I said I'll publish some larger, higher resolution photographs today. Here's 2 of the left and right knees, before and after the wash. They were incredible stretched just before they got washed. It was difficult to get them flat on the table when I took the photos. The photographs of the knees after the wash came out really good, because the jeans lay perfectly flat.
You can see the blue lines in the washed version, vs. the creases in the per-washed version. I'm really happy with how they came out.
