    Short owners of Momotaro (5'8''>), do you like to stack the 37 inch inseam, or hem them to right length?

    I'm about your height and, as a general rule, I hem to about 30.5" - 31.5" for some stacking...

    I'm looking a picking up a pair of Momotaro in the near future. My only really experience with good denim is APC. I currently own a 2 year old pair of APC Rescue in size 30. They fit well now, but it took a lot of time to break in. Even now, I find the waist a bit too big, though the thighs perfect. Any idea what I should go for, in terms of sizing? Do they shrink much, or stretch a lot? I understand APC stretch a bit more than standard denim. And how should I treat them, in terms of soaking them or anything.
    Cheers, and sorry for the noob questions.

    They shrink about an inch in the waist and two in length. They won't stretch much though. Applies to Vintage Label only by the way.

    I forget the username, but a momo stockist on sufu says he always advises sizing down 1 on vintage label b/c they do stretch out...

    Will the waist stretch out or is the 1 inch loss permanent?

    My experience is very little stretch on the vintage label.

    Advice is just the same as always - nail the thigh fit, or you're going to be uncomfortable and eventually flip them. Waists can be controlled (or tolerated) far better.
