I like the look of the X-Rotuck jeans in the 80Q wash as well, but they are about the tightest jeans in the Diesel line. Â My original advice would have been to buy a size or two larger, and to forget the idea altogether if you are above, say a 34 or 36 waist, since the jeans will end up just looking sloppy. Â But since you hve the jeans already, wear them around the house, doing chores, whatever. Â This will usually loosen them up somewhat. Â Be aware that they'll never be anything but tight though.
I agree, the 80Q wash is awesome; very unique. The seller advertised them as 'regular slim fit', so I figured they would be on par with the Rabox's I own, instead of a super-slim fit like the Fanker. I'm a 31 waist but can take a 30 in Diesel since they normally seem to run large. I would ebay them, but there are two problems. 1) I only paid $35 with shipping, and a pair in the correct size would be $90+ on ebay. 2) I got them as factory seconds (hence the low price), there is a 3" rip near the fly that was advertised as a 'small hole', I don't think they'd do too well in this state on ebay. I guess I'll just keep them. I'm going to wear them at home all the time, and even sleep in them. I'll also try the shower trick I heard about before (the damp cotton will stretch out). I need to take them to the tailor to get them hemmed 2". I figured the tailor would also be able to use a strip of hemmed fabric to repair the hole as well. Might look kind of weird but the patch might make the jeans look more 'worn'; besides, it would be covered up by my shirt most of the time.
