^^^ nah. With my next pair, I'ma try and size em perfectly so that I don't have to pre soak. See how they turn out
If you don't pre-soak Samurais, they're going to shrink a lot when you wash them, and then your creases, fades, whiskers, and honeycombs won't be in the right places after the wash.
Unless you never wash your jeans at all, but then the fabric will be more brittle, and your jeans will probably only last about 30%-40% as long as they would if you had pre-soaked.
