Hey guys,

I have a pair of goreckis that I had accidentally sized up 2 sizes (XL when I wear M). Unfortunately, I am based out of Egypt and returns are impossible and costly. I love the pants and have worn them a few times but they obviously hang very loose and can't be used for anything more than a walk/lounge

I'm seeking DIY/tailor solutions for this. Given the design of the pants, should I install belt loops? Should I take them to a tailor to tighten the seams (if that is possible)?

Have you washed them yet?

I don’t really understand why you’d install belt loops since the already have a drawstring waist. I’m sure you could get a tailor to slim the pants down, but it’s not uncommon for people to size up twice with Gorecki’s anyway.

Machine wash on hot and tumble dry on high and you should be good.
