    first post here.

    i bought some of these as my first pair of raws. i normally wear a 32 and after a lot of poking around on unbranded's site and blue owl i decided to get a 32 in the 401s. when they arrived the waist was a good inch too small, couldn't even button it up. sent them back and am wondering if i should get a 33 or even a 34, even though there's no way i'm that big in the waist. i've read elsewhere that they do stretch a lot in the waist.

    About 2 weeks of wear for the waist to stretch

    I've got a pair of UB301s tagged 33 that only have a wear or two on them if anyone wants to buy them. Send a PM.

    My new pair of 401s size 32 TTS. I can button them without effort, I think the fit pretty nice, should I go 1 size down? Does these stretch a lot like APCs?

    Maybe but I've read that unbranded barely stretch out, I'm gonna try to size up and decide. Its difficult for me to bend to lace my shoes for example

    Purchased one each in tapered 14.5 and 11 oz, size 34, and they're tight, but I'm able to button up all the way. However, I feel the rise is too short, and am afraid going up to 36 would make them too loose after break-in. Should I expect that rise would increase by .5-1" after break-in?
