Damp Stretch McKinley?

I recently picked up a pair of Laurel Canyon in McKinley w/ Crease for a great price in my usual 26, but the waist on these have some crraaaazy stranglehold on my waist. I can zip and button, but from what I read these won't give much.

I love the wash and the fit, but they are also too long. Should I try a damp stretch on the waist and suffer the length, or return and hope to find another super deal in one that's sized up?

First world problems TIA

The problem with McKinley and the other 60/40 washes is that the rebound. So you stretch and they just bounce right back to where they were.

You might have some luck stretching the inner cotton waist band to minimize of the rebound effect on the waist, but you are not going to get the same amount in the waist as a 98/2 blend (or 100% cotton for that matter)
