If I were to wash New Standards how much would they shrink in length?

My main question is, do they come in a cariety of inseams? I'm a 32" true waist and a 30" true inseam. It seems to me that in order for the fades to line up correctly, the person that wore them in would have to have the same measurements as me. My goal with these jeans would be to avoid the fake looking washed jeans when I want to wear something other than my dark raws.

Can anyone help me with this question?

Sanforized denim shrinks very little; half an inch, maybe an inch if you're really trying (hot wash, hot dry).

Hi Folks.

I have my new standard. I wore them for like 2 months and have left them ever since. Does this risk anything in terms of the fade?

I've gotten mines hemmed, but hope to rehem them after I completely break them in. Do you think I'll see more stretching overall?

Thanks.

Unless you left them out in the sun, they'll stop fading when you stop wearing them. They'll start fading again when you start wearing them.

Why would you hem them again? Did you not hem them to the right length the first time? And what does the hem have to do with stretching?

Sorry if this has been asked before ( i tried searching). Do the apc raw blacks fit the same as the raw indigo? Should i just get my same size in the raw black or do they streach more? Thanks.

I tried on a pair of black APC NS today in the same size as my indigo pair, and the fit was almost the same, but they told me the black raws don't stretch as much. Also, I was wondering if I could size down more, so I tried on a 26 instead of my usual 27; to my surprise it wasn't too hard to button it up and the fit was much better below the knees and around the thighs. It was still a slim (not skinny) fit. However, it looked painted on my ass, kinda like in the following pic. Will they stretch enough not to look like this? I ended up getting the 27, but I'm wondering if the 26 would work after stretching...

That looks painted just about everywhere.

I hemmed them, but noticed they got a tad bit longer with more wear.

Hahaha yes. I was referring to the ass only. The rest fits much looser than in the pic.

So the 27 (your normal size) dont look painted on? If thats the case then i will probably just get my normal size 28. That or size up one to 29?

Ok, I took some quick pics with a webcam (crappy quality, but I don't have a digital camera). There's about 1/2" of space around the thigh, it doesn't feel tight or painted on at all, in my opinion. For reference, I'm 5'9" 125 lbs (no need to tell me to eat, I can eat a whole large pizza for lunch), 29" true waist and about 31" two inches below the navel, where I wear my jeans. How does it look for the first day? I'm going for a slim look.
