i didnt listen but i know for sure i have more shrinkage left.
im gonna hot wash no spin tommorow because i get hotter water out of my washer rather than my tub.
if i run them through the dryer will it soften up to the point where they wont be stiff enough to set in stacks an creaeses? iv

I know what I'm talking about better than everybody who posts here regularly. What I meant was to give them a cold soak initially, and then to work out all the shrinkage after some wear and stretch. Having shrinkage left in your jeans is really not that big a deal, just as long as you have the length gone, and a good bit of it out. If you want to put them in the wash and then dryer, you will have all the shrinkage out, but you will also have all the starch out. You'll pretty much have a one/wash jean, and if you've seen eternal in one wash, they're really not too stiff at all, especially after a short bit of wear. If you want to keep them stiff until creases set in, just give them an initial arbitrary hot soak. As I said, having a little bit of shrinkage left in the jean will not hurt you.

the extra shrinkage is a problem for me because im not happy about the thighs at the moment.

So, if you want the lower leg to remain stiff while getting all the shrinkage out of the thigh, why not just give the thigh region a boiling hot soak. If you want your jeans to remain stiff, that's what I would go for. But, if that's not of as much importance to you, do what you originally intended to do, wash then machine dry.

the fit on these could have been better sadly
Maybe these will hit the market place

but as jeans at the waist they feeeel comfy.

Eternal 811 are not really modern fitting at all. They're a vintage (66' slimmed down repro) fit, and most people looking for a modern, slimmish fit from them will be disappointed. Sizing down 1 more would really not have helped very much. If you want a more modern fit, get something from flathead, the denim is similar in quite a few of its qualities, while the fit is better (in my opinion). But, eternal does have the best vertical construction around, and the general construction and durability are also superior.

overall i was def. impressed in the quality. I knew that eternals were based off that cut, they def at a different feel at the waist. But i did spend time on researching the sizing and after tech posted his fit i was convinced.

I actually do semi like the fit except i think theyre stiff at the top and the rise keeps comin up like i got a boner or something so im seeing how these are when they settle down a bit.

knee buldges eventually settle down and look fine as the denim loosens up a bit more

The tighter the fit, the looser the weave, the more knee bulge you'll get.

That said, relaxed fits tend not to have as much knee bulge, same with tighter weaves.

Yes, even though I sized down one I still manage to have some what of a hip flare but it doesn't bother me.

Do your research it should be pretty easy, look at what models you want, how the fading is in your opinion, the specs (denim weight, price, fit, etc.) and decide.

Yeah, I like the fit of your 811s tech. From the looks of it, sizing down 1 reduces the flare.

It all boils down to choosing between this and xx-005s. And a couple of checks for some shows I'll be playing for the next 2 weeks.

flare it seems eventually goes away for about all of the eternals in 811. i've gone through every page on sufu as well. each closer to worn pair after a long stretch of time has gone down. initially, only is the flare. it all depends if you willing to let it go or not, the flare.

They are both unsanforized. The raw is just the one wash before the industrial wash.
