    Just got my New Standards in the mail that I bought off Ebay. The general fit and appearance is great, but the waist is a bit too big. They are fine with a belt but would be better if they were about an inch smaller in the waist.

    I remember reading another thread where someone (BrianSD?) recommended throwing them inside out into the dryer. Would this kill the jeans? Only shrink them if they are already stretched out?

    Is getting them altered by a tailor out of the question?

    Good call on all of the people who recommended APC, these are really nice jeans.

    Throwing them in the dryer will shrink them if they've been stretched.. It's worth a shot. It definitely won't kill the jeans.
