I just got a pair of 201's in size 34 (which is TTS with damn near every other pair of non-raw jeans I own) and tried them on for the first time an hour or 2 ago. Fit is pretty tight everywhere and I can't button the top button but I'm sitting here typing with all but the top button buttoned up. I'm a pretty athletic guy and the thighs are fairly tight, not loose at all and the calves aren't skin tight but are certainly snug. I dig the skinny/slimmer look and they fit great around my new favorite pair of Danner boots
(really slim/skinny, not loose and baggy over boots at all) and as they softened up through wear I'm guessing they'd look/fit pretty damn nice, I guess I just wish they were a LITTLE bit looser. My worry is that by exchanging for the 36's they're going to be TOO loose and I'll be right back to the fits I almost always wear, which are looser, more relaxed jeans that have much larger leg openings and fit looser through the knee and calf areas.
Anyone have an opinion on whether I should just deal with them being tight and hope/expect they loosen up all around through wear...or if I should exchange for the 36's because they won't already be super loose on my first wearing. I'm looking for much slimmer jeans than I usually wear and I really feel these have potential...!
