Wow. That BOM pair looks amazing.
Momo 0701 PBJ XX-007
0701 is TTS. I sized down one and I wouldn't recommend it. 0201 you can size down one easily.
What makes you say 0701's are One Wash? Sure, they come in One Wash also, but most of the 0701's sold, are raw.
I would go with BOW measurements. Japanese manufacturers often measure jeans different than the BIG method.
It probably is some leftover starch, which gets "reactivated" after washing. You could opt to wash them thouroughly, as in agitating the fabric and rinse them afterwards, so the starch comes out of the fabric.
Edit: Load of crap here, because I didn't read correct. The cigarette slim is a different cut. Higher rise, somewhat straight slim cut. The XX-013 is a slim tapered cut. Lower rise opposed to the XX-015 and a taper from knee down. A soak or wash will get everything back into "when new" status, might be that there will be some residual shrinkage, but don't expect much (this due to the industrial laundering process). So the only way to make the hems smaller, is indeed to...
True. But the keywords are stress, agitation and abrasion. Just running water over denim wouldn't hurt.Also @ Jompso: You could also opt to partially soak trouble regions. I'm not in the wear them damp camp either, for the obvious reasons. But you either have to toughen up and break them in, size up or find another way. Just because of the latter I've mentioned it.
No. I allready mentioned before. Water alone, does not cause indigo loss. Wearing them damp to stretch them out easier will not to, either. Only abrasion will.
Yes. But you could opt to wear them damp. Cotton is easier to manipulate when wet.
