That would be the weight of the denim. What you want to is measure your thighs at their widest point, your waist at the navel, desired inseam, and your knee. You then take these measurements and compare them against the measurement tables Tate+Yoko and Blue Owl provide. Pick the jeans that fit the closest, understanding that the thigh measurement is more important than the waist. The jeans will not shrink all that much with soaking but they will stretch in the waist and a very small amount in the thighs. You can wear a belt. Watch out for the crotch though, that shit doesn't stretch at all so don't put your balls in peril. This post is a collection of information that was provided within the last ten pages.
