agreed, but it depends on how hard you wear them. Thighs on my NC were painted on when new back in late June. I listed them on B&S, but when they didn't sell, I figured WTH, squeezed into them, and decided to experiment with how much they'd stretch.

 

Since then I wear them 5 or more days a week - airing out every night -  and whenever possible engage in physical stuff like helping friends move, lots of walking, etc. They have stretched at least 0.5-.75 inches to a snug, but comfortable wear (my personal preference with denim). YMMV, but a commitment to an initial few months of discomfort and regular wear will get some thigh and knee stretch, but obviously not to the extent of waist stretching.

then you didn't size down enough. mine went from 16" to 16.5-16.8 in about a week. granted I dont take care of them. I skate in them, walk around as much as possible, sweat, live in them for as long as possible until its time to give them a wash. 

 

also, i sag them right below my hips, which will definitely stretch

Just got some NS from Need Supply and oh my god they are tight. I'm a 33" waist, so I first tried on 31" but couldn't button anything and barely could squeeze my legs in. Went with 32", which is still tight as hell, I have to suck in but I can button them. In other sad news, they're so tight atm that any fat I didn't know about around my waist is now obviously apparent...

you're not a 33 then bro. i have the "new" cut but I was still able to size down one pretty easily without it being too tight in the waist even at the start

yeah we were talking about the thighs though. you probably just thought the thighs were looser because as the waist stretches you can wear them lower

It's more from the fact that my thighs and quads mean I can't get most jeans on. I wear a 33" in all Uniqlo pants, and those fit perfectly so I'm not sure.

PS came in today they fit fine in the waist, but the thighs are a bit tighter than I like and also stacks way too much.
I know the thighs will probably stretch to my liking like the N&F pair did, probably going to get these hemmed once they do finally stretch

I beg to differ, my 32 PS thighs stretched a ton..

ive never worn uniqlo but is it possible that uniqlo are not tts and that you're maybe a 34-36?

post #11020 of 12939

I'm pretty sure that Uniqlo is not TTS at all, I have a 32 in their selvedge jean that I sag at my hips which are more like 35-36

Very possible. Another pair of jeans I got in a 34" because I couldn't fit my legs through them, but after a couple months of wearing I probably have 2 or 3 extra inches in the waist. Who knows what I am, haven't been able to measure. I've always worn 32" up until this summer when I started working out more, so I pretty much just go with whatever I fit into at this point.

Does stacking look good with APC NS? I have the black raw in 27. How long does it usually take to get good stacks?

Everyone is different. I am a 32, got the 30's and couldn't get in them at all. 31's fit me well, were already normal to loose in the waist but much better in the legs.
