@Smiladon - no doubt you've been getting some good wear out of those.  how's life in that snug of a fit been?

It's probably the last time I go this slim, but mostly its the back rise that gets me. I soaked these while wearing and then wore them until they were dry about two weeks into wear, so they are basically custom fit to my body, but I'm just kind of over the super slim cut in general. I'll wear these for the rest of the invitational though, cuz they are still really nice jeans 8)
Its rough after a wash, but after a week they feel good again, meaning I can't tell i'm wearing 25oz jeans with every move i make :D

@Smiladon
Don’t worry you learn as go along... next time you will get it right..
That what happen to me fews years back, back rise was the problem.

Not only that I have size up along with a half inches more to be on the safe side when soak or wash.

Despite this Sting will still be watching you....

80’s song references aside, what cut will you be going for next then? 666, 888?

I love that you always catch my 80s song references, even when kind of hidden :D

It has occurred to me that you are in David Byrne reincarnated, which may explain it @Smiladon

First try on of these Bad Boys.
I think I wear them raw for the first couple weeks. Just to see what will happen  :)

@thomas01 Hi Thomas, just came across your post here ... how long did you end up wearing them before your first soak/wash? Just got mine 2 days ago and I was wondering how long it is okay to wear them before giving them their first soak.

Oh and I actually don‘t have any problem getting them buttoned up, will that change dramatically and become a lot tougher after the first soak?

Thnx 🙏

There is nothing wrong with giving them a soak straight away. In fact, in my opinion it is the sensible thing to do. While not loomstate or truly raw, there is some shrinkage left in this fabric. You may as well get it out straight away although there isn’t really any harm in leaving them if you want.

If you want to wear them in first, for comfort, you can but I wouldn’t wait more than a few weeks. The risk is that you will start getting wear and when you soak/wash then the shrinkage will move the fades an inch up the leg.

The soak won’t make much difference to the fabric or the buttoning up. Maybe a little more difficult the first time, but that is all.

 @seven-k    Perfect answer from @neph93


I soaked them after two weeks. The Jeans was stiff again after the soak.
But I had no problems buttoning etc.

Cool. If you are worried about getting fades after a soak then don’t be. It won’t affect that at all.

One other benefit of an early soak is that if you put them on while still quite damp, then wear them for an hour or two, you will set quite sharp creases in the front and behind the knees.
