just got a pair of grey zathan cords today (old style with whiskering) and they are hella tight. i can't tell if they will give much if at all. has anyone ever successfully stretched a pair of cords?

In my experience with them, they dont stretch much at all! I have never tried to successfully stretch them though, so I am not sure if that is possible, but I have had mine for at least 2 years and they havent stretched much at all!

Okay...this is VERY weird...I bought a pair of X Ro cords in a 30x32...usually I wear a 32 in Diesel cords and a 30w in jeans; however, the previous owner managed to stretch the waist to make the 30w cords into a 30w Diesel. The thighs are tight though and haven't budged...really weird and they fit me amazing, but I have no clue how he managed to stretch the waist that much on corduroy?

When the member (I think Vagabond) sold them to me he was damn confused as well...hence the reason he sold them because the other 30s he had I think were the actual "cord" size...

My experience with Diesel cords has been weird...

I had the Zathan 40C Grey cords, 31x33 I can't remember who I sold them to on here, and they stretched about an entire waist size it seemed.

So I tried the Zathan 40C black/brown cords in a 30x32ish... I was able to get about 1/2 inch out of the legs wet stretching... but nothing in the waist. These things are so tough too it's insane.

The grey ones STRETCHED. Went from A tight 31 (perfect for me) to a very loose 31, almost 32.

Then I got some Zathan 31Ts from last season and they seemed to maybe have some give but I never found out, they got jacked in the laundromat.

Sounds like those old school ones with the streaks are similar to the black ones though. I had the Ravix in the same wash (can't remmeber wash) a long time ago, the slightly greenish grey ones. Those barely stretched at all...

Good luck man.
