^i bought mine W33 RAW @Take 5. initially, i felt i shoulda sized down 'cuz they seemed a bit loose, but after multiple soaks they've contracted quite nicely. the fabric is loosely weaved, so they will stretch out a bit further, if necessary. if you don't have huge thighs or built on the slim side, you're a candidate for a size down__ if slimmer fit is your preference.
the RAWs will eventually end up about the same measurements as the O/W, imo.

On Self Edge's site it says:

I guess the question is, should I never let these touch water and try to just wear as is without soaking/washing ever. Or will it shrink to 30.5" and then stretch back out to 31.5" (or more) after i wear it 30 or so times?
not wash ever?
is it gonna be your "disposable
you're bound to wash sometime. the weave on these is tight__ can't fcuk around it like the Samurais. the cut & the denim will def bust one's balls... that or you're gonna pop some buttons &/or seams.
heed the signs, man. btw, my BSPs are now my lil' bros'.
