Well, I never went beyond 60° C (140° F) and you can get great results with this mode. Though, I remember some people on other threads went full 90° C (194° F) and could even beat the 21 oz into shrinkage submission.

Thank you. Yeah I might need to go up to 160F and see how it goes and maybe go up after that.
Maybe so. Maybe not

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.

Why do you say it's too aggressive?  Do you have a top load?

Yes I have a top loader. It’s a low profile agitator but it’s streaked a pair of Tellason’s pretty badly. Not that I care because they are beaters that I used when I was pouring concrete. But I don’t want my NT’s creased and streaked with white marks
Maybe so. Maybe not

After about 60 wears I put mine in the wash at 40 degrees. Must say I like the fit better than before. Still a very nice relaxed fit, but the seat has shrunk up a bit and i'd say there has been 1/4 inch or so through the thighs and bottom opening. I'd guess that the measurements now on these is very close to the 21oz measurements.

Ohhhhhh that constitutional stitching!

I smell a wash coming on soon, probably within a week or 2.

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

I was too curious after this post so I ordered both. The needle pushed it through on the first try. Thanks @Giles, that’s a handy trick.
It all started with a leaf...

The sun decided to hang out in Michigan for a minute so I took a picture. I plan on doing a soak or wash on these in a week or 2

I'm giving in, and buying some 888 UHRs...  I'm 6'1 with relatively short legs, and need some help deciding what length to hem the 888s to.

1955S measure: 30.4 inseam, 42.25 total length
Levi's 541's measure: 30.7 inseam, 41.5 total length.

The Levi's length is perfect, while the 1955S could lose half an inch (despite being shorter in inseam, they make up for it with front rise).

It looks like these 888's should lose 1 or 2 inches when machine washed.

Recommendations?  Cheers!!

Edit: I'll be wanting to wear these without a turn up, after they have shrunk.  The 1955S I have do have a turn up, and the measurement above doesn't take that extra fabric into consideration.
