    If those are brand new Rescues, those are going to be huge on you once they fully stretch out. They look too big on you as is right now also.

    Cloth only stretches when pressured.

    The color, texture and fit of the bottom half is really well done (especially with that bit of cuff to break it up), but the top seems out of place and generally mediocre.

    True enough about the top. I was headed to work though, so it couldn't be anything to wild. Not that I really do 'wild'. A different shirt perhaps would have made it better. Thanks for the comments.

    jt, looking good, mate, I like that shawl cardi and the R&B shirt.

    Even if they don't stretch another inch, they're too big right now. Look at those hip flares, there's nothing flattering about that.

    That's about as slim a shirt as I would wear if I were you. I wouldn't go any slimmer.

    It's true. I'm not a big fan of stacking, but it really only works with slim or tapered leg openings. Straight or boot cuts with inseams that are too long just result in the extra material really jutting out to the sides.
    i'll disagree about sizing down but i am going to look into getting them hemmed/tapered, i think. probably 2" off the hem [they run longer than listed] so i don't have to cuff them. the leg opening at the new hem would be around 8" so .5-1" taper would probably do it?

    What size should I hem to account for shrinking once I wash them.

    whatever your true inseam is + 1 size should be fine
