    Ponyboy,

    Thanks! I have been wearing mine for a month (since around when I first asked the question), and I would say they definitely stretched 1", maybe a little more. Now I'm afraid to wash them because I think they'll shrink back down.

    They will stretch out again after the wash, my jeans always do that, anyhow :)

    While true. The fades aren't that special in my opinion. Just go straight to white,

    these are to big aren't they...... They are already loose in the waist and dont like all the extra fabric on my lower thigh. Cant decide if I should size down one in the ub221 or get the ub121 in the same size!! Good to know they stretch though even at 21oz. If anyone wants them for cheap pm they are brand new (got them hemmed to 32.25 so cant take them back :S)

    Wow ben2t that's freaking insane man. Very nice. How much do you wear them per day and what activities do you do in them?

    @ink, no special activities I have the 1st UB221 Dec 17 but returned it a UO after 4 days of wear for defective outseam and got a replacement Dec26. since then i wear this 4 to 5 a week.this fades really really fast you can already notice that on the 1st day of use. Hope this will look great as it aged, but i can see the potential.[​IMG]

    @Ben2t Sweet. Yeah I've been wearing my 101 for 10 days now (averaging 12 hours a day) mainly sitting at my desk job, playing with my kids at home or just sitting around the house. Hopefully will see some progress in a couple of months.

    But yeah Ben yours are looking great for such a short amount of time. Good work man

    old fit vs. new fit

    anyone worn the black chinos in the new fit?

    I just got a pair a size down from what i wear in the tan chinos and they still fit bigger but i don't know if i size down two sizes whether or not they'll be too tight in the waist

    my tan chinos had minimal stretching if any in the waist

    blue owl has measurements of both the old and new fit for the denim but they only have the old fit of the chinos at this point

    Yup, same thing happened to one of my buttons. That is really the only complaint I have. I guess I can't complain too much. I just stopped at JoAnn fabrics and bought a pack of the buttons and studs for about $4 and put a new one on. No one sees them anyway, unless it was the top one.

    That happened to some Nike Sportswear chinos I owned. What do you expect, they're cheap jeans that use cheap hardware and made in China.

    $110 is not cheap! But this buttons are surely very very cheap maybe this cost a penny in China. a $30 Wrangler has way more durable buttons than this. Hey Mr Brandon Svarc please give your customers some respect and spend a couple more penny on your buttons.

    $110 is cheap. Get some quality denim if you don't want every thread to break and every button come poppin' of. You get what you pay for.

    except for the hardware quality i like my UB especially the cut so what i am asking from Brandon is to please spend a little bit more on the buttons, instead of selling it for $110 make it $110.10 and you will make your customers happy. [​IMG]

    It was no stab towards you. But I wonder what you can expect for 110 bucks on 21oz denim. Not much, I reckon.
