Smokin Ace's Flat Head F310s

Got these in the mail on 2/14. When I first put them on, it literally took me 15 minutes to get them buttoned.... before I soaked them. I decided there was no way I'd get them on after a soak if I wasn't wearing them to begin with, so I saw in a tub of very hot water wearing them for about 40 minutes. Needless to say they were rather constricting after that but I'm glad I didn't risk them shrinking past where I could get them on.

These pics are after 3 days of wear




And here's a close-up of the awesome fading I've got going on

i really like the 310, but im wondering if they will still be wearable after you eventually do a full soak (ie a wash, which will happen eventually)?

Self Edge says they stretch out an inch in the waist after about 30 wears, and even if these stretch out half an inch they would be perfect, so I'm not too worried about it. When I finally do wash them I'll to it in cold water which should help minimize shrinking (if I'm not mistaken?)

If it means anything, internet peoples suggested that my SExFH05 would not fit after a soak. After the soak, they fit similar to yours and now, they are fairly loose. Mind you, the denim is a little heavier and may have a little more stretching power. It is a little concerning that you have worn these for 3 days already as I would expect a lot of the stretching to occur in that period. I'd recommend not wearing a belt with them to stretch out the waist a little bit. Once you can get a slight slouchiness going on, they should look a lot better.

They've definitely stretched over the past couple days, but it's not really that noticeable because they were so ridiculously tight to begin with. I'll try wearing them sans belt and see how that affects them

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they will end up fine. Mine looked like blue leggings and now I wish I sized down 1.

as a heads up, if you wear those jeans with the coat you bought from me, the inner liner will go from white to blue
