The MF® Nouvelle Vague slacks come UN-WASHED and are cut so that actual measurements match the labeling AFTER an initial cold soak/line dry.
We recommend this usual protocol before wearing the garment:
- Cold soak for about 30-40mn, with occasional hand agitation.
- Machine spin dry cycle, and line dry.
These trousers are considered true-to-size, with somewhat of a generous waist.
A tagged W32 will most likely be the right size for an individual with an approximate measured waist of +/- 32 inches and with average body proportions. Note that your natural waist is a bit below the belly button level, not below the hips.
The size that will work best for you depends on how you like your pants to fit. Please refer to the size chart. For the leg bottom, MF went with a DIY blind (hand) stitch 1¼ inch hem.
Make sure you fully rinse the garment before you commit to cropping the leg to your cuffing preference. Style-wise, it's recommended hemming and not “roll-up” cuffing.
✦ Machine wash on DELICATE when needed, cold water, mild eco-friendly detergent.
✦ Hang dry.
✦ Refrain from using the “heavy-duty” cycle setting on your home washer.
✦ Using a heat dryer is also not recommended and may result in excessive and irreversible shrinkage.
