I purchased a pair of earnest sewn's (sz 24) from the last sale on ruelala.com (they look identical to the pair on the left, however, not sure if they are the same exact wash). I just received them in the mail today -- I'm also new to dry denim. It fits my legs a little tight but that's the way I generally like my jeans, but I cannot get them to button!!! I wear sz 24 across many brands. I can stretch the button about 1/4 of an inch away from the loop of the jeans. It is a pretty rigid denim.
I want your opinion....do you think they can be stretched or should I return it?
