Yup! That waistband ...F1209640-75A8-46FD-B6D8-5745E865B683.gif.1b7637cf3c04d5a6984c5958fdd89d92.gif


Rigid W36: @1st hotsoak was 34.5” stretched out to 37” in just 1.5 days of wear, belt off.

I mean, I’m not proud that my paunch ballooned up from a 34.5”, pre-covid, but I’m happy for folks who are in dire need of a comfort stretch ....FF7E8FB3-BB07-465E-82AC-0A18E77033CA.gif.38e9dee97b7f1660b3ab7454ac774bbc.gif

Should be a motivation for some guys and try their pairs again?! If only the waist is the problem of course.

This could be me. My pair is raw. Fits fine in everyplace but waist. But after soaking, I’ll need at least a cm of stretch past raw. 
 

Has anyone’s pair stretched past raw waist dimensions?

@FurnitureMaker One full inch past raw.  At the end of the warm/hot soak,  briskly agitate the waistband to forcibly remove some starch & loosen up the fabric before hang drying.

Ina couple of days wear, repeat.

Excited to see the results of this. I want to put some painted arcs on my pair but so far haven't had a lot of success with the stencils I have practiced with.

@Graytrain why don’t you try going freehand?

Interesting Broark -- not especially large for a 46.  I haven't measured my one-wash 44, but it's trimmer than the 50s in the same size.  Wish I had gone raw on the 40s, but it's still very nice.

@JohnM I agree, wish it was a little bigger in the chest. 
But it's not enough for me to try to work out an exchange...

Same, I could use another inch in the chest, but I suspect it will loosen up with time.  Was yours one-wash too?

Correct, mine is one wash. I feel like mine has been stretching / breaking in pretty easily.

and for sizing talk...

refrained from much of the debate until I had my pair in hand...

but some measurements and relatives...

so 38 one wash out of the packet in cm:

w. 45.5-46 / fr. 35.5 / thigh. 32 / hem. 22.5

but a wee dampening, manual tug and then an afternoon of wear got waist straight to 38" dimension (feels as if it may go further...)

and then some pix with tcb 20s (also 38w - washed and worn)

and with a pair of tcb 50s (sized 36 washed and worn)

LUbfiOYh.jpg

or to repeat what I said earlier in the thread; I find, in my experience, that tcb jeans, if washed and worn tend to end up at their tagged waist size...

[assuredly these have yet to go through a home wash, but they feel like there is lots of room to give in the material...]

so in my experience, this pair, at this size, is no different to other tcb pairs I have had, regardless of their chart info... [perhaps they need to update the chart as washed and worn...]

Awww, that is a cute dog!!  What's the name?

As for the muffincuffing, I approve! All the cool kids will be doing it.  But you don't have a muffintop to worry about.

Putting my feet up with a glass of pinot grigio (and a shitload of fucking toys) after a long day 2.

Thiago! He's a Brazilian terrier, so it made sense to give him a Brazilian name. I don't care about football (soccer) but men always ask me if he's named after some famous player. Truth is I named him after the cute exchange student in my class in high school.
