For people who have been wearing their denim -- how much shrink/stretch have you experienced? I would probably give an initial quick soak in cold water, wear around house to form them on me, air dry, and then either spot treat for stains/dry clean or freeze only for odor and general soil. Oi Polloi has sizing charts and says that there's almost no shrinkage -- none in the waist and 3/4 inch in inseam if washed in "40 degree water" (would you really wash jeans in 40˚C? I assume that means 40˚F, i.e. a cold wash). This seems pretty impressive -- very true to size. What have been people's experience who have soaked them? The soak would only be to get some of the excess dye out to minimize color transfer... Also -- stretching, anyone? I hear these jeans retain their size pretty well. Have people who have had them for long (8 months to a year, maybe) experienced any stretching? Thanks!
