I am a little worried about the length (since I would rather have just bought too long and hemmed) but there is a ton of extra there...I don't like my jeans to be dragging on the floor and when I cuffed almost 4" they felt ok...so I am leaning towards keeping them. Any other advice? Teger want to chime in(your advice worked for the last pair)?
Yes, they can stretch out to the tagged size; I'm a true 30 waist and I have a pair of STFs in 30 that fit perfectly. You might want to consider shrinking them by sitting in a warm bath while wearing them, as it'll prevent the waist from shrinking below your true waist. It's what I did, anyway.

I love the look but not the back pockets, I'm thinking I can remove the stitching much like I remove pockets from shirts but don't know if anyone has had experience with this. I did a search but didn't find anything............
You can remove the stitching the same way you remove stitching on anything else: with a seam ripper, or a small knife or pair of scissors.
