My pair hasn’t been worn in what feels like years until recently. I can fit them again 🤣 but now they’re a go to

***Update
I ended up realizing what the difference was with these 8301S, they're unwashed sanforized SBG, whereas most of the other SBGs are washed sanforized. I had thought that sanforized meant all shrink is gone, but that's not quite the case as the wash does make a difference also. So can apparently expect around an inch of inseam shrink after washing (though it's still odd that SelfEdges site says to only expect .5in inseam shrink, when other 8301S owners were saying 1 to 1.5 inches of shrink). Noob mistake!

I have a pair of SLB on the way at 29in hem, so will see how they go, and should be able to determine the right length for the 8301S based off that
***

I got these 8301S a couple months ago, haven't worn them yet still need to send in to IHUK for hemming (want to get proper chainstitch). Feedback from other 8301 owners on Reddit was that you can expect about an inch of shrink in the inseam after washing for these SBG. Since I gotta get this right I thought I better check here too.

Do people normally do a wash before sending in, or is it safe enough to just send for hemming as is?

And if the below length looks about right, I guess I can just add an inch to allow for shrink / and potentially honeycombs. Inseam below is about 28.6 in / 73cm, I'm only about 5"7 / 174cm so way too much length to wear without a hem adjustment first
