Leg twist is a result of a twill (denim in this case) weave.  It does not matter if it is left hand or right-hand twill, its natural inclination will be to twist.  It is simply a natural adjustment of the fabric, which tends to follow the direction of the weave as the fabric moves or shrinks after washing. It can be lessened by post weave skewing.

Gotcha, ya for some reason I was thinking it was more common in LHT.  Seems weird to me these would twist though since their sanforized and I’d assume a preskewing process is used?

Sanforisation is mostly about removing shrinkage, although it stabiliser fabric too.
Pre-skewing will also lessen the tendency to twist, by stabilising the weave. Neither process renders cotton completely  «dead» or inert though. The weave wants to go one way due to the uneven construction of a twill weave. Wearing or washing gives it an extra bit of motility. I think every jean I own has some leg twist on it.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,

Kind of caught me off guard I guess.  My first pair of selvedge jeans I’ve had that twisted in the legs after a wash thankfully it’s not really bad but still bugs me lol.

Did you wash them in a machine?

If the leg twist bothers you which looks like it does, hand washing them will be a better option for you to minimize it. The spin cycle and agitation of the washing machine aids in things like that to happen..

Kinda thinking about getting a pair of these and hemming them to a clean no break length. You think there's around .25-.5in of shrink left in these?

Guys, how much stretch you got on the thighs. Tag 38 looks good in all measurements but the thigh. You think that 13.4 can end up 13.8 or so?
