just soaked mine at about 7 months. they fit a bit tighter
So I'm now at four months. Should I give a soak or a wash? This is my first raw denim experience, so I'm unsure.
modernART, have you ever thought about cuffing them? I can't help but think that the inseam is an inch or two away from a perfect fit.
thanks for the input, reversal. the inseam has definitely been bugging me for a while now, but i'm still unsure on what to do. i have a few options -
1. as you said, cuff them. i've never really been a big fan of cuffing my jeans (actually, come to think of it, i've never cuffed my jeans), so i'm pretty reluctant with doing it with the unbranded, but it's something i would consider as a last resort.
2. i can hem them, but i've read a lot of comments from people on forums saying you should never hem before the first wash because of shrinkage. if i do decided to hem them, though, the next question becomes, how much of a hem and should i taper?
i think for now i'm going to leave them as-is and maybe by the end of march i'll have a better idea of what i want to do.
as a little FYI for anyone who has been following my progress, the unbranded skinny has a 36" inseam (according to the unbranded website) and my jeans before the unbranded (APC new cure and new standard) had a 34" inseam, so that 2" difference definitely makes a difference.
