View Full Discussion @AlexPeterkin and I have each been breaking in a pair of these RPMWEST jeans since the last drop - I'll see if I can get some pics up! Fades are mild since these aren't too old, but they're starting to get there!
I am interested in raw denim. How much do these jeans stretch or shrink? I wear 30" waist normally. Do you ever wash the jeans, or wait until the fades come in?
I went true to size with these (31). They did stretch a normal amount...I probably *could* have sized down, but I'd rather them a tad loose in the waist (which will tighten up when washed) than too tight in general.
I actually have my pair in the tub right now (first wash), I'll let you know how they come out!
We usually recommend to wait about 6 month for the first wash/soak. All our denim is sanforized which means that the jeans will only shrink minimally.
