Hey all, so actually got my Okayama Standard's in .. so looks like the American Sixteener's were delayed..
Either way, this is my first pair of raw denim -- when reading the sizing, it mentioned about an inch of stretching in the waist after the 'break in' period. With my Okayama Standard's, I am able to button them all the way, but it is indeed snug.. not as bad when standing but when sitting it is a little uncomfortable. Everything else appears to fit well (thigh, knees, cuff, etc.)
So I guess I'm just making sure there will indeed be stretching and hopefully I won't be that uncomfortable for too long =]
Or, in this case, would you suggest going up a size?
Do squats! Just wear em in and they should break in and stretch
