I just bought some RRLs and am amazed at how well made and heavy these jeans are. Since they are sanforized, I know that I don't need to soak them and that when I do wash them, they will shrink minimally. However, I'm not too sure about how much they will stretch since they are sanforized. Do these stretch just as much as other dry denim?

In the 2 1/2 weeks I've worn mine, they haven't stretched to the point they're baggy, but more that they're comfortable. They still fit slim all around except for the waist which has stretch out a good 1/2" or so.

I'm telling you, bro. Otherwise, we'll take pics and be matching Urkels. I'll post up the RRL bootcut pics tomorrow/Fri on my thread.
