I just got my KMW washed (they are non-raw version) and they are a bit too tight in the waist, they actually run pretty near true to size... anyway, I really want to keep them but is it possible to stretch non-raw denim in the waist? I know they'll stretch a tad (maybe .25-.5) over the time of wearing them but what about other methods? maybe wetting the waist and wedging something in it to stretch it? any thoughts.

You can hot soak the fabric and use a stretcher.


Ill try and post one a bit later, I would say if they have 1" they would be perfect. As it si right now I can button them all the way up, and they feel okay, but when I sit down they are a bit uncomfortable..

nvrmnd he just got back to me, that was quick.

I thought 2010 was slimmer than 1950, but otherwise, you're right.

2010 is the loose pair which I have, If you have the one rinse then yes it will stretch 1-2 inches, I got the 29 and at first it was tight on the waste now its comfortably loose.
