Long time lurker here, decided to sell off my deadstock pair of Valencia Street '47. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/173776144226 Interested in trading with '47 or '55 Valencia jeans in bigger sizes. Shoot me a PM if you wanna make a private bid. Thank you!
I had a pair of '54's that i bought just right in the waist - tight like yours. This was also my first pair and worried. But i gave it the regular ol' hot soak and then hung them to dry, for an hour before putting them on damp for maybe 10 mins? Let them dry and wear. Mine have been washed a million times at 40 and 60 degrees celcius and it always streches back. Continuous wear will set it straight.
