Man, I can't be the only one who chose OW/hemmed that's feeling kind of anxious right now, haha!

Those of you who did, btw, are you going to soak and or wash or just rock them right away? (After sep 1st obvs...)

Plan to wear the OW/hemmed straight away @YossarianRaw

Being last in the queue won’t harm us mate. In fact, having these in the house and not being able to wear them would probably make me all sweaty and anxious, so the closer to the 1st Sept the better!

Monday 24th delivery for me apparently. Postage costs must be sky high ... in all the years and with all the items I’ve bought from Japan, this is the first time it’s been by FedEx. Wow!

Why should we soak or wash the OW jean before wearing ? I think wearing my jean as it arrives

I think (and someone will have to correct me if I'm wrong) that the TCB OW proces is a 30 degree wash. Now, if you want to wash your jeans warmer than that there might be some additional shrinkage - especially in length. I think it's good to know that the cuff will stay the same length as you might get some funky fades/wear if you change the overall length at a later point.

Again, as there's probably more shrinkage at warmer temperatures it's a way adjust the fit slightly if it's necessary.

I'm absolutely no expert but this post

...says cold water?

I ended up adding an inch to my OW hemming request, in case they keep shrinking a little 

But if that doesn't happen it's more cuffs I guess

Thank you ! I will decide after trying my jean ! Are we allowed to soak/wash it before the start ?

Will we do the news thing with the date ?

That's the post I was thinking of. I'd say that 30 degrees is what's constitutes as a cold wash on a domestic machine anyways. If they wash it colder than that - the more reason to wash them before use.

I'm going to wait and see how they fit before I decide to soak again or not.

Ordered mine pre-washed and probably won’t wash again before wearing

Settled on W33, my usual size, but did leave a little extra room on the inseam to account for possible shrinkage down the line—worse comes to worst, I can always wear them with a bit of a cuff
