showering with your raw jeans on can allow you to 'mold' to your body, to your preference.
if you just soak, you can use hotter water and get the maximum shrinkage out of your jeans.

i think showering would remove more indigo cause there would be more "movement" from the water

soak and wear them when they are a bit damp, they can mold to your body and you wont have to stand in the shower with your jeans on

Not necessarily true. I can get it to mold to my body and maximum shrinkage. I just get 3rd degree burns after the hot water shower though...

^^thats hardcore. anyway, as long as you accounted for 501 stf shrinkage by buying the right size, it should stretch right back out after a weeks worth of wear

I wore them for a few hours when they was still wet and it didn't seem to work.
but they seemed to mold to my body properly. just keep em on for a few hours and then just hang dry em . they'll feel raw as hell once they dry

aight heres what I do, so first I do the preliminary shower just to wet em up then I go skate in em... then finally I put them in the tub overnight. Then I hang em up to dry and theyre nice and crispy by supper.

jesus. just hot soak them and hang dry. if youre worried about waist shrinking just stuff something in it while it soaks. if you want to wet set your creases [not necessary at all] just wear the jeans while theyre still damp.

yea wearing your jeans while wet doesnt really matter that much. they should mold to your body after repeated wear and creases start forming after a couple good days of wear
