Question: How much can one expect these to stretch out in the thighs and the crotch area, and how long does it take?
It seems the waistband has stretched out quite a bit (I'm a 28" waist and ordered the NS 26's) but they're still very tight around the thighs. I have about a 19" thigh - not huge but I do leg workouts once a week as part of my weight lifting routine.
I've been wearing them for about 5 days (no sleeping in them though).
Still fit a lot slimmer than how I would like - not a skinny jeans guy.
Otherwise - had them hemmed today, and really like how they turned out. Kept them a little long since it's my first pair of raw denim and I can always have them re-hemmed.
