if you don't like the feel of factory starch, i'd still suggest soaking jeans just to get that first layer of indigo off and hopefully minimize bleeding as much as possible... but why would you size up on Nudies? shits are gonna be way to big for you
edit - fuck me right? thought this was the Nudies thread... fail
^^^ or raw Uniqlo's for either $80 or $40... idk why people are so against buying these Unbranded's... people have been wearing them for what? 1-2 months? they could be great cheap denim, i say give em a shot
Just got mine, I sized down expecting they would stretch, I hope they will. I struggled to get the 3rd button done and I can't imagine buttoning the top one right now (without it popping out). I wore them today inside so they can stretch, but I didn't really notice a difference. I didn't move that much but I thought they would stretch more. Then again my only experience is with APCs and those stretch more than most jeans so it's not a good reference.
How much time does it usually take for jeans to stretch to their maximum size? I still have tags on mine so if they won't stretch as much as I expect then I'll just return them.
