I have a question, if I wear a 33 waist for the 5ep resin one wash should I size down one since it is going to expand?

I would say no. Go with the size 33. The jeans are slimmer in the top block than any of the other 2 5EP cuts.

Yet another question on stretch and shrink, from an older guy who does not want to look like i am trying too hard.

Tried the 34's on last night and they fit perfectly through the waist, seat, and length wise, but were a bit tight around my thighs and knees.

Will they stretch around the knee and thigh, or am I out of luck?

How much will they shrink after a wash, especially in length. Nervous they will be too short and too tight. Losing weight is not an option (6'3 175 lbs who rides bikes)

Does another 5EP fit in the waist and seat like these, but have a slightly wider/straight leg (only need about a 1/4 inch, maybe)?

Great looking and feeling product.

5EP denim definitely stretches. They will typically stretch between 1/2 and 1 full size depending on the initial fit and the activities you pursue wearing them. The jeans will shrink in the wash (back to original size, and 1" in the leg) in hot, and somewhat less in warm or cold (recommended.) I typically wash mine in cold, and stretch the legs out while they are damp.

Try spraying with water until jean is damp on the inside of the jean at the thigh and knee and then do some squats with them on. The should stretch out and you don't have to worry about them shrinking...think of how your jeans grow when you get caught in the rain..same principle..then you can keep the RIGID look without having to soak or worry about shrinking...just two cents from Godmother.
