    Default Tailored Sportsman..To Wash or Not to wash???

    I just splurged and bought my first pair of Tailored Sportsman breeches. I ordered a 30 since the Ariats I wear fit better if I get the 30 and wash and dry them than if I get the 28's.

    So the TS in the 30 is just a tad to big for my liking but I thought maybe if I wash them they will shrink and be perfect?
    But I don't wanna wash them and then they don't shrink and then I can't return them.

    Should I wash and dry them and hope for the perfect fit or return them (thru the mail / dover) and try the 28 and hope they fit better?

    Are they Trophy Hunters? They don't shrink noticeably. The TS breeches might shrink just a little, but maybe I'm wrong and I'd just gained weight.

    I've always machine washed mine, but hang dry them.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure they are the Trophy Hunters. I think I will send them back and just get he 28's.

    Oh how I wish I had a store close by so I could just try them on

    FYI, the midrise Trophies run bigger than the Lowrise and both run bigger than the TS breech.
