If the tag tells you to size up because they shrink, and jeans stretch out an inch, then shouldn't you just get whatever feels comfortable before you shrink them?
Lets say I get size 33x36 to size up before shrinking.
Then they shrink to 32x34
BUT then they stretch out an inch to 33 again, right?
So I was thinking of just getting whatever feels comfortable and as tight as possible while still being comfortable to work in.
