dang, he owns that store?
frown.gif you don' think it will work out? Maybe it's for the best, I feel like a hipster sometimes when I wear them.

Why dont you post some fit pics so we can help ? I would say 32 would fit post stretch especially since you said the 33s stretched too much. You should always be wearing a belt regardless. Even though mine stretched a bit while wearing s belt, its good preemptive measures

Just received a pair of regular guy ducks. Usually, when I buy jeans that are too long, I either have them chain-stitched or sometimes roll them up or stack them. Since they are too long by about 4.5 inches, I'm more inclined to have about 2 inches removed after I soak them. Should I have them chain-stitched like denim or have a local tailor fix the hem? thanks

When I bought these last year from Blue Owl and wanted to have them altered I was told that the material is too light to handle a chainstitch. Your best bet is to just go to a local tailor.

I also have the regular guy ducks. I think they are great. I cuff mine though

I got my pair of SG< and man are they tight. THe fly area is a bit shorter. I dunno if I should keep it.

I did 33x32 w/ nudies and they stretched out fine, with this SG pair, I"m not sure.

Should I try break it in or just try sell it? Damn.

You probably ordered when I recently picked up our Union Special. I was not comfortable hemming that light weight of fabric early on, but I have gotten better with hemming since then. I can chainstitch the ducks now and can hem basically anything down to around 9oz weight.

Ducks aren't going to stretch a whole inch (at least no pair of ducks or canvas I've ever owned). They also will NOT stretch any significant amount in the top block. If the top block isn't comfortable I'd buy a size up.
