I sized down one from my regular waist. Two horrible photos follow -- just wanted to get these up on a whim.

They look good. The only concern I would have is that you only sized down one. I imagine you measured your waist where you wear your jeans and then subtracted one? If that's what you did most people size down considerably more, 3-4, to account for vanity sizing and stretching.
I haven't owned by black selvage petits very long, but they seem to stretch more and quicker than the raw indigos. I'm glad I sized down 4.

I like the fit of the waist now and know it will stretch some but don't want it to get crazy. There's not a lot of tension in this area so will it still stretch the consensus 2"?
The length is a little long on me as I like to wear my jeans with a very small cuff a little above the ankle. So currently the legs are all draped weird and bunched around the knee and ankle. Will hemming help the rest of the leg settle as I'm going for a no break look?
As I said the thighs are a little tight now but I want them to stay around where the currently are and not stretch much. I want a clean no break and no bulging/giant ruffles on the leg look. Will this get messed up as I wear them?
Please help me out with this before I go crazy wondering if I got the right ones. Thanks!
We can't really predict exactly how much they'll stretch. That will depend on your waist size, how you wear them, how often you wear them, etc. Best way to limit the amount they'll stretch in the waist is to always wear a belt with them. Unless you really wear them hard, I wouldn't expect a lot of stretching, as you only sized down 2, which accounts for their vanity increase so there shouldn't be too much tension in the waist leading to a lot of stretching.
You can hem them to get rid of the stacks, but make sure to test it out to get a rough idea of what they'll look like. That's important since they are tapered, and taking anything off can change the ook of the jeans. Fold how much you want off into the jeans, put on a pair of shoes, and see how you like the look. Good luck.
