    I'm thinking of buying a pair of rock and republic 98% cotton 2% lycra jeans, as you wear stretch jeans do they stretch out at all after you wear them for a few days like 100% cotton, or is there no give at all and it'll just always be the exact same size? After the first wash and hang dry do they change shape at all?

    Synthetic fibers tend to maintain the fabric's shape despite wear. Don't expect it to stretch out. Shrinkage is a little dicier, but I wouldn't expect it.
