What he says in this other interview led me to feel a bit more positive... but yes, like Karacho says, only time will tell. Fingers crossed.
This could just be my experience, but I find they run somewhat large overall, especially on the thighs... you might want to size down if you're looking for a slimmer fit. And no worries about the waist, because it will expand in time. The denim is on the thick side, but not rigid. Hope this helps.
