^ yeah jskidder says they're sanforized, which makes sense

Sanforized denim still shrinks up to around 4%. This can be 1 or more sizes in the waist and some inches off the length.

^no chance. sanforized denim most times only shrinks 1" in the waist, nothing sanforized is going to shrink one or more sizes unless you wash it in boiling water and dry it in a blast furnace. even then it will stretch right back almost immediately. same for the inseam. not gonna lose more than .5" or so there, and not even that from a soak only.

Well the example I always seem to use is the Skull 5010xx 6x6. The one-wash and the raw version are the same jean, except the one-wash has been washed once.
Here are the size charts stolen off BiG:
Raw:

One wash:


What I think you are thinking of is sanforized denim from Diesel or something. All those denim have already been washed already, so yeah, you won't get much results shrinking an already shrunk pair of jeans.

those skulls are unsanforized, dude. the raw measurements are as they come, and one wash is after BiG does the soaking service for you.

No, the skulls are sanforized (look at the bottom). Skull sells raw and one wash directly. I bought my one wash directly from skull in Japan. The only models that are unsanforized with skull are some of their more traditional cuts.
