Idk man, I still stand by what I said before, those look like they have a lot more shrinkage in them. Those hardly even look slim in that picture. But as long as you like them then it's all good.

Lol the reason they don't look slim is cause I'm not a skinny guy bro.
Yeah, they probably do still have some shrinkage in them, & when I do wash or soak it next time that's when they will shrink a little bit more but honestly, I don't think there really is MUCH shrinkage left.

They're already pretty snug on the thighs & calfs. I have 23" thighs & 16" calfs, so they're not going to look slim.



But honestly, I was thinking of throwing them in for another soak or a wash just to get the rest of the shrinking out.

What do you recommend to get it out of the way? Hot soaking doesn't seem to be working great, you think I should do a hot wash?

You think a HOT machine dry would do good shrinkage after a hot soak?

^ Hot wash + hot machine dry would probably be the best I'd say. Maybe it's just the angle or something of the photo, but something about those look like they can shrink more for sure.

TTS 34, Gordon recommended 34 because of my thigh size alone.

Told you those had more shrinkage in them! Now that looks like a 710 fit, much more flattering for your body.

Yeah I am.

I was scared that it was going to shrink too much but it shrank perfectly! Definitely liking the fit more than before. Now I can wear the shit out of them.

soaked my 710's in boiling water yesterday and only thing that I found that shrank drastically was the inseam, any insights? and even though the waist for a size 30 on BiG says it's 31.5 I measured it yesterday and it was a true 30 and now when I measure it it still remained at 30. I think it's because I probably soaked it normally and not inside out?

Inside out or normal is basically makes no difference in terms of shrinking.

Are you sure you measured the same way both times? To me, it seems really unusual that the inseam could shrink "drastically" without any shrinkage at all in the waist.

yes I'm sure, I measured the waist right before soak to see how much it would shrink. I measured it with dip and it came out 30 pre and post soak. just the inseam shrank from 36 - 34

Fair enough then. I've actually had similar experiences at times with unsanforized denim, where the inseam shrank a lot but the waist shrank very little, but I've always had some shrinkage. Do they fit the same on you as before that soak?

I thought dryer damages the denim / makes it extremely soft.
