What say ye Samurai Lovers, keep em or send em back?
i have that exact cut in a size 34 and i can tell you the upper-thigh will come in about a 1/4 - 1/2 inch depending on how you wash/dry them. they will stretch back out a little bit as well. if they feel tight to you now i would go up to a 34 and you will get an extra 1/4 inch in upper-thigh. dont worry about the waist so much ... getting a good upper-thigh fit is much more important with that cut.
by no means am i an "expert" but i have owned two different pair of 710s (the indigo and black knight) so i know how they shrink/stretch, unless that lot is way different from the last lot which is unlikely.
btw, i think those look good now so you may want to go to a 34 and shrink the hell out of them. you should be okay if you keep the 33 but i would cold wash/soak them and plan to stretch them out ... hang to dry and dont wear a belt, etc. while you are stretching them.
let us know what you do and make sure to post post soak/wash pics.
