Cheap Monday Jeans are notorious for being ultra tight. They have a very rock star look and their jeans even have a small amount of spandex (98.5 Cotton, 1.5% Lycra) so you can move around. These particular unwashed jeans need to have some consideration made when purchasing them since they are made of raw denim. Raw Denim has not been through any distress or pre wash cycles like most jeans are - because of this they stretch while being worn and will shrink after washed. Because they stretch while being worn it is usually a good idea to size most raw denim jeans down one size, however due to the fact that Cheap Mondays are already extremely right, you might want to size up. It is really all about opinion: do you want your jeans ultra tight, or a little loose? Also, since they have never been washed there is a chance when wearing these that the indigo dye will rub off onto fabrics (it's most noticeable on white couches or chairs or anything lightly colored that gets allot of contact with the jeans).
