I've been wearing cheap mondays for a while (and for the obvious reason: theyre cheap), but lately ive just been disenchanted with the quality. I've been thinking about going to nudie, but i heard they stretch out a lot; my question is do they stretch out nearly as bad as cheap mondays do?

I think it depends on the cut of the jeans. Most of Nudie jeans will stretch a bit. Not as much as Cheap Mondays though.

I've owned my Slim Jim's for about five months and they haven't stretched to the point where it's really noticeable. They still feel snug, but I definitely don't mind.

That's disappointing to hear as I bought them one size down with hope that it would stretch one size in the waist to make it a near perfect fit.

That may be fine. Not all Slim Jims are sized the same. I have 1 pair that fits perfect, one that is a little too loose and one that is much to tight and they are all 33 waist. So just wait and see.

Slim Jims will stretch if you sized down for sure... Mine stretched and I had actually bought a size too large (had never worn "non-baggy" pants before and they felt a lot smaller than they were... now I realize they fit more like straight legs than slim fit on me, but I enjoyed them at that point in style so no harm no foul, they were leagues ahead of the bootcut 7fam shit i was wearing before i got them)

How long did it take for them to stretch out in your case? Thanks!

That is quite a quick turnaround. I bought these jeans about a month ago and wear them 2 days a week on my days off from work, but they still haven't stretch yet.
