    my weird guy deep indigos stretched out almost an inch after 4 days of wear. any of u encountered this?

    Yes, N&F typically stretches a fair amount pretty quickly.

    So I'm wearing my weird guy indigos after 30 minute hot soak. Shrunk a tad; knee bulging has gone but will probably come back. I'll post post-soak and pre-soak pics later tonight.

    halisray those look phenomenal after the soak. Kinda freaks me out how much the inseam looks to have shrunk. I hemmed my grey WGs a bit without a soak, so now I'm worried they're going to rise up to my ankles when I do finally wash them

    So yeah they have been broken in pretty much, there is a tiny bit of stretching and theya re super comfy now. Though they are not stacking as well as I want them to, and the knee buldge is pissing me off. I need to find a denim repair shop so I can get the legs tappered a little. http://i.imgur.com/ktx55.jpg?6622 http://i.imgur.com/8UVaV.jpg?9652 also i unruffed them in efforts to create better stack so there is a little improvement.

    yeah I'm pretty happy about soaking them before altering them in any way - the inseam shrunk quite a bit thankfully because pre-soak it was just ridiculous. The knee bulging has reappeared a bit in my left leg and quite honestly, and cb this goes for you to, the only real way to get knee bulging out is to just wear the shit out of your jeans until the denim softens up.
    so yeah i'll be posting some evo pics, with a decent camera this time, in the next few months!

    im thinking of taking weekly pictures and then in like 10 months time just post per week to see the changes over time :p
