Not sure if you already got em but, generally yes you should size down for stretching otherwise you are going to eventually have nicely worn  jeans that are way too big in the waist/hip area.  Take it from me I know.  It is going to feel uncomfortable at first but if you wear them for long periods of time everyday for a week that feeling should pass.  At first it should be quite difficult to button up. 
For those who are in New York or plan to visit and want to give raw jeans a shot for 79 bucks check out Uni Qlo.  I was just in NY and they had the ads plastered all over the subways.  I visited their Soho location and picked up a pair of blue selvage denim for $79.  They have regular fit and skinny fit, in both black and blue.  This is the cheapest I have seen raw denim.  I was surprised when I rolled up the leg to see they were...
