Chinos are 100% cotton?

Just wash yourself in cold water to prevent shrinkage, then line dry to prvent shrinkage, then iron to achieve looks.

I even self-wash linen/cotton combo chinos.[/QUOTE

lee, you are tough washing yourself in cold water.
But wouldn't the cold water cause shrinkage?:icon_smile_wink:

The wife cold washes and air drys my chinos and OCBD's in the dryer, to no ill effect...there has been no noticeable shrinkage. During nicer weather, the items get line dried.

If they are a bit too long or big to start you may want to wash in cold and then tumble dry. Once they are the way you want them you can line dry, but if you have washed and dried them 3 or so times to get them right chances are they will not shrink anymore. I do tend to line dry mine though, they will last longer I believe.
