My first photo contribution to this thread.
Came in raw and also had trouble with the waistband not being according to the charts. My previous STF experience told me, that stretching it out was possible, so i went with a hot soak and used my trusty coat hanger to stretch the waistband out while wet.
The have since had 60 degrees to get most of the shrinkage out and i think that this more or less the final state. I'm pretty happy this the results!
They have seen daily wear with a few exceptions, but they are already starting to fade bit.
