Shrinking LVC 1944's question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just purchased some LVC 1944's new. I'm normally a size 33x29, so I got a 33x32. They fit well in the waist, but I want to get some shrinkage in the thigh/calf and shortening of the inseam.
Would I be correct in filling a tub with hot water, soak the jeans while wearing them for 30minutes-hour then walking around in them until they are dry? Would this keep the waist the same and shrink everywhere else? Thanks for the advice.

just wash them hot inside out, even add some boiling water to them, then dry the fuck out of them.. max dry!.

they'll shrink a tiny bit, and stretch out with wear again, better off buying some 47's if you want a slimmer jean.

Don't use the dryer. You will lose the sizeing, on the warp (indigo) threads, and with it some of the indigo.

For max shrinkage, wash hot - I washed my '44 at 95 degrees celsius and got nearly three inches shrinkage in the waist. Put a correctly-sized piece of wood, or similar, in the waistband as it dries, to reduce shrinkage there.
