i have that pair...was debating whether or not to keep 'em...i have las palmas in dk clean and (drumroll please...) las palmas benedict canyon in tuscan...well, VERY SOON!!!
idk if i can justify having 3 las palmas styled paiges.
the other reason i was debating about this pair was because of the destroyed look on it...ever notice that the distressing is not "even"? idk, there's distressing near the front knee on one leg, but not the other...there's more distressing on one back pocket vs. the other... i guess i'm weird in that i like distressing to look even?
the saving grace for this pair is the way the embroidery POPS, and of course, the dark, soft wash.
well, will have to decide soon, as the return policy's grace period is coming up!
oh yeah, in reference to ur question about stretching out paiges in the waist, i've found paiges def maintain their shape. i have 6 paiges now...none have shrunken in the waist.
i must say tho that the pair looks astounding on u!
