I bought a pair of APC petit standards in size 29 (sized down once as recommended by the salesman) at the APC store in SOHO New York. At the time the jeans fit me well (slim, but not skinny). Due to weightlifting my quads and hamstrings have grown much larger in size and the jeans have become very tight on my thighs. Not only do I dislike the way they look, but they are also very uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. They restrict normal movement and getting my hands into the pockets is an annoying task. I've been doing squats, lunges and occasionally sleeping in my denim which has made wearing them slightly more bearable, but ultimately I think I'll be needing a new pair. I haven't been wearing them much lately because I don't feel comfortable in them. Should I continue to wear them and try to stretch them out? Will washing them make the denim less rigid (I haven't washed them yet)? Or - should I just sell them for what I can and buy a new pair?
