Well I have a couple of pairs of this jean, in two sizes; the first were a 31 which were really tight to begin with, and the latest pair is a 32 which were comfortable (but not loose) in the waist from the get go. I'm much more happy with the fit of the second pair as they really have that 'trademark' DH antifit look. The 31s have stretched a lot in the waist over the last year, and they definitely look good, but they just had a crotch blowout too.
DH jeans will stretch a lot if you buy them tight, but as I see it it's better to just get ones that look good from the start. Then they won't stretch much if at all in the thighs either. YMMV of course. It's a pretty versatile cut after all, and I've even seen them look pretty cool when worn a size up too.
