anyone with experience with the s001jp model? i picked up a pair to take home to aus, and in my travels i think i've shrunk some. the 31 i got is probably slightly big around the waist, have not soaked or done anything yet. but wondering if the denim shrink a fair bit with a nice boiling hot soak/shower for a while?

dependent on the answer i may have to let them go in the market. i feel like a 30 would've been spot on for me... or if anyones a 31 and wants to take em off me happy to do a deal and let them go much cheaper than the 370 aud i paid for them..

suggestions? try the hot soak/wash/shower first?

hot soak in the hottest tap water you can get. then wait - chances are you'll put the weight back on with summer drinking.

i'll give it a soak, im normally a no soak till i get a few months wear so this will be different... football preseason kicks in soon for me so might have to just eat more. ha.

^they are unsanforized so will shrink a decent amount

is there a difference in the actual denim between those two models?

no, the same 17oz black denim on both

^if you're planning for some [really] hot soaking, slap some leather conditioner/oil on the patch, so as not to f*ck up the leather.

'have no idea of your fit preference, but soo1jp is in 5000 silhouette & the denim stretches out from wear, down the line. if you prefer the SLIM side on the 5000s, which is why i think you're apprehensive right now, you need to SD1.

ah.. great info and pretty much spot on. i want a little bit more room than my 710's currently gave me cause i went 29 in that and they are great but just a tad on the tight side in the crotch thigh area, the nice man at hinoya kept saying they'd shrink 2" whch is why i went with the 31 but then wasn't predicting that i'd lose some weight also.

thanks for that mate!

@robbeec

i have the s001jp and i found that there was not a huge amount of shrinkage - and what there was basically stretched back out after wearing for a few week.

i am generally a 32 waist, but play laot of sport and have large thigs so i have to size up too a 33. If i recall correctly I did an initial cold soak in the washing machine with no spin, then 2 x hot soaks in the bath (only hot water out of the tap) for about an hour each.
