Anyone with non-selvage raw 5EP wash them yet?

If so, what was the shrinkage like?

Please use the ask a question thread. You've been here way too long and do this way too often.

Either way, they are sanforized just like the other 5EP jeans. Hence, shrinkage is minimal...

Honestly, I find that thread sooooo worthless, if someone doesn't answer a question right away, it gets bumped down and never seen. And then when people do answer a question, it's often many posts later, after several other questions, and the whole thing becomes a huge cluster-fuck. I never even bother reading it, too much of a headache to follow.

Yeah, we figured that out a long, long time ago.

gota agree with you here. i don't really find the small questions thread all that useful unless youre asking something that a lot of people can answer. kind of hard to find answers there to out of the ordinary questions.

At the very minimum, you could have used one of the pre-existing 5EP threads.

The pre existing 5 ep threads yes, but small questions no.


The small question thread will work only if the person looking at the thread ready to answer questions is knowledgeable about the topic. At least with a new thread or the 5EP thread there is more of a chance to target a knowledgeable person who is willing to answer. By using small question thread, you limit yourself to the people who look at that particular thread.

Hopefully you'll post a detailed shrinkage report in a future thread!

When you have guys like Who and Drizz, who seem to know almost everything about every denim company, trolling that thread, it's not really a good excuse to say that the odds are against getting a decent answer. I've read through the last ~20 pages or so, and almost every question that I saw asked got answered within that page or the next one.

That's great. It really is. Sometimes it takes 2 days though.

And that's unacceptable. Because, you know, we need to know about denim and clothes now.
