I think they were soaked before I bought them and I soaked them again after I got them. I’ll probably soak them once more for good measure

If this of any help, these were my measurements. I bought them new so your shrinkage results may vary.

Hello, I hope everyone is doing well. I bought a pair of these, took delivery on 11th July. This is my first time with this type of denim and today is wear day 17 for these.

All went well until days of wear 11. On day 10 night, we went to a birthday party in a club, although I hung the Jean's when I came home, next day the smell of stale cigarette smoke was not nice.

I wore them to do the weekly shop, but still not nice. Decided to soak.

20 minutes in look warm water, yellow tinge in the water, which I think comes from the indigo and hung to drip dry over the bath. The puddles formed under them, were very blue.

After hanging for a couple of hours, they had developed a smell which I think was a cross between stale cigarette smoke and a wet dog...

Washing machine! I had being fighting this for many days. I'm a wear and wash, defo not a wear and wear type.

Anyway, I used laundry liquid for black clothes, on a wool wash. Took 43 minutes, I watched most of it. No sign of yellow or blue.

After they dried : waste; seat; thighs and knees seemed to be back to delivery sizes, leg a little shorter.

Perfect comfortable fit, I'm delighted  ;D

@JPW

The yellow tinge is from the starch in the fabric

@JPW I was getting scarred reading through your post but so, so glad that it had a happy ending! How are they smelling now they are out of the washing machine? Also, how is your hand healing up??

Thanks for the update and wishing you many many more happy years of wear and washing with them!

Hi Graham, thanks for asking, hand is healing well. Jean's smell lovely, I really don't like the smell of stale cigarette smoke, have no problem with pipes or cigars.

Delighted with the Prontos, been looking on IH site today,  planning the 2nd pair. Still trying to decide though.

Yep, these definitely had me thinking the same. It's really quite a beautiful denim, so it's a shame that it won't be reproduced. If stock in my size gets dangerously low then I'll be making a serious consideration!
