Also, it seems we're the same size in jeans, so I'm curious as to the size you purchased in the EGxLVC 501s and what the post-soak measurements are now? I bought a 36x36, hoping they'd get to a 34x32-33 area.
QR belt was $169. They said they had more backup stock (sizes) than was on display. If you could mention or PM me your UK info on QR belts that would be great - had been trying to find a UK supplier.
Measurements on my 34x36 pair post-soak and wearing while walking a few hours are currently 33x34. I wore them in the tub to prevent too tight a waist. The rule of thumb mentioned on Denimbar and Aeroleather appears to be 2" shrinkage in waist and 3" shrinkage in length. I got the 34x36 to achieve 32x33 and that seems to have worked out. Another soak would prob take off an inch each way.
The waist will stretch out some from the pressure while wearing. For the inseam wearing while damp created creases making them stack naturally. Hem is about 8.5".
