The #50 aren't one wash, they are technically "Rinsed". I had a pair of the Fulton's in #50 line dry and I loved them, but they stretched like a mother. On top of the stretching I went on a diet and lost weight so they were nowhere near fitting me anymore. I gave them a cold wash and a high heat tumble and the waist pretty much returned to the spot it was at pre stretch, but they didn't shrink past that. I did notice that they got noticebly shorter though, probably an inch and a half. I then sold these because of my weight loss. I then got a pair of Fultons in XX rigid. Those fit me perfectly and I loved them dry, they were amazing. They stretched like a bastard and I lost more weight so now I have to sell them. They are size 36 and fit like a 38 still un-washed if anybody is interested let me know. I can wash them if somebody would like. I now bought another pair of Kyrre's in XX and those are damn near the perfect jean in my book. I found that the fulton's get too floppy in legs after they stretch so if you dont plan on doing regular washes to srink them back to size you should size down one or two. I don't understand why so many people buy Sewn's already distressed. Well, I guess I can understand it because it is done rather well and it does look really interesting, however their dry denim is amazing. My Kyrre's are cut from Japanese denim and are just great, thick and sturdy denim. I am surprised at how underrated Sewns dry denim is among denimheads. Oh and for "blank" just to help you out a bit. I wear a 33 in Sewns and in Nudie's Regular Ralphs I wear a 31. However, I buy my jeans where it hurts to button them for a week and I have never owned Nudie's only tried them on so I don't know how much Nudie's stretch, but I would buy Nudie's at a size 31 in comparison to Sewns. I hope this helps a bit.
