Just got these Thursday afternoon. I gave them a 50 minute hot soak (slightly warmer than shower temperature). I sat in them for the first 30 minutes then let them soak on their own for 20 more minutes. Took them out and hang dried them overnight. They were still mildly damp in the morning so I wore them to school to dry on me. Still waiting for them to stretch out that last bit then they will be perfect.
I went true to size on these, tagged a 29 raw. I'm about 5'7 maybe 5'8 and 125 pounds.
I've already gotten those knee boobs though, fucking c cups dangling from my legs. Anyways, I can't wait to see how these turn out after whatever minor stretching they may do. Definitely slubby denim, this shit is coarse. Great jeans though, for sure worth the price
