Thinking about getting a pair of lvc's I'm pretty familiar with the stf sizing, and I was wondering if the amount of shrinkage was the same.

I think the tags give the same approximation, but i was wondering about real world experience.

Thanks

Hmmm... I hot soaked my LVCs and they probably shrank over an inch in the waist and probably 2.5" in length.
