does anyone know if they're making anymore trousers? Those are hot.

How did the soak go? I got mine today and its LONG. I was hoping a hot soak could shorten it up a bit.

I cross posted a fit pic post soak of my RGT Dbl Indigo workshirt in WAYWT. I don't like double posting pics, but check it out if you want to see a fit pic. http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...ostcount=22966

soak+high heat dry worked, but my dryer is blue now.

Hey folks, I've heard that new Rogue Territory jeans will shrink 1" in length and 0.5" in the waist when hot soaked. Any idea how much it'll shrink in other dimensions (leg opening and rise especially)? I have a new 31 Stanton if that makes a difference. Thanks

I doubt either of those will shrink too much--maybe 1/4"? The denim is sanforized IIRC, so the overall shrinkage should be minimal

looks like i need to do a hot soak as well... exactly what does that entail? I wonder what height this medium is made for... i'm 5'11 and this shirt is WAY long both body and arm length.

Fill up your bathtub or laundry tub or a big sink with very hot water. Soak shirt in it for about 20 mins. Hang dry or throw in the dryer for a short time and then hang dry (although some people will say the dryer is blasphemy)

can I keep soaking it till it shrinks to the size I like? Or will it only shrink so much...

If you keep soaking it, it will eventually disappear...

Kidding. It will only shrink so far, but not sure just how far that is. Seems like the most it would shrink without hot machine wash is to close to the next size down. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I visited Weft in Vegas last week and talked with the tailor and SA... looked over the swatches. A pretty impressive concept.
