Ya, my resistance is basically due to the fact that the soak will introduce wrinkle and fold where I have (semi-caustic) pristine, flat denim. They're like the Platonic ideal of jeans right now. That said, why go through the pain twice?
Sigh. I am resisting soaking them as they have that amazing new jean stiffness. Want to enjoy it a bit, but maybe I'll give in and run a hot bath for 'em when I get home from work. And then suffer when I try and get them on again.
Iron Heart 634S.
Weird, the Self Edge site says there should be some minor shrinkage. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

Quote: Wish there was some kind of thigh measurement I could take and compare to the measurements on SE Couldn't you just measure a pair of pants you own? Just bought the 634S's myself as my first pair of premium. Looking forward to the whole process.

Such an awesome brand to sink your teeth into. Good call. I hope you love 'em. Fit pix plz. Maybe in a few weeks. The waistband needs to break down a bit; right now they're seriously tight. Apparently there'll be some give. Then I need to soak 'em...
Just wanted to post a thanks for all the answers. Finally tool the plunge today after a trip into Self Edge (great shop with great staff). I asked about Onis but after trying on a pair of Iron Hearts, I was sold. These things feel like they could stop bullets, and durability's one of the things I was looking for. The Onis are next...
