I've worn the same size Levi shrink to fit since high school. 33w x 36L. I know I haven't gained MUCH weight. Yes the other 16 pairs of the same jeans fit a little tighter in the waist than when I bought them, but after only 1 wash and dry, I couldn't button the top 2 buttons. Waist size post wash approx 29" Bit much don'tcha think? I still have 2 pairs of made in America Levis, and the rest are Mexico. These were made in Egypt. Returned for refund.
