Recommended Posts

I have emailed them  as I asked if they was once washed and they said yes I haven’t had a reply yet I’m well happy with them and Denimio service just was curious why they say preshrunk

If the jeans had been already washed you would have seen it on the leather patch or also on the puckering of the seams. 

But of course, an already washed pair of jeans can shrink further in another wash.

Sorry I don’t know how you get your photos on here 

You could use an image hosting site like Imgur and just post the link. On Imgur you don't need an account to upload, and you can make the image private so you need the link to see the image. I sound like an advertisement lol.

I’ve downloaded imgur but don’t know how to use it sorry for being so thick! I can’t even get a picture up! I got a reply from Denimio about the preshrunk denim here it is-

Preshrunk denim which is applied with the shrink-proof process, it shrinks less than non preshrunk denim.
This process suppresses twist and keep original shape

If you want a pair directly from Evisu, your best bet is to go through a proxy service who will buy the jeans for you and ship them to you.

I used these fellas a few years back... the service was reliable... they provide a quote so you can get the total cost up front before you commit...

You often get leg twist in sanforized denim, just not as strong as in unsanforized denim. It has quite a few factors afaik, with sanforization, tension while sewing and “unravelling“ of the threads in the denim over time all playing a role. But that's only stuff I read once and not actual science.
