@BorderWhippett if 21oz isn't a little tight when you start then you've sized wrong. They will relax meaningfully with wear, stitching at least an inch in the waist, and possibly half an inch in the thigh (if you need it).

The 21oz will not shrink much, if at all, and you don't need to soak it as it was been thoroughly sanforised already (not that your soak will have damaged anything in any way).

They look perfect to me. As you say, folks wear them a lot tighter than that. They are "super slim" after all. Congratulations on a fine pair of jeans.

That's really good to hear. I feel like these are at the very least, the best looking fit ive ever had on a pair of jeans. My only experience was some 14oz, as well as 14oz stretch Kato brand; so tight denim still kinda scares me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@BorderWhippett I think you’ll find they will be very comfortable after a few weeks of solid wear. Just the weight and initial stiffness will lead you to experience them as tighter than they actually are.

@Oaktavia looking good brother. That is great work for a couple of months wear.

Hi everyone, hope you’re all well and staying safe. I have a question regarding my 555-01s and thought this would be the place to tap into the best knowledge and experience. I’ve lost 20kg/3 stone over the past year and as a result my jeans are not quite fitting me as they used to. Short of putting all the weight back on, does anyone have any suggestions about maybe getting the jeans to shrink down a little? I assume they wouldn’t shrink down beyond their original measurements even with a hot machine wash? I know I might not have much of a chance, but thought it best to check with iron heart scholars first rather than just going for it. Thank you in advance

Hi @discobeard, hope you are well too.

You are quite right I’m afraid. You could boil the 21oz for an hour and tumble dry it afterwards and it would not shrink.

I’ve found that tumble drying them in my drier, which I call the Shrinkmaster 9000,definitely tightens them up every time,and since you’ve lost the weight you won’t be stretching them all the way back out. You’ve got nothing to loose by trying that.

Any idea when a restock might happen on size 32 and 33's? 

Not exactly sure which size I am right now, but see that both sizes are sold out everywhere...
