When you say "dry cleaners," I assume they washed them in water/soap, and didn't actually "dry" clean them, correct? As for restretching raw denim, yes, but it's definitely painful at first. APC denim is sanforized, I'm pretty certain, so you'll be able to do it.
Edit: I guess sanforizing technically minimizes shrinkage, not prevents it totally. But you'll be OK.
OTOH, if they're unhemmed and a size 31, I'll take them off your hands for 50 cents on the dollar:)
