Definitely raw, judging by the shrinkage.
hahaa If the soaking turns out disastrously somehow, I'll let you know.
They're hanging right now, gonna put them on when they're dampish.
Holy Christmas, I just pulled them on (and probably popped a double hernia in the process).
Took me about 15 minutes to get the buttons down up, not because of tightness on my body, but the stiffness of the buttonholes.
I'm really really pleased with the fit though, look like my search might be over....
