:?: Does the THIN FINN shrinks when washed (at 40?C and/or 60?C)... I bought, today, a pair of THIN FINN Dry Stretch in Size 29 (my right size in SLIM JIM), however I feel my new THIN FINN are a bit wide at the xaist and around my Butt !

The label reads "may shrink up to 3%", I assume they mean "after washing", but they do not say at which temperatute you should wash them to have maximum shrinkage ?

Anyway, I am afraid that they will stretch again after wearing. This is why I would have preferred buying a sowe W28, or even W27, but W29 was the smallest size available in the store (Men at Work, Leiden, NL)

Any opinion and advise on that ?

Thanks

Patrick

Thanks for your reply, but just a clarification: my English is not perfect... what does " CRIMP" means ?

Your jeans are dry denim which are unwashed so as soon as you wash them they will fade a lot. If you have worn your jeans a lot before you wash them you will have lines and marks all over your jeans from where they have crinkled and gotten dirty. The longer you wear your jeans without washing the better they will look.

Crimp does not mean shrink. It basically means, crease, crinkle etc.
