Crosspost from the N&F thread:
Also, up to three buttons now! Sitting around most of the day doing schoolwork in hopes that the waist will stretch the extra half inch.
Got my N&FxBJs, wore em around as much as I could with a lovely thunderstorm ruining all outdoor plans for the day. I sized down quite a bit, and to be honest, can only button the bottom-most bottom for the time being. I think the fit overall is spot on, minus my waist/hip area that I'm having trouble squeezing into. Apparently this is pretty normal, as they aren't excessively tight anywhere else. Here's to hoping a few nights of uncomfortable sleep will stretch them out enough to fully button the fly. Here's some -rather awful- fit pics I took. Disregard the filthy mirror.
Notes: I don't plan on washing these for as long as I can possibly stand. This is probably going to be around the 8 month mark, as I'm sure they'll be a helluva lot comfier during the cooler months then they have been lately. Quick question, as well- are they any methods to get perfect looking stacks, or is stacking just a by-product of breaking in the jeans, and letting creases fall on their own? Am I over-analyzing?

P.S. - I'll try to get better photos up when I'm home.
