haha finally got the top button done after a couple hours.    i think you need a little pain at first, it makes it that much more rewarding when you get them how you want them.

these are going to be perfect once they stretch, loving them.

"A couple hours" hahaha oh Lord... But don't worry - these really do stretch rather quickly, especially if they're (that) tight!..

haha yeah i know.  i just had the fly buttoned up for the first part of the day.   i got the top one and its definitely stretching but im not sure if im cutting off circulation, causing nerve damage, or damaging any vital organs.   but who cares? i look amazing.

Ok, everybody seems to size down on IH jeans.

I'm 32W in all other brands and have a pair of IH461 and 802's. based on these I wouldn't size down, and based on experience on 461 I'd size one up.

Question is, if I size 1 up let's say in 634s or 634sr how much will they stretch? My uneducated guess is that not much, and they'd be quite comfortable from the start. (shit I just noticed 33W are sold out in 634sr)

...so it's going to be 634 or something new that is coming out (I have straight 66'ish cut in my
  mind  what I'd like ...probably)

yeah. if they're not tight to begin with i'd say 1/2 inch to an inch of stretch MAX (total waist, not 1/2 waist measurement) if even that.

Granted it's easier to size if you have your true waist size
