    No disrepect intended, but you have no idea what you are talking about.

    The jeans that spacemanvt asked about stretch out a lot over time. They will eventually sag unless you fit them tight when new.

    Please go enjoy your Levi's.

    I got them to button all the way.. I wanted them tight to account for stretching... I just think these might be too tight

    Worry about the thighs more than the waist. The thighs won't stretch as much as the waist will.

    They are too tight. Size up 1, if not 2. You have tree trunk thighs, like me.

    So I got my new solid black weird guys. Should I do a cold water rinse or what? Before wearing or after a few months? I want to stretch them out a bit but also want to have them fade eventually.

    This is my worry, as a size 31 has a 34 inch waist apparently with the momo collab.. Gonna give a 31 a shot (dont have the 30's in stock)

    P.S. anyway to get comb indents out for return?

    Anyone know if they should stretch like the other models such as indigo and left hand twill? Trying to make sure sizing down 2 is the right call.

    I think this is something people need to think about and not just waist stretch. I have slightly strong thighs from gym, biking, basic exercise...The waist will stretch but the thighs won't as much. I have had a few pairs of weird guys in different styles and in my opinion if you can't button them up they are way to small (in my taste, but I don't think skin tight jeans look good). I wear my jeans very hard and yes, they do stretch....but I like to call it settling which is normal..i.e. the jeans loosen and form to your body. I don't like to comment on sizing because I feel a lot of guys on this site don't have the athletic build like myself (no offence, but if you look like the guys who run N&F, which is fine, then you have a small frame). If you have an athletic build then I would not size down due to room in the thighs. The weird guy cut in general is almost to skinny in the thighs for me.

    Stuffing a pair of sweatpants in the thigh area of the jeans while worn for a few hours I think can stretch out the thigh area. I'm gonna do this while playing PS3.

    I think it fits fine. I can usually get an inch of stretch in the thighs by just sitting around and walking. Or just sleep a few days in them and you'll be fine.

    imo, People who think they "get stretch out of their thighs" are really misinterpreting what is happening. Odds are, you are stretching the waist, which causes the jeans to wear lower on your body, thereby increasing the relative size of the thighs. Sag your jeans, thighs get bigger.

    That, or you literally managed to put true denim on like spandex, and VERY literally lost feeling entirely in your lower extremities. Not joking.

    I can show you measurements of my jeans now and you can compare them to the ones posted online if you want.

    I've been wearing my solid black WGs since September or so. given that they're sanforized, I didn't figure a soak was necessary. Given that they'll have minimal shrinkage, I think you could be safe without a soak. Wear shouldn't move much if any.

    my Broken twill jeans are starting to feel better, the only area that is still cutting into my skin is the area right below the waist band right above where the pockets begin.
    Could that be considered the thigh region, because my lower thighs are fine because of the looser cut of the slim guys.

    You guys sure they will stretch that much more? this is only 3 days of wear.
