That’s exactly what I did with mine.

I saw that!  Just a cold wash for me.  Lowest spin possible. Already done. No marbling at all.

Now drying in the wind outside. Pretty windy over here but also raining. Might take until tomorrow afternoon to dry.

Will report back with pre and post measurements when they're set.

Put mine into the Shrinkmaster 9000, which I think finally met it’s match. I should get out the tape measure and document this so I know for sure.

Did you take pre soak/wash measurements @Paul9221? I have a pair of the 666xhsbb on ice in my closet and I'm thinking I should shrink em down and add them to the rotation.

I sure did.  Once they're dry I'll post the pre and post measurements.

Alright, they're dry!

Right-out-the-bag measurements:
  • waist: 40.6cm (15.98")
  • thigh: 32.7cm (12.87")
  • inseam: 82.8cm (32.60")


Post hot-soak, cold delicate wash, air-dry:
  • waist: 40.4cm (15.91")
  • thigh: 32.0cm (12.60")
  • inseam: 82.1cm (32.32")


And this is about as perfect as I could hope for.  Right out of the bag, the waist was a little narrow and the thigh a bit wide.  When I measured the waist after drying and saw that it barely moved, I was a little nervous about the thigh.  But the thigh shrank even though the waist barely did.  Perfect!

Just got my pair of these in yesterday. I broke out in a full sweat, had raw thumbs, and almost gave myself a hernia trying to button the top button. Other than that... fit is on point and the best fitting black denim I’ve ever owned. I hope the 888 comes back in a super black 21oz too.

I’m glad you got the full XHS experience. It’s what you pay the extra bucks for

Seriously, congrats in a wonderful pair of jeans.
