dump the jeans in water
if one shrunk most likely that will be the most itll shrink unless you run it through a full wash
so soaking it wont effect it as much an would even things out


Yeah, I'm thinking of dumping the other side in water as I can still feel/calculate the difference in how the denim feels, so I should be able to even it out with ease. Thanks.

Also, if anyone has another opinion or solution, then let it be heard because I don't plan to do implement the change until after the holidays.

Can somebody help me find the post where the dude spray painted his black jeans? I think he made them glossy or something like that. Any info would be appreciated because I wanna do something to my black paints.

514s r a straight fit, while 511s r a skinny fit. So about the only thing u can do to achieve a 511 fit is to get them tapered, if not then theres not other way

Hey I just bought an used pair of Nudies off of someone, everything else fits fine but the ass part is stretched to shit. Is there a way to tailor them to make it smaller? I know that soaking and washing the jeans will shrink them, but I really dont want to resort to that since there are no fades yet.

My current situation is that one leg shrunk due to beach water after a trip.

My question is, if I machine wash them, will they shrink back to even lenght, or will they shrink to proportion and remain uneven? Should i wash in hot or cold? And if continues to be unproportional, or if above method won't work, then should I just soak the longe side? Or am I just fucked?


I'm gonna quote one more time. If no responses, then I'm on my own. =(

will they shrink if you just put em into the dryer dry? to get them soft?


also i tried on some apcs today and need help on the sizing

how should i size on these?im thinking of getting new cures or petit standards

i tried on new cures and can button up all the way a 29 but its really tight

and i tried a 28 and can only do 1 button and i can wear a 27 in NS

what do you guys think?

how much will they stretch out and will they stretchout elsewhere too like the legs thighs?...

or do i go with a 30?

and do apcs bleed a lot?

^ I'd say 30, sizing down 3 on PS will probably be way too tight.

Sounds like you might be confused about your true waist measurement then, because there should be no way you can size down 5 on NCs and still have them button up suprised

^ Probably, although some people will only size down one on the NC. Depends on the look/fit you are going for.
