i have a pair of imperial raw dukes that i bought before i lost a few kilo's, they have been worn off and off for a year or so, as i cannot work in jeans, i want to shrink them but don't want to lose much/any indigo, will a hot soak cause loss of much indigo, what kind of shrinkage can i expect as they are sanforized?

i apologise if it seems like this question has been asked and answered a million times in the past

as they're sanforized, they really won't shrink much at all, at least not enough to make a really noticeable difference. Any shrinkage that might happen will eventuallly end up being offset by stretching.

He received an answer in 11 minutes so I applaud him.

He was specifically seeking the expertise of Imperial wearing individuals so his chances of receiving answers from Imperial owners is greater with a new thread than the jean thread.

Don't look in the thread if it bothers you.
