Just bought a pair of one wash 1947 Sugar Cane's from the 'Japanese fantastic denim store' on Ebay. Great service, Michiy responds very quickly to emails. These are great jeans if you like the LVC 1947 cut. I need to take two inches of the leg length; founcd a local chain stitcher. Any advice on when to get them shortened; straight after washing, or after a few days/week when they've loosened up a bit. Please note I prefer not to turn the jeans up (to reveal the selvage) so I really want them shorter, and though I realise it is de rigour to hold off washing till after the next Olympics, the wife, god bless her, can only stand a month between washes. A small price to pay for a cracking pair of jeans. Advice would be most welcome.
