    Yeah...where else are these sold? I've never even heard or seen them until I stumbled upon it here.

    This site was posted on mynudies. It appears that they have all of the various STFs.

    Are those pretty much true to color? I was hoping they would be a bit darker.

    Thanks for posting those numbers. If the waist really loses 3 inches, that makes it a lot harder to pick a size because the thigh only loses a tiny bit and the knees aren't changing at all .grr.....

    I don't know whose math is worse. Assuming that the pre measurement is 2X and he means 15.25 preshrunk, the waist goes from 15.25 to 13.75 for a loss of 1.5 inches. Right? [​IMG]

    and you must multiply that 1.5 inches by two which gives you a loss of 3 inches in the waist all around, which is what I'm assuming stylesmurf was implying.

    It went from 30.5" presoak to 27.5" postsoak. 30.5-27.5 = 3 inches. hope that is a bit more clear

    I was at Macy's trying them on (they didn't have khakis).. and I normally wear size 32-33 in most jeans (raw OR rinsed). The 31s were too tight in the waist but fit perfect around the legs whereas the size 32s were a little tight in the waist but loose in the legs so I figured 32 would be perfect. But if I have to size up any more to account for the 3" waist strinkage, I'm nervous that the legs won't shrink enough. I'm not looking for skinny fit, just something that fits right. 33" were quite baggy and loose already.

    3 inches in the waist is pretty crazy. I ordered a 31 and I usually wear a 30, I'll post fit pics when I get them. I ordered off Amazon, through macys.

    Agreed, 3 inches in the waist is nuts. I wear a 31 in everything I own and my 501s are a 31 waist. While they were def hard to button at first the waist stretched back out significantly and now they feel like any of my other 31 sized pants.
