@Jestocost i think the official instructions have to take into account maximum tolerances. If people get more extreme results than suggested by following the instructions then that would create issues regarding returns.

The facts of the matter are that soaking lubricates the cotton threads in such a way that they puff up and the constructional stitching integrates better.

The machine wash creates the agitation needed to contract the fibres making the denim 23oz per square yard. This also means shrinkage.

Following instructions will get the shrinkage out, strengthen the fabric and the stitching. Not followimg them may mean stitching popping out, early tears appearing at creased points, or nasty shrink related surprises at a later date.

A hot soak with agitation by hand may do enough to avoid these things but by following instructions, you’re doing a Ripley:

I will test them out in the wild today to see if I manage them in 26C+ weather.

I hope that is on the bike  :D  If not….   :o

Jeans arrived and I love them :-).

Struggling to button them up before a soak and been trying for 45 mins now hahaha. I will leave it for now and try again tomo.  :D :D :D :D :D

Wouldn’t worry too much…. Buttoning denim that gnarly is always hard. Use a pair of long nose pliers to stretch the buttonhole.

I'm cancer free

Glorious! What a beautiful phrase that is.

Well I will be you tomo night when mine arrive, the measurements are too big too me raw so I will potentially put them in the washing machine with no spin to get all the shrinkage out

You need to soak first, wash gently after. These are loom state so hopping over these steps may result in premature damage to material and stitching.

Assuming this is a front print.? And from the mock up that it is a solid grey, not a mark?

I predictably dumped the political post. Which I guess means I’m back  :D

I don’t think Finn’s comment about wanting the same things refers to politics, more to a simple taxonomy of human needs. Food, shelter, etc…. But most of all love.

Wow I’m excited to hear more about the fix. On a related note, I recently started up a new hobby…think they call it “ironing.” It’s cathartic AND afterward I no longer feel the urge to pull on my shirt hem 63839308 times during the day. So H might need to make a IH stress ball or fidget spinner once he renders ironing obsolete.

The best, least stressful way of tackling it is to learn to live it. The shirts still look boss.

I have the IHV-24 cordura type III vest. Love it. How about a full cordura type III? The combination of sharp technical material and iconic mid 20th century workwear would be perfect. Black is great but brown/tan would be awesome balls.

I like @EdH  I like a lot. But do it in heavy cotton.


Sorry for the long post but thought it would be good to share.

I always get a little confused/borderline irritated when someone apologizes for a long post. Long posts are great. Especially when someone takes the time as you have done to share knowledge and experience.

Thanks for an awesome post.

I’m going to share something here that I shared with @goosehd in pm yesterday. Many of you may be familiar with The Hold Steady and their singer/lyricist Craig Finn. He has a few maxims I’ve always liked but I’ve increasingly come to believe are rules for life.

Hold steady, stay positive, be honest. We all want the same things.

This may start a little dark but it ends full of love.

Oslo’s Pride parade should happened yesterday. But during the Pride Eve party some assclown killed two and wounded 22 in an anti lgbtq+ hate crime. The parade was cancelled due to security concerns.

Despite this, thousands took to the streets yesterday and today in an unsanctioned parade/demonstration. The Oslo 5-0 let them get on with it.
