tpun, your post is a bit confusing.

Which size did you take, and what is your true waist size?

on the basis of the one wash measurements given by tpun, I thinks he might feel the cut is wider or more loose than expected.

 

the measurements on the size chart said wasit and hem should be 76cm and 21cm after one wash and the measurements given by tpun  which are 80cm and 22cm. 

 

so he said he should be size 30 on it.

came home from work to mine today.

 

picked a W32 and L32 (but hemmed to 29.5")

 

measurements BIG style as follows:

waist: 16.25 inches

front rise: 12.25 inches

back rise: 16 inches

upper thigh: 12.75 inches

knee: 10.0 inches

hem: 9.0 inches

inseam: 30.0 inches

 

no pre-soak fits but my impressions are:

 

  • sizing is pretty much what i expected, not too loose or tight although i won't be taking too many risks with the waist. chart has been pretty accurate so far for me
  • denim is very dark and has slight irregularities in the weave which i like
  • construction is great and very clean on these with hardly any errors
  • raised belt loops
  • arcs are very flat
  • double red "devis" tab on the left of each pocket
  • green-cast stamping is definitely a nice touch

 

will try to get some pictures when i can.

 

big thanks to taichi-san, drapygo and aho for this. looking forward to wearing them.

^^^ so tpun you went for a 32 but think now that you should have got a 30?

I noticed in the charts that the one wash measurement include a tumble dry, I should think if you do a proper wash and dry you will get more shrink than just a hot soak.

have you ever thought about that once you go size 30, the waist will be too tight after one wash?

^Capsicum,

 

i had thought w30, my first order is w30, and then i really afraid that the waist maybe too tight if it waist is 72, for safety, i changed to w32...

 

but now the w32 hot soak is not my expertation.

 

now the waist is as following, i think it should really have a porper wash..., at last i will sell it or give it to my father :)

leg opening :

for hemming, i should hem for 9.5 inch, and after that, the leg opening will be like this

Have you only hot soaked?

a proper machine wash will possibly give you more shrinkage, it always does in my experience.

@tpun_ i agree w/every1.  either,  do a hot machine wash&dry or wear a belt for now until you need to wash.  

 

don't be too impatient,  yours havent reached absolute shrinkage just yet ... & careful in  soaking too hot,  you will ruin the patch.  if you're too concerned about the leg opening, then [this] is not your cut.

The waist is tight, but i could button up pretty easy presoak.. so it should work.. i hope so! :P

Tpun, i fully agree with brownmetallic.

A boiling soak will probably ruin the patch, better would it to give them a machine wash at either 40 or 60 degrees Celcius.

I always get the most shrinkage out of a machine wash, much more than with just soaking.

You can also let them have a spin in the dryer afterwards, just a short 10 min one.

Don't forget to turn them inside out with a machine wash to avoid unwanted fadings on the creases!

Just some shrink info, hottest tap water for 70-80 min -> "drying cabinet"  90 min

 

PRE / POST 34W:

 

Waist    86.5 / 82.5 (stretched by hand to 86.5 again)

Inseam 88.5 / 84.5

FR       31.5 / 30

BR       41.5 / 40.5

Thigh   34 / 32

Knee   27 / 25.5

 

Think these really need a wash before wear.. inseam didn't shrink enough.
