Hot soak -> Air dry.

Unfortunately, they'll stretch back out within a few days.
You won't lose fade lol, you'll achieve better fades.

You're an idiot.
Why wear it in the shower?
Just take a bucket and soak the jeans in there!

lol that sucks.. you can give them a hot soak. the hotter the water the more shrinkage you'll get. Soak them for about 1-2 hours. After the soak, they will stretch out again but not as much if you didn't soak. Your best bet is to buy a new pair buddy! lol
