So having owned a couple of pairs of 37's, preshrunk/special editions from Aero several years ago,I finally bit the bullit and with help from Cobblers have gone raw. First up a pair of 33's, got these off of eBay hardly worn if ever. Labelled 33/36 I have given them a good soak as they were frankly huge and I have read some folks soak and some don't I have gotten some shrinkage out of them, well enough in fact that I don't need to roll them up Nice denim which is a gorgeous blue colour. So come Christmas, I get the GF to order on Black Friday a pair of 44's I got these Christmas Day and again a good soak before like the 33's I wear the heck out of them For me I have already learned buy more to size, the 44's being 32/34 and I have to say I prefer this cut out of the pair. The denim is superb and with a 30% discount via LVC she was happier to buy! These are a really nice cut and much less baggy colour wise more blue/black...very different when next to each other So sadly, I fear another obsession has started and am looking forward to some heavy wear outta them. I have seen some threads up here and Steve has given me some sites to look at, so anyone else got any tips/images to break these suckers in. Again thanks for your help Steve!
