Hi guys, I bought my first pair of dry indigo nudie slim jims today. I love the fit and sizing right now, but its brand new...

The problem is, I'm scared it will shrink too much (length is only prolly 1 inch longer lengthwise) and scared of length shrinking too much. Any way I can avoid too much shrinkage lengthwise?

Cold wash and hang dry. And stretch the jeans out lengthwise wile they are damp, before drying.

Toiletduck,you bought the nudie from Seibu HK? Is it still at around 95USD? I am interested in those too, but 1) the discount seems not attractive enough and 2) Seibu seems only stock jeans with 32 inches inseam, a bit too short for me. I guess we can always choose dry clean the jeans instead, given the cost is cheap, and you are supposed to wash it only twice a yr
