Does anyone have any from this or another recent season? I am trying to figure out how much they stretch in the waist/top block. I just bought a pair, and I took the ones that were a bit snug feeling, but closed without too much effort, vs a size down that took five tries just to get the top button closed. These aren't dry jeans, but pretty close to it (and fit the same as the dry ones I tried).

As an aside, what do you all think of their post-Prada product? I only looked at jeans today, but I have to say, I really like them, and like the fact that they have a slightly higher (without being ridiculous) rise and a bit more room in the top block than most jeans of equal slimness.

Well I don't have any HL from recent reasons but my pair from 1999 didn't stretch much.

one of my pairs of hl from 1999 is raw denim (classic cut) and yes they have stretched a bit, maybe an inch at most in the waist, but i don't know anything about the non-hl hl jeans

i did see that the latest issue (oct) of wallpaper mag has a small article on hl and what he's up to these days .... mainly his own photography it appears
