^Unsanforized, shrink-to-fit denim that weighs 21oz presoak/wash and 23oz after touching water because of the shrinkage ...

Oh, interesting.  So do you size up when you buy, then soak to shrink, and then get it to stretch to you by wearing it all of the time?
The bitter taste of low quality lingers long after the sweetness of the low price is gone.

It shrinks to tagged size... So eg. a tagged 32 will measure ~33.5/ 34 and will shrink to 32 after a hotsoak.

Maybe it should get lighter in sunlight and heavier at night, that way you're always at a comfortable temperature underneath :)

Will these have the same measurements as the 634S?

Probably not.  These were nearly backbreakers.  If you go back through the old posts, Haraki had to constantly check on the denim at the factory to troubleshoot problems, and the mill still nearly decided to give up on it.  Add in the issues with sewing the jeans and the considerable expense in producing something that pushed the limits of what's possible as strongly as these did, and I doubt Iron Heart will be eager to do it again.

That is the plan, but all denim behaves differently, so there will be some variation.....
