Would it be recommended to soak these prior to wearing?



My concern is if I don't soak them, it will wear out a lot quicker,and if I do, they will shrink to a point that I won't be able to put them on....they just fit

I was waiting for the stretch before soaking

Those look nice!.. Black?..

i am pretty sure they're raw? so yes you should soak them which does shrink them so........

not soaking raw does wear faster, i find raw jeans stretch easier after soak. how tight are they now?

Jimmy - I would say I probably have maybe give/take 1/2 inch to spare on the waist....If I showered them them on....would that help with the shrinking....instead of just a plain soaking in cold water?

you dont waste anytime do you gollotti.
the legs dont look really tight at all but the waist needs to stretch slightly if anything.

my suggestion would be cutting a piece of timber to wedge in the waist band, as tight as you can get it to button up then do your hot soak leave the timber in while drying.
that way your waist should stay the same while the rest shrinks.

does that make sense to you?

that looks like a much better fit gollotti.

you mean buttoning is a bitch because when you unbutton you should just do the first one then rip/pull the rest off.

^ Feels much better as well....thanks for the tip

Yeah.....I continue to try that button pull move until I realize that it has a zipper  :'(

This is my only pair with a zipper so gotta rethink the pull method each time I wear it.
