    Are people still doing that "size down 3" thing? That has got to be most self-immolating trend of the noughties.

    The fact they don't fit should bother you.

    I'd rather they not fit me perfect out of the box, so to speak.

    Man I'm with entrero. If they won't button up presoak, post soak is going to be tough. Best of luck'

    Does the broken sunglass temple piece on the floor have anything to do with the fit?

    How are you going to break in a pair of pants you can't button up?

    You should be able to do up all of the buttons. That's just how jeans are designed to be worn. Snug, okay. But only being able to button the bottom button? It's time to call this a failure, and admit that you are (at least) 2 sizes bigger than you'd like to think.

    At least once a month I get a PM from a random user asking to critique their fit. :uhoh: I figure they have me confused with Fok.

    I'm with the others here...If you couldn't do the buttons pre-soak, you definitely won't be able to do the buttons post-soak.

    It's time to cut your losses and sell them. Even if they do stretch enough to be able to button, you're more than likely on track for a major blowout. Denim can stretch, but it's stretching properties aren't infinite. Size up a few.

    Those are going to be way too loose in 5 years (post neutron bomb). Should have sized down more.

    I already got the second button and can just about get the third, these stretch a fair amount in the waist.
