    Seconded, don't do it. Also still looking for a reasonable salt proxy as well. Shoot me a PM if anyone finds one.

    I use to subscribe to the size down mentality, but more and more I am realizing that I should go with my TTS, or at most one size down, when it comes to raw jeans.

    Im sure the larger pair is still relatively tight, right? If so, then it'll probably stretch out to be just right. I feel like jeans never stretch out as much as I expect them to.

    Think you've got this right.

    Ideally, they should be snug and not overly accommodating. However, for the sake of comfort, you shouldn't be buying them too tight, despite what has curiously become common wisdom advising otherwise.

    There are myriad options these days for slim jeans in high quality raw selvage that will achieve the desired look. If you just don't like the sagged, stretched look that indevitably happens when you don't wash your jeans for an extended period, the answer is simple: wash them.

    The whole size down thing was mostly an offshoot of APC's denim stretching so abnormally. At some point, it became protocol to at least attempt to size down on almost any other denim, regardless of it had a rep of stretching out a lot or not.

    I think about this occasionally. I really should print that out and put it in like a time capsule for myself just in case

    Just received my New Cure's in the mail. They are a 30, I usually wear a 32 or 33. I had to struggle for almost 10 minutes to get them buttoned up. From what I've read, this means they are the proper waist. What I'm worried about is the thigh. They are skin tight from the knee up. Will this stretch? Is this ok? Will this look feminine?
