I love this denim and this cut and together they make a great pair of jeans. Sadly I can never make the dims work for me. Every time there is a restock I have a naive hope that the thigh will get slightly larger or the waist slightly smaller...

Do I wait on the dad-fit 888s, or pour myself into the rockstar 555s? Own both cuts already and can’t decide which way to go for SBG.

Sizing down on the 888’s gives you the best of both worlds. Comfort without a “dad-fit” while enough thighs and ass to make Jason Mamoa jealous.

Cheers @neph93 , hadn’t thought of that.
No probs. If you trawl through WAYWT then you will find my 888s-OD and 888-XHSib. They are both W33. I normally take W34 or W35.

I’ve noticed these are back in stock. Does anyone have any information on the shrinkage? The website states one inch in the waist and inside leg. I’m unsure whether this is a cold wash or whether a gentle wool wash at 30C would cause more than an inch of shrinkage in the inside leg. I generally don’t cuff jeans and a tag size 31 fits me fine in the indigo version of these jeans. I’m a 29 inside leg so I’m thinking a 30 or 31 inch inside leg. I’m really trying to avoid a hot wash though as it tends to destroy the leather patch.

Lower spin, and temps will limit shrinkage, but the best bet is to go with whatever your standard wash temp will be. So if that is a regular 40C wash then soak in fairly warm water and agitate, or just do the wash. That way no surprises in the future.

The suggested shrinkage is ballpark. In reality, and especially on a smaller tag size it will be less than an inch. However it is impossible to be precise as there are too many variables involved. Your best bet is to buy, soak/wash, then send them back for hemming. If you are in the UK that is a fairly quick turnaround.

Generally leather patches do fine in high temp washes if you oil them first.

Hi! One of our other members ran a shrink test, the results can be found here:

We also ran one in house, results here:
