Thread Starter 
Cobbled this together with some shit I had lying around.

Results:
Post hot-soak shrink, waist 29" :-(
Post stretch and dry: 30.5" :-)

You'll need:

Compression clamp. Hardware stores. ~ $Thirty-something
PVC pipe joints: Hardware stores ~ $1.29 ea
Girl and Boy Dog ceramic salt and pepper shakers ~ Lancaster County, PA diner giftshop ~ $7.95/pair



Reverse clamp format:




The usual...




Stretch:




Hang/dry...



Presto!




Do not try this at home. Only trained professionals were used.
No animals were harmed in the making of this feature
Any resemblance to your jeans is purely coincidental

Around '07 some guy posted a pic of how he stretched out the waist of his jeans with a disco ball. I recommend that.

This looks like a much better idea and design than the "maternity" pant stretcher I got off of ebay and snapped trying to stretch out the waist of my jeans. good job.

I have another idea... Why not buy your correct size in the first place?

If you tell me you hit your correct size and have a comfortable fit with jeans every time you shrink a pair that are supposed shrink to your size, I'll buy you a fucking beer, dude.

While you're drinking that beer, you can tell me all about all those jeans of yours that stretched out so much you can't wear them.

That doesn't even count downsizing for some.

I don't know, I never seem to have problems with unsaforized denim. I soaked some Studio d'Artisan, Samurai, Evisu, sometimes bought more than two years ago, which still fit me. I just compare measurements, gather information, and that seems to work for me. I don't have a problem with stretching either since I wear a belt most of the time. From my experience, if you buy the right size, shrinking and stretching aren't anything to worry about. More seriously, are you really going to buy me a beer?
