My 777 xhsib and I've got no doubt they're rock solid, bar tack doing the heavy lifting.  I also already hot soaked mine

I soak them straight away if they fit comfortably out of the box. If they are a bit snug and I don’t want to risk it, I wear them first for stretch and break them in prior to any soak.

@Dmart Thanks, I think I might chance it as they aren’t crazy tight.

Start with a cold/ lukewarm soak if you are not sure, that’s what I do if I don’t need to shrink them much.

Yeah, I just went for it. I want to get as much shrink out as I can, even if it means a few weeks of discomfort. I will know tomorrow…

The waist will be uncomfortable for a couple wears, though you'll knock out a bunch in the first wear if you just power through.  I think the overall fit benefits from getting the shrinkage out of the rest of the fabric, also making sure you know where the hem and knee creases will settle
"Middle seam in the crotch" is a lot of joinery coming together, I wouldn't worry about it, yours looks good.  Gonna post some pics/changes post soak?

If you want to get the shrink out of the way, you’re going to have to agitate them a good bit. Not just soak them.

@Joberwocky Yep, will definitely post some after pics once they are dry and I can get them back on, haha. Are you in Philly?

@xtcclassic OK, thanks. I did soak them in the washer and let them agitate on delicate for a bit, but not too much…so we will see.

@Joberwocky Nice, I’m right outside the the city. Annapolis is not a bad place to be living though.

OK, here are some post hot soak/mild agitation pics. Dried hanging up overnight inside and outside in the sun today. They are much tighter in the waist and very stiff, haha, but I was able to get them buttoned and sit down. So, I guess that’s not too bad, but I don’t think I’m getting my phone/wallet/knife in there for a bit.

Looks good @Soleamp , you got them on so half the battle out of the way.  I agree, gotta log some time, they stretch back out in the waist nicely.  Personally I had to get used to the coin pocket before it was broken in, the extra 25oz in my right pocket felt funny at first
