    Hi. I'm new

    I'm 19 and I'm currently in college, majoring in Finance at WWU, planning to day trade one day, and right now I'm learning to DJ (progressive trance, think Armin van Buure, Tiesto, and PVD) Once I get my technics (turntables) this summer of course.

    I've been prowling around the board for a week or two now.

    I've got a question

    I just bought some Express Jeans, 2 actually
    They had a deal where you buy one and get the second one for $25. I used to always buy loose fit, but I decided to buy some boot-cut instead. One of them is really dark and the other one is a brown sand blast wash

    I got size 31x30, they're PERFECT right now, any smaller wouldn't be too cool, I've tried 32x30, it was way too big, I'm afraid that it'll shrink when I wash them, but one of the sales girls said the jeans don't shrink that much, is this true?

    Is there anyway I can stop it from shrinking?

    another quick question, how long do you guys wash your jeans? I usually wash them every 2-3 weeks lol, I was living in the dorms and I was far too lazy, they didnt smell, or looked that dirty, but I wore them everyday.

    Easiest way to stop shrinking is to not use a dryer. Spin cycle most of the water out, then hang dry.

    If you don't have the time/patience for that, try a low dryer setting. The prime source of shrinkage is heat.
