I want them to look like they do on the model on the Self Edge site:http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=71&products_id=408
. I can't pull off the emo skinny jeans look even though I am tall. Since wearing them since yesterday I have noticed them loosening in the calves and waist, but this is 21 oz denim, so I'm doubting they'll loosen up as much as normal selvage.
From the photo on SE, I wouldn't consider them "slim". On the model, they're looking rather skinny (not skin-tight sperm-stealing skinny, but still very trim). Could you post fit pics to get a better idea of how they look on you? Also, 21oz or not, they can and will stretch at least an inch in a couple weeks of wear.
Note: part of the "tightness" is due to it being starched. Wear them to sleep, to the grocery store, and to work for the next week and they'll feel a lot better overall.
