    Nice fit!

    I think you should just shrink them and decide what to do about the length after.

    Have the exact same pair. A 3-inch cuff really works wonders!

    Hot soak/wash (no detergents of course) in washingmachine (like 60C) and no hemming needed (unless you don't want to cuff them).

    Step 1: soak them
    Step 2: don't do squats in them for the love of god
    Step 3: profit

    Did yours come raw? Mine showed up in one wash which surprised me.

    Definitely raw, judging by the shrinkage.

    hahaa If the soaking turns out disastrously somehow, I'll let you know.

    They're hanging right now, gonna put them on when they're dampish.


    Holy Christmas, I just pulled them on (and probably popped a double hernia in the process).

    Took me about 15 minutes to get the buttons down up, not because of tightness on my body, but the stiffness of the buttonholes.

    I'm really really pleased with the fit though, look like my search might be over....

    Quite a bit actually.

    I'd say about 1.5-2in in the waist, and a good 2 inches in length.

    The most noticeable part was in the legs, they got quite a bit slimmer.

    Cheers for the kudos.

    So, first day and they've stretched a little bit, and I can actually do the buttons up without having numb fingers afterwards.

    Really looking forward to wearing these in, still constantly surprised by the thick/toughness of the denim.

    The silver thread woven into the selvedge isn't a bad thing either [​IMG]
