    normally it is 2 in in the waist and 3 in the length.

    Kiya says it'll shrink 1.25" in the waist but it will also stretch back about an inch in the first month, and probably even a little more after that so you will get much of the room in the waist back.

    To buy or not to buy.... the 39" inseam is bugging me. I would hate to lost the chain stitch, but I don't have experience with how much they will shrink to have it hemmed before shipped to me.

    Give yourself 2-3" extra to account for the shrinkage when you ask for a chain stitched hem from Self Edge.

    It keeps shrinking each time, it's a very flexible denim. Anywhere from 1-1.5" in the waist and 2-3" on the inseam depending on how you soak them.

    How many of each size were made, including the ones being sold through other retailers? I want to get an idea of how limited these really are.

    How would you suggest sizing these? True to size to account for the waist stretching back out? Or +1?

    Whoa, since when is ~11" a low/medium rise? That's quite healthy there. How much would the rise shrink when washed? 5%?

    I've heard about 350 but don't quote me on it.

    As for sizing, I wouldn't size up due to the stretchyness of the denim. If they're anything like my pbj's they'll keep streeetching and streeetching. I'd size down 1 if it were me.

    size down one (true to size waist fit since they're vanity sized +1") might be what you want for the "SF" fit. You won't have a problem as long as you put them back on while wet. My LVC's were unsanfordized, I bought a 31" waist (usually would size down one inch in regular raw denim to a 30") and the waist fit tight at first, but is now just fine. Sizing up will probably make you not very happy a month down the road, I know I would have been.

    Fantastic denim. If these are the same cut as the SExSC02, I can give a little sizing info: My SExSC02 in size 31 are looser than my Flathead 3001 in 31, but tighter than my Iron Heart 634S in size 30.

    Just curious....It is said that these are ideal for warmer climates due to the breathability of the denim...Does that mean they are not ideal for a typical northeast winter (20 degrees and below)?
