What I've found to work for jeans that are a half size to big, or stretched from wearing, is to put them in a pot of boiling water for 20 minutes (easier on them then a washing machine) then the dryer on high heat. You may lose some length though as well, so be careful.


Thanks for the advice, I will try.... hoping not to shrink them  at length too much haha

I predict that by the beginning of 2016 you will have joined us on the dark side that is SW&D. Come, peruse our threads devoted to obscure Japanese dyes and wares...

I washed my levi jeans a few months ago cold wash and hung dry. Now they're too tight my balls don't get to breathe and I have to give them away. Sucks cuz I liked them alot. But I rather have my homies breathe than have on a pair of tight ass leggings

Just admit it, your jelly on that scarf (that makes it both of us).

Hi 7, try one thing. I got a pair of jeans from A&F as a gift and they were a little tight. I didn't have a receipt so I couldn't return them. So I put them on for an hour to sit around the house (at first unbuttoned) and in a week or so they had stretched, not enough but some. So I kept a few more days and they fit perfectly  now. They seemed to have been shaped for my anatomy.

With a cold wash/hang dry I typically see no shrinkage (at least the jeans don't!)... But I imagine every brand and wash is different. One must always be careful not to achieve total nut-huggerness!

I'm sure there's tons of info in the street wear & denim forum, but you can probably speed this up by wearing them in the shower or bath.

Quick question. I am using tapatalk on my phone and I think I can't leave any thumbs... Is that so? Do I need to use a computer to thumb posts?

I can leave thumbs using the browser app on my phone, but unfortunately, I can't see who else has left thumbs on a post, or, for that matter, whether or not a post has any thumbs but my own. So I guess both are imperfect, but having used tapatalk, I like the browser app better. Fwiw, I use the Chrome browser on iPhone.

Thanks for the advice.
