dreigh, I've washed mine at 60° C and here are the measurements. It didn't harm the denim at all but got all the shrinkage out of them. I would strongly recommend to soak your pair in hot water for a few hours prior to washing them inside out to avoid any unpleasant surprises as stated before.

I recall Giles saying at some point that this is an enthusiasts denim. My interpretation of that statement is that these don't do well with frequent washing, as they loose dye so easily.
I really meant, they are unpredictable and require some love and care to get the best out of them.  You need to understand that and be prepared for disappointment if you don't do the right things. 

Buy them, chuck them in a hot wash and tumble dry, you've just wasted a shit load of dollars....

I picked up a pair of these. My first UHR and my first 888. I sized down to a 30 based on the roominess of the cut and I can do a 30 waist in the 55's and 634. I will have to stretch the waist, probably could've buttoned them up out of the bag.....didn't feel like working the hard. I'll post after the soak & wash

Sizing down in these is excellent, especially dor guys like me who struggle with the the 555 cut. I sized down two on my IH-888S-OD and it works like a 555 cut for guys with chunky thighs.
