Another important thing to take into account...although the upper part of the jeans will shrink with washing, that area (especially around the waist band) will stretch...

this might be a stupid questions. can i hot soak the botom portion of my jeans. i want to shrink the length, but do not want to shrink anything above the knee. bad idea?

did a cold soak on my 1955's they shrunk to tagged size, about 3 inches, how much will they stretch back out? thanks for the help.

My guess is Barrie or Aberdeen, but just a guess. yeah i did call them the sales person did not know what last, said he would call alden tomorrow. thought i take a stab and see if anyone had them.
