I went back and tried putting them on again tonight...with a bit more muscle (and laying down for the last button) I was able to get them buttoned fully. They fit pretty nicely, but they are slightly snug in the crotch, and the waist is tight as well. I've seen people say that WG's stretch anywhere from 1-2" at the waist, though, and some in other parts as well. I'm thinking I should just keep them. I measured them against the Levi's that I've been wearing and the rise is the same (10"), the thighs are basically the same (11.75" on levi's, 11.50" on WGs).
