    So I'm definitely going to be picking a pair of these up, but I was wondering what's the best way to shrink these. Toss in the dryer on a cold cycle then air dry? Hot cycle then air dry? Tumble dry? Just toss them in a tub?

    Turn them inside out, soak in warm water for 45 minutes, then line dry..

    Kiya, got them today and they are AMAZING. The denim is such that no picture could capture the texture. They do not look very dark in person to me. I tried them on and was in love with the fit even before the soak. They are in the tub right now with before/during/after pics going up tonight.

    Avoid the dryer and washing machine at all costs. Especially the dryer. It does not do good things to denim.

    Mine are hanging up to dry as I type. I hot soaked for 2 hours, changing the water once at an hour. There was a lot of shrinking in the inseam, fit pics when they are dry.

    I picked up my pair at Farinelli's today. I think I got the 33's. They are in hot water as I type this!!

    UPDATE: ok so I normally wear a 31 in say, Slim Jims and the SFx5EP collabs. At Christian's suggestion I sized up two and bought the SCxSE06 in a size 33. GOOD CALL!! Hot soaked and they fit just as they should now.

    Wait, you sized up two? I was going to size down one, is that bad? Did anyone who sized down get theirs yet?

    Sorry - my typo - I got 33's. I couldn't button the 31's up all the way. I had to suck in to button the 32's up and the 33's were pretty snug but not unbearable. I did a quick hot soak and then put them on while they were wet. While they were wet it was a struggle to button the top button and the inseam was noticeably shorter. didn't soak them for very long so I'm going to do a second soak tonight to try to get all the shrink out of them right away.
    Wait, you sized up two? I was going to size down one, is that bad?
    Dude, I couldn't even button my "true" size. Sizing down one would be brutal. I was on the fence between a 32 or 33. I could probably have gone either way went with the 33's figuring that it's a lot easier to do some minor tailoring than to deal with something too small to wear.

    whatever you do not NOT size down! I got 36's and normally wear 34's and the waist is tight on the 36's I have now.
