hey guys, i think i made the mistake of getting my pbj-xx013s hemmed too short (i got em done in-store) down to a 34. i'm 5'7" (long, fucking skinny legs though) and i want to soak them to avoid future stretching, and what not. however, i don't want them to lose too much length on the inseam. will drying them upside down help? should i attempt to weigh them while upside down and drying?
the alternative is to just not do a presoak, but i don't want the waist to stretch out after wear
The denim is going to stretch with wear regardless of whether you soak or not. The purpose of soaking before wearing for this kind of denim, aside from extending the longevity of the garment, is to ensure that your fades don't move out of place after the first wash. Soaking really doesn't have much to do with stretching.
How long of an inseam do you need? You'll lose about 2-3" off of the current length if you soak hot, but maybe only 1" or less if you soak cold and keep all of your future washes cold, avoiding the tumble dryer as well.
