Well, I've decided to give them a 30 minute cold soak. As I said, they fit just about perfect right now, but we all know how that goes with the "stretch" of everyday life. And I'd rather suffer early then potentially change my fades later.

They're super long right now too, so an inch off the total length will be a good thing.

I think getting the shrinkage out now is a good call for the reasons you mention. I don't think 30mins cold is going to do much to them though and then you're not really any further on. When it comes time to wash them properly, exposing them to warmer water over longer time will just shrink them at a later date.
You might be right but I don't intend to ever let them touch hot water, so I don't think the shrinkage will ever be a factor.

Now then, we'll see if I'm whistling a different tune when I try to squeeze into the freshly dried 25oz Kevlar tubes in the morning.

After some great results from washing denim at 60° C I decided to shrink my PIHXHS. That's the second soak/wash overall. Note these were hemmed to 36 in from the start.

tag 38

raw measurements

after 2x ~ 5h soaks (hottest tap water, no agitation) +  1x 30° C & 1x 60° C wash

Although sanforized (but unwashed) I could squeeze slightly above 1 in shrinkage in length. I'm pleased with the result once again. I can only recommend washing denim at 60° C if you're looking for more shrinkage and don't worry about too much of it as it can stretch back where needed with some wear.

i'm going to put a pin in this for the time being @Haddtoo 555 and revisit in a few (stuck on my German sbg 777)

the wabash pocket bags and stealth arcs really do something to me, hopefully, interesting pocket bags remain a thing  hahahaha

@Giles do you know when another rerun will be initiated?  Or more specifically, are you able to request a one off pair from them?  Of course the one tag size that's sold out here is my size (34).  Just curious if I could still purchase one here and have it sent from Pronto if they have 34 in stock.
