I don't have much really on the surface of them, so don't feel the need for a machine level wash. I threw some soap in the soak to help break up anything else and freshen them some. I really just needed them to shrink back though

See I call that a hand wash, no soap=soak.

^ curious why a soak as opposed to a wash? I always wondered why some people have 5+ soaks with less washes on their jeans...i have never soaked jeans after the initial soak. Is it supposed to bring out more contrast or is the point to reshrink jeans that have been stretched?

I have pairs that have 30+ soaks, never used soap on them.  It does just ask you have asked, it brings the jeans back to their original pre-stretched out size.  It also helps with general indigo lose, along with more contrast on the wear points as everything stays in the same place.

In my opinion anyway.

Green? It's the inside of my combs if you're asking which part of the jean

@Giles Quick question, does the waist stretch past the original waist measurements?  For example, I just received a pair of 34s and they measure 34" dead on.  Will they stretch out to 34.25" after soaking, drying and then wearing them for a couple of days?  I'm certain I read somewhere that the denim will stretch past the original measurement.
Thanks.

Website says this:

"Treat as raw: you will get about 1" shrinkage in the waist and the same in the inseam, the waist will stretch back out to pre-soak/wash size over time - so if they fit you as you like them pre-soak/wash, then that's your size"

But it's not an exact science so a 1/4 of an inch +/- is a definite possibility.

It really all depends how much pressure you put on the waist band....

@Giles @neph93 Thank you. I'll soak them tonight. Fit pictures are a little on the semi-awkward side I've noticed here but I'll make an effort because, well, I'm a model.

Two years of wear and tear.
It has been a a fun journey.

460 days of wear, 2 soaks & 10 machine washes.
