Yes, already have, & I think it's kinda cool. I'm getting a lot of dye on the book in the back pocket, too.

How much would you recommend sizing down on the pre-washed levis? i've heard that can stretch quite a bit

The Macy's near me has khaki STFs, as well as brown, greencast, indigo, light blue, and purple. They were all on sale for $34.99 a week ago. Hope that helps.

I'm doing something similar. Got a 1-inch size up in the waist to see how a different fit turns out.

Thats how mine fit more or less. I sized down 1, Im gonna size down 2 if I can find a 28 pair. My Macys only carries 30s, Ive seen 28s on Levis.com once I think. TTS these fit me really baggy/boxy.

These stretch as much as APC do so sizing down isn't a problem as long as your thighs are not big.
