    I had no idea you can have the waist taken in just on the backside. That is exactly where it falls down a bit. Great tip. I'll ask my tailor.

    I had the same phenomenon in khakis -- fit straight out of the dryer, but almost falling down a few days afterward. Had the waist taken in on the backside (had to specify there and not the front) and it fixed the problem superbly.

    The key to getting a great fit with jeans is to buy them so they are tighter than you would normally wear. They're gonna stretch out a little bit and you'll be left with a great fitting pair of pants. The current pair of jeans I'm on were really tight when I first got them. They were pretty tough to get into and borderline uncomfortable. They've stretched out enough now that they fit absolutely perfectly and they're really comfortable.

    Most fabrics, including denim, will stretch out a bit during wear--particularly in the waist/midsection area because that gets the most movement throughout your day. Generally, I buy jeans that are pretty tight when I initially put them on (after washing them), so that when they stretch out a bit they're not too droopy; however, there isn't much you can do to avoid the stretch.

    The disappearing arse. Why do my jeans stretch out so much?

    I feel like after one wear my jeans are a size bigger.
    They stretch out an inch in the waist, hang down a little, and make it look like my arse is nonexistent. DRIVES ME NUTS.
    They still fit great everywhere else, actually better everywhere else.

    Should I just get the waist taken in an inch or inch and a half? Are there any other solutions?

    Damn Denim Problems.
