I hope this helps - quick out of bed shots, size 34. I love the fabric (as I said), but it would be awesome to hear about stretch & shrinkage. The waist should not shrink much more in the long run, would be perfect if it stayed that way or even got a bit wider. Is that likely to happen?

I would also have them hemmed, but figure I need to do a soak before that to find out what the inseam will end up with.

Damn, seeing those makes me realize how much mine have faded. @madmonday I haven't forgotten about your pics, but it might be Thursday before I can get around to it.

I bought mine over a year ago so my memory is pretty sketchy, and I don't think I measured them before washing anyway, but I know they didn't shrink much. And they stretch even less. Sorry I can't be more help.

Ok, so I think I can assume they will stay the way they are now in the long run. Thank you.

I did three warm - hot soaks and got but 0,5" shrinkage in the inseam. I think I'll get them hemmed now or should I have to wash them? Maybe @rocket can help?

Thanks a lot! Seems like I got most of the shrinkage then.

Not sure if this is the same material as the 710, but I got about the same amount of shrinkage (half inch) before I hemmed.  Haven't noticed any further shrinkage along the way, though I hang dry now.  Waist gives a little with wear, but I haven't noticed much stretch overall.  (Again these are the 710s).

Had a special event with out kiddos this weekend and realized after multiple "purges" of my wardrobe, I was in need of some nice, smart looking chinos.  @Winchy and @Sam helped me find the perfect and, and I would say it would out perfectly. I took the "easy care, easy wear" approach and immediately gave them a cold wash and a machine dry. I got a fair amount of shrinkage out of them, and they stretched out perfectly.  I was on the fence between a 36 and a 38, and since I know I didn't have to to play with soaks, I went with the 38 and machine laundered them.

Raw/Post-Shrink
Waist:39.8 / 38
Inseam: 32.75/31

Yes... these measurements are correct - crazy, huh!

Anyways, I have to say these are in fact the best chinos I have ever worn. Looking forward to grabbing a pair of 711 in navy for a slightly lighter/darker alternative to these for the spring.

Thanks guys - day went well and babies didn't even cry once lol - epic win in our book haha

Max, yes I threw them in the machine dryer as well- very glad I did or Wales they would have been a bit long/baggy still.  I have slowly moved towards this "easy care, easy wear" strategy and it works very well (most of he time haha)
