    @i_denim Just wear a belt if you are concerned with stretch. Especially if you are happy with the fit everywhere else. I figure that denim stretches where it needs to.

    @i_denim these are from the vintage color line. Olive and Turtle dove is the color. The heel tag is black on this version, which I like. A little more understated than the normal red tag.

    @Max Power from what I can see they don't look super tight or anything and the thighs look more relaxed than mine. You'll probably get enough stretch out of them. You could always hand stretch the waist after washing too. They do seems to have all the shrink out on the one wash version.

    @superheavent I wear a 29 or a 30 in most jeans. I have 29 in TCB 50s and Slim 50s. Size 30 in TCB 60s (waist fits good with a roomy top block). Size 29 Boncoura 66. I went with a size 30 for the 2009 , mostly on account of the slim legs. The legs are slimmer than your average straight fit. I only have a little bit of wear in them, so I can't say how the stretch will be, but I'm happy with the fit so far. These are the measurements after I ran them through a hot wash (they are one- wash , but I'm obsessive about getting the shrinkage out. The only change was a small loss in length and negligible difference in leg opening.) Waist 31" Thigh 11" Rise 10.5" Inseam 32.5" Leg opening 7.75" @Max Power I did a hot wash before wear and Measure hardly any difference. Sugar Cane seems to shrink the hell out of their stuff. I think sizing up would be safe if you plan to wash frequently. If they are right now, they will be tight after every wash. How are the thighs on the 34? Reviews say these stretch out quite a lot.

    Just snag some 2009's. Really digging the fit on these.

    I just got some Converse Chuck Taylor Oxfords. Not sure how I feel about them. I sized TTS (10), even though all reviews say to size down. My wide ass feet are to blame. Kind of getting a clown shoe feeling. Is that normal for Chucks? I could size down at the risk of being too narrow.

    I think my inseam measures at 29.5" after hot soak and hot wash. I'm about 6' and have a double turn up going on. It's a tiny cuff and would be a bit longer with a standard single cuff. borderline high water look, but I like it.

    Hello, I received some hardly worn 66s not too long ago. Very excited to see how they wear!

    Don't get wider, straight legs confused with baggy. They will only look baggy if you don't wear them in the correct way. Pull them up to the correct place, with little or no break, and you're gold.

    @i_denim my true waist measurement (at belly button) is a 29.5 ish. I have a size 29 in the 50s, size 29 in 50s Slim (honestly I could size down to a 28 for waist and stretch, but the legs would be absurdly slim. I could also size up if I wanted a looser fit. The waist on the Slims ends up larger because of the low rise) and I have size 30 in the 60s. The 60s do indeed run smaller in the waist than the 50s, but I also feel like the top block is similar for both. Sizing up to 30 gave me a good waist fit, but are looser all around. I could've gotten a 29 in the 60s, but it wouldve been absolutely killer after every wash and dry. If you sized the 60s without going up, you may get the fit you want. You could try to control the shrink in the waist band by putting some in there to Keep that part from shrinking. Hope this helps a little. Sizing can be tricky.
