Did you size down? There are no rules, you can do whatever you want so if you feel they are loose then go ahead and give them a soak.

Yeah true say.

Oddly enough though. I did a hot soak on a pair of cheap (and I mean cheap) raw denim jeans from the states and the tightness/"shrink factor" has kept for quite some time. I wonder if it'll yield the same results on better quality denim?

Hmm to minimize stretching you have to size down a lot. I also find that entry level raw denim stretches and loses their shape more compared to more expensive options.

When you guys talk about stretching, do you mean stretching only in the waist or throughout the jean? On my N&F denim it stretched a shitload in front of the knee and thighs, as well as the waist.

Do you guys say that's because of the denim or because of my tendency to bend my knees alot?

It depends on how tight it is too. If its tight around your thighs, it will stretch more than if its loose.

The sale cuts looks ugly (for my body type, at least). They've got what looks to be loose cut, a boot cut, and a straight cut. If they had a nice slim taper, I'd love to try it, but my legs aren't muscular enough for those kinds of cuts and I prefer small leg openings.

Thanks for the heads-up, though. Might buy a pair of washed denim.

Holy baggy, batman.

But if more relaxed fitting is your thing, then $35 is worth a shot.

I couldn't size down any further lol. If I did I wouldn't be able to close the top button. But according to the guy at Dutil, that's normal and people buy jeans that they can't close at initial purchase. I don't know how comfortable I am with that idea.

Ended up copping jbxmomo 0100SP
It's like an N&F Skinny Guy fit but with an inch bigger waist. Going to go finish up this week with my N&F denim, then a machine wash, then hanging them up for good.
