Shrinking of dry jeans?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I FINALLY got my dry selvage Nudie RR's, and I love 'em. However, right now, the length on them is about PERFECT. I can probably lose another 1cm, but that's about it. However, I'm worried that they'll shrink after I wash them. I've read conflicting reports... some people say they'll shrink a bit, other people say they don't shrink at all. So, what is it? I plan on washing them in hot water to get a nice fade, and I'll be sure to stretch them like crazy after the wash. Do you think it's possible to not shrink the lengths at all?

no, I don't think its possible... I think you'll notice them shrinking a bit in length even before the first wash.

How long have you been wearing it? Is it the perfect length after a few weeks of wear? If you have barely worn it, I believe that it will shorten even before you wash, due to the the wrinkling that will pull up the jeans. If this is the case, I can only suggest drycleaning. Since the RR raw are sanforized, shrinking is minimal (~3%), you could try and stretch the inseam after washing it yourself....
