Just got my first pair of raw denim jeans in the mail today, which are UB. For the first 30 minutes I could only get the bottom two buttons buttoned, but as the day progressed I was able to get all of the buttons done. The jeans are super tight in the waist though. Like they become decently uncomfortable if I leave the top button done for more than an hour. Is this normal with UB, or raw denim in general? I usually wear a 31 waist, so I took the advice given and ordered a 30. I know they'll stretch some, but I'm kinda worried that it won't be enough to ever be comfortable. Any advice in this area?
Also the pockets are SUPER tight, like hurts-my-hands-to-put-into tight. Is there a way to stretch those out at all, or should I get used to using the back pockets (still pretty tight) as my main pockets?
Thanks for any advice you all have to give!
