    Searched & tried this in the small questions thread... got buried behind a bunch of nonsense.

    Just got a pair of one-wash SC Okinawas in the mail, really unique, very rough / slubby denim.

    The inseam is pretty long for me though, these seem to be more like 35" than the 33" purported by SE.

    Question: how much more will they shrink in the inseam with a wash? If I can bring them in a bit might work w/o hemming. Waist is comfortable if not loose now, so shouldn't be a big deal if it comes in as well. Loose everywhere else.

    Since my other denims have shrunk a bit even if they were sanforized, or raw and soaked/washed right off the bat, figure these still have some room to come in. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this.

    No biggie if I have to mail them off for a hem but if I don't have to.. plus the original hem seems to generally be nicer than even a good chainstitch.

    I hemmed my pair right when I purchased them. I wore them for about 8 months before doing a hot hand wash and I did not notice any noticeable shrinkage. The waist felt a little tighter, but it has since stretched out. I cuff them about 2 inches and I am still able to cuff them 2 inches without seeing a difference. I was a bit disappointed because I was hoping to get some shrinkage for a slimmer fit.

    So, for future reference, I hot washed them (no detergent) and hung dry last night. This morning they were back to original size (32") in the waist, and had lost about an inch (34.5 -> 33.4) in the inseam. Gonna try rocking them with a mix of cuff styles and see how I like it.
