You can try and pull it through with one of these....

@Giles I’ll keep it there if it won’t hurt anything.
It all started with a leaf...

You can push it back through with a pin but use an eye loupe to get a good look at where it's coming through.  That's what I've done before without a problem.

Did another hot soak on these 140F. I like the fit even more now. It shrink a bit more in the waist, rise, thigh and inseam. Which I is exactly what I wanted. I love these jeans
Maybe so. Maybe not

My pair stretched a bit too much so I decided to give it a second really hot wash @ 60° C. That's the second soak/wash overall and these are unhemmed.

tag 38

raw measurements

after 2x ~ 5h soaks (hottest tap water, no agitation) +  1x 40° C & 1x 60° C wash

The top block fits really great again and I hope it won't stretch much. I hope for more shrinkage in length after further washes. All in all I'm pretty happy with the results as it was the very first time I washed denim @ 60° C and I was expecting the worst. Everything went fine and even the leather patch didn't suffer at all.

I just saw I forgot to measure the knee, Sorry!

Thanks @Dion

Mine will need a shrinking wash too. It's good to see how a 38 waist did in the wash.
Ohhhhhh that constitutional stitching!

Cheers, gentlemen! I'm also planning to post measurements of my PIHXHS I gave the same treatment today. They're drying at the moment.

@Dion Thanks for the 38" post 60° wash details.
I have been thinking about going to this extreme myself looking for more shrinkage!
I was hesitant as I don't want to ruin them, I commend your bravery Sir.  ;)

They’re 100% cotton so 60C won’t spoil the fabric. The only real danger with washing these is white lines caused by abrasion when creased. It’s agitation that creates the potential for that problem (spin in the machine for example) and that can happen whatever the temp.

The best method for avoiding these abrasion lines is to thoroughly soak the garment before washing. I use a shower head and just spray inside and out. Once the garment is wet the creases formed in the machine are less rigid and friction is redused.

The other risk is the patch getting dried and cracked st high water temps. If you’re particular about this (I’m not) then you can oil it before washing.

Yeah I always soak before wash for fear of the dreaded white lines!
I've never know a pair of raw jeans to be so resistant to shrinking before. :'(

^ it is odd how the same fabric appears to shrink differently.

I've been wearing them quite a bit this winter, & I'm liking them better than I did initially.
I'd still be happier with more shrinkage though, so I reckon I'll do a 60° wash this week.

Happy to help, Norrin! As neph already stated is a decent soak before washing highly recommended to avoid any unpleasant surprises. I always soak/wash inside out.

What’s the highest temp  you recommend soaking or washing? I agitate by hand in the tub because my washer is too aggressive. I would like some More shrink. 
Maybe so. Maybe not
