@Tiro Btw, do u just need the waistband to stretch to raw measurement or u need more?

I got mine way early, so I’ve been tinkering at it due to sheer boredom.  I haven’t done an actual wash cuz the combs are a priority at this point, for me.  But the waistband, I’ve practically hand-wash twice already & right now it’s pliable ... I got it to raw measurements the last time I tried them on,  now I seems waist can go past raw.  Caveat, possibility is much better on bigger sizes cuz there’s more material to work with.

Hope they work out for U, mate!

If anyone has a pair with a post-wash or OW waist of 82 to 85 cm that they can't make work, let me know.

I’ll keep u posted. They’re still drying.... not sure if they’ll work out for me yet.

Not sure yet. I’ll know for sure in the next day or so. The fit was pretty spot on when raw except for the waist that was super tight. 
So I definitely need the waist to stretch back to raw or even beyond...

the rest will be a suprise after they’re dry... :-)

Across the board the fit pictures look great, in my opinion.  It looks like they work really well on the women taking part, I guess due to the high rise.  Glad to see considering all the sizing concerns  

If there’s a prize for “Best Fit” the wimmenz will be the strongest contenders cuz the combo of top block ratio + high rise favor them.  Hell, they could even pull a sized down.

Yes, it's 7:25am on the 1st here and I've already sandpapered some arse-whiskers and contrived an artful lightning fade on the coin pocket...

 

Really, though, can't remember who said it but I share the sentiment: I'm just happy to be alive, participating in something that's bigger than I am in a new pair of jeans. Mrs mondo has already teased me about my grand-dad rise...

These are size 36.  My 50s were 34 and a bit tight, so I sized up and am happy.

Yes, truth be told - and this is not to minimize other people's sizing issues - these jeans feel more or less exactly like my other size 30 jeans. The waist is indeed a bit smaller but it also sits higher up where I measure less. Could've managed a 29, but I'm very happy with the way things are! 

Anyway, it's on! Busy morning, but I'll get back with my official kick-off picture later. I'll admit that I wore the jeans taking my puppy for a walk around the block late last night. I just couldn't wait... ^_^
