I'm with you guys on the shrinkage. The Heavy American shrinks quite a bit, but stretches back to normal pretty quckly. Didn't lose much length on these. I found the Okayama standard to shrink a ton, and hasnt stretched fully back, but they're still wearable. The Japan Union blue's have also shrunk and lost generally how they looked colour wise after the first wash. But those are pretty light, 11.5 ounces and stretched back really easily.
