    I have a pair of really comfortable jeans that have stretched out to the point where they no longer fit at all. When I wear them they fall past my ass and I look like a No Limit Soldier.

    Is there any way to shrink them considerably without having to take them to a tailor? I've tried sticking them in the dryer for an extraordinarily long time and that only fixes the problem for about 3/4 of the day.

    They've got some linen in them too; I don't know if that has any affect on making them shrink more. They're made by Varvatos.

    You can boil them. Next time don't buy Varvatos [​IMG]

    It's been said countless times, the only way to shrink jeans is dryer or hot soak, but it'll never be for a good long time which is probably what you're looking for. Stick around on this forum and you'll have a good idea of what to buy for you're next pair of jeans.

    Yeah, I picked them up for 20 bucks so I figured it was a decent deal- I only recently started getting interested in clothing, so I'm busily learning.

    How much are varvatos jeans normally? That sounds like a crazy deal. TJ Maxx or something?
