My problem is that it's like 45 days (went on vacation) since I purchased them and dont have the original receipt. What kind of luck have you guys had returning stuff to them with just like the credit card info and past their 30 day return policy?
1. About Twisted legs:
It's more likely to happen on raw denim then on prewashed ones. It also depends on how tight you wear your pants, the cut and how you break them in. If you wear them for a long time without washing or soaking them, you can expect some more twisted legs.
There are people, who likes this twisted effect like seen on some old styled pics from cowboys and so on. Those people go for some straight or boot cut styles, where you can get perhaps some more twisted legs,
But still it's very difficult to forecast the amount of twisted legs anyway.
At the end it's not a fault about wrong or bad stitched pants.
2. About sizing down many numbers:
It's also a question of comfort. As an old styled man I would never squeeze my body in a thight pair of jeans. I would probably even sizee up one number and wear a belt to keep the jeans in place. But it's just my persoal style

My current Denime contest project till Oct. 2011:
PS: Always real roughest vintage or raw denim rag items wanted, no matter how ugly, stained, dirty, filthy. Thanks for sustaining Europes largest non commercial denim rag collection founded in the Swiss mountains in 1973 at a time when teachers and parents didn't like rock music, long hair and worn out jeans at all (12'000 items).
The Jeansmusuem encourage people to use their raw denim stuff as long as possible. But just never throwing them away. All your beloved favorite items can survive for ever on a safe place in the Jeansmuseum, what they deserve after a hard and long life.Edited by swiss-jeansfreak - 10/20/11 at 1:16pm
