    I was looking at the jeans in this link. Â I'm not sure whether these are shrink to fit or pre-shrunk (and their customer help line was not very helpful). Â Can anyone advise whether these are shrink to fit or pre-shrunk? Â Also, if they are pre-shrunk, should I order true to size or order up, assuming that the size written on the jeans won't reflect their now shrunken size? I hope this makes sense. Any advice is appreciated. Jeff

    Buy your normal size. These are definitely pre-shrunk. Shrink-to-fit means they have never been washed or treated. Aside from the wear marks, you can tell they've been washed because the seams have twisted.
