Seven Foot Cowboy jeans are sold raw state.
Although they are sanforized (treated to minimise shrinkage) we recommend a very light cold wash. This will give no more than 5% shrinkage and reduce colour fade if the jeans are washed inside out. They will shrink around 7% in the length if washed at 40 degrees or above - about an inch.
A jean wearers tip is to give them a quick cold rinse before wearing to remove some of the stiffness.
