Have to agree. They look really good now. Perfect! They aren't going to stretch much, so you can be sure that's how they'll fit forever. If they do stretch a bit for some reason, another wash will take care of it. They also take a good long while to fade (or at least did for me). Those don't look tight on your thighs... how big are your thighs anyway? I have 25" thighs, which are big, so unless yours are around the same size, you don't really have big thighs. I think the fit looks good, thigh-wise, on that pair. Mine are also 25". Nicely masked by my enormous height and generally large proportions.
