My pair is not a one-wash. It is raw.

Well then there was an error in communication somewhere. I'm not lying. I'm not making things up. And I'm not leaving anything out or misconstruing what my experience was. And I'm not blaming BIG for anything. My plan is to buy another pair.
and when you soak a raw jean, cold or hot, you get shrinkage ... NO MATTER WHAT. again, something inconsistent in your story ... i have no idea how you can claim a raw pair didnt shrink. but okay ...
The pair I bought is raw. I soaked 'em in cold water in my bathtub when I got them home. I haven't noticed any shrinkage.
i still think you should have listened to them and to me and got a 34. but you do what you want and when your walking around like a crack dealer you can thank me!
I'm not sure why you're talking in past-tense. Let's make it really simple. I was in NYC. I physically walked into BIG. I tried on a bunch of jeans. The PBJ XX-007 in size 34 RAW fit me. The 34 ONE WASH was too small. I couldn't even get them on. The 36 ONE WASH fit me just like the 34 RAW. But the guy who helped me recommended I go with the 34 RAW. And that's what I did. Now I find out that they will shrink if I hot-soak them (which I supposed to do before I wear them?). That is why I'm asking what size I should get...
i bet if they pull your order you will find out you indeed got a o/w pair, which would make sense
Ok, I'm not sure how many times I can say the same thing. There is no "order." I walked into the physical brick-and-morter store and bought them. The pair I bought IN-STORE are the XX-007 RAW, size 34. Not the one-wash pair. I appreciate the help. I do. My question, STILL, is should I buy a pair of 36 raw and then hot-soak them? Or get a 36 one-wash? I tried a 34 one wash on in the store and they were WAY TOO TIGHT. So, if I did actually have a pair of 34 one wash by mistake, I wouldn't be able to get them on... Follow? Bottom line, do I get a 36 RAW, 36 ONE Wash or something else? You say I should get a 34? That's what I already have!
