Full Count Denim Thread

Recommended Posts

Haven't soaked mine, yet - but they are with me now.

did go with my regular FC size and will probably have to stretch them quite a bit once soaked. I would assume that they don'tshrink as much as 10% and that'll easily stretch back near to raw measurements (or slightly beyond if forced).

I was surprised that the 1101 is not much smaller in the waist. But the thigh and leg is wider. I think with a very hot wash and dryer they'll be good.

It's that leg width thats putting me off soaking mine as currently they are too wide for me at over 8 inches at the hem and I'm debating returning them. beautiful_FrEaK have you washed yours again? I'm keen to see how wide yours are as we both bought the same size before I decide what to do.

Got my 1108ex, really nice soft denim. Fit of top block is good. The lower leg is larger than I normally go for, but I knew that when I went for it. They are one washed version.

Happy bunny.

^what size is it? The wide leg is throwing me off a bit, but if I try Aho's System I might be able to shrink them down to my liking.  If you happened to have a 36 I'd be able to compare...Maybe the inseam length would already help as indicator how much shrinkage is in them.

waist: 32 inches
thigh: 11
front rise: 11
back rise: 13.7

What's Aho's System?

Thanks @Niro Just to be clear: were your jeans hemmed or did they shink over 3"?

@jewellben Roughly two hot washes and a dryer before wearing them. This should result in major shrinkage and nice roping. Most pairs I got recently were tight fromthe start so I had to be more careful wwen washing them,but this one could use a similar treatment.I just hope I don''t screw up the nice patch.

@Max Power  Mine were not hemmed. 

I'm not sure of the raw measurements for a size 32 so not sure if one wash version does have a 3" shorter inseam

Looking good b_F, are you sure you're in Scotland? It's not cloudy or raining!

Thanks mate! We took advantage of the heat wave at the end of May ;) Weren't prepared at all for this kind of weather in Scotland...

@jewellben: Hej. I'm back from my holidays and measured my size 34. The hem is exactly at 8.25" and I don't think it will shrink much more.

So - is there concensus regarding the inseam shrinkage on the EX models? I'll try to get my 1108 EX hemmed this Weekend and wonder how much I should have taken away. I will try laundry store washing and machine drying to shrink them to size, so i think i should calculate 3" shrinkage?

First wash (50 degrees) on my type II. Also gave the 1101 another wash... and had to do a thread repair. Not sure what to do with them after summer...save for next summer or wear till theyre done?

Here's my 1108EX after hemming. They still feel huge, also because Iost some weight and bought a pair of IH x VS 777 that are the complete opposite in terms of fabric and cut. I think Igot the baggiest 1108 fit ever, but with hot washes and a dryer I hope they work in my favor. The right upper thigh has an irregular spot, but I think it won't be a problem.

Perhaps you won't get the fit you were looking for Max but I think those 1108's will turn out great going by the pre-wash pics!

Simply awesome Flo! I was really glad when you picked up a pair of Full Count as I knew you will create a masterpiece!

 

Here is my update. Roughly 4 months of wear (started February 1st) and 2 washes.

Great looking jeans both, looking forward to picking some FC up when I'm back in Tokyo next year. (If I can hold out that long).

@Max Power you have more fade in those than I get in more than a year's wear.

I wish I had Max's power of fading, it would actually somewhat justify the amount of jeans I buy

I have seen this yet but there are only limited sizes and only one wash versions available, unfortunately.
