Estimated Post Soak Measurements For Japan Heritage Returns

Cierra here with another wash test! This time for Naked & Famous Denim's 14.5oz Unsanforized Japanese Selvedge Denim, Japan Heritage Returns. I took pre and post wash measurements, calculated the shrinkage percentage for each, and predicted the post soak measurements for all sizes (charts below).
I washed the jeans right-side-out, at high temperature, in a front-load washing machine, without any soap, and laid flat to dry. Last week when I wash tested the King Of Slub's, I put them in the machine inside-out. The results from washing inside-out vs right-side-out are as you would assume; my King Of Slub's retained their surface indigo and the Japan Heritage's faded more. Tough to get a good photo of this because the change in color isn't mega noticeable..
