I found this dark grey material to be a lot more stretchy than the same style, The Skinny, in the darker wash called "rinsed indigo". I usually buy a size too small (24) and wear them damp as to quicken the stretching out process rather than buying a 25 and watching them slowly turn into saggy butt... however, the size 24 that i bought fits more like a 25 on me and in this case I hope they don't stretch out! We'll have to see if they do? Anyway, I'm still happy with them. I work in a casual office and I was looking for work appropriate jeans that I could get away with (so long as it isn't blue denim, I should be fine).
