won't stretch much, half an inch is possible with a lot of tension though. There not jeans.

Not as much as jeans, but there is a little stretch to make 'em more comfy

I know this isn't fully a 2011 question but I didn't want to start a new thread.

 

I have a loop terry W + H hoodie purchased from eBay. This is an older one from when they still used Riri zippers. The loop terry material is quite uncomfortable to my skin - in fact this is the most uncomfortable sweatshirt I have ever tried. Has anyone else had this experience? Perhaps washing it with fabric softener would help? Are the 2011 W + H loop terry hoodies any more comfortable?

I have the large loop reverisble hoodie from this season and its one of the softest and most comfortable hoodies I own. Even more both sides of it are comfortable and not irritable to my skin at all. Can't comment on the comfort of the older pieces though.

Snap a quick picture of it. I'm interested to know which hoodie you're talking about.

I've posted this link from the eBay auction. The eBay seller did say that my hoodie had been washed several times. I'm wondering if the material is intrinsicially not soft, or if washing and perhaps drying it incorrectly is responsible for its current rough feel. I will try some fabric softener on it to see what happens

I have that French terry hoodie and although it's not as soft as the tiger fleece, it is by no means uncomfortable in my experience. I'm thinking maybe too much washing and hang drying? I must say though, the heather grey one seems to be softer than the navy and brown ones...maybe I'm just crazy! Anyway, I would give the fabric softener a try.

Can anyone confirm sizing on the skinny raws? Size 30 is more like a 32, right?

Got a bomber in olive, size large, worn once. Also have khaki/tan mac jacket in large as well. Check the sig.

yup, I'm a 32 at the hips and I got the 30. Very tight everywhere, but if that's what you're going for...

Hell fucking no. I'm a 32, bought them in 32, and they are very tight and after 30+ wears they have no stretched out that much. Go TTS unless you're going for the painted on look.

I got the straight raws in my usual w+h size (30) and they haven't stretched out much at all (2 wears)... wish I knew this in advance since I would have sized up one. I hate wearing raws and having the indigo rub off on my shirts if I tuck them in.

Thanks for the heads up. Definitely won't cop.
