch, yes, but not to the point where a cold soak won't fix it.

Ok. That works for me. I only wear my jeans about four or five times before washing, when I will wash them in cold and hang them. I'm guessing that this should take care of any stretch.

I think this is how jeans like this should fit, but opinions on the fit now, and the probable fit after a wash in cold and hang dry would be appreciated.
