I had a full day of washing: 7 loads of laundry, my poor car (1st personal wash this year) and my 219.5 day old RRDS. For the most part, I wore these everyday since November, save semi-/formalwear days and a few weeks while they were on the DL (tailoring). Re. Tailoring: These were cut a few days after wearing because I did not want to cuff them the entire 7 months. I let the denim bunch up a little before the tailor took off ~1". And he did chainstitch the mofos. The crotch sprouted a hole on each leg around six months. I had them repaired at 182 days and then began my Veggies (which, I foresee, won't get the same attention as the RRDS). Anyways... We all know what they look like new, but here's a pic for fun: Here are what they looked like on me, before wash: Laid flat in natural sunlight, before wash: I used three squirts of Dr. Bronner's (Tea Tree) and warm-hot water. Once diluted, I lightly hand washed with the jeans right-side-out. I then let them soak inside-out for just over an hour. I did not soak when new, so I expected shrinkage. They did. Doh! I didn't take "before" measurements, but from my estimation, they shrunk 1.5" and 2" in the waist and inseam, respectively. The waist shrinkage is welcome as they were a little loose. I pulled on each of the legs for a few minutes until I got the desired inseam. Drying: It was too dark to take outdoor pictures, so I just snapped a few in my living room. I hope to have proper, daylight, pictures by next weekend. Post wash/dry: And for [rough] comparison: I'm very happy with the results. I am expecting some SS Dry (non-selv); depending on the fit, they will become my main project. I'll still wear the RRDS and Veggies, so the Svens will take some time. I really like the RR cut and plan on trying another size down in RRDS and perhaps RRDG, even though I much prefer DS' color. Thanks for reading!
