Levi's Vintage Clothing Shrink to Fit Guide: Video 2: Dip In The 'Tub

2 September 2013 - Tags: Video Raw Jeans Denim Levi's Vintage Cothing

In the previous post we showed you the first out of three Levi's Vintage Clothing to take good care of your rigid jeans. This chapter shows you: Dip in a 'Tub.The very first time you wear your rigid shrink to fit jean, climb into the bathtub and let them soak on your body for up to half an hour. Drain the tub, squeeze the excess water from your legs then get outside in the sunshine to dry them into your shape. Otherwise, bend and stretch while wearing them indoors until you can carefully slip out of them and dry them over the back of a chair. When your jeans are dirty, simply climb back into the bathtub and wash with a little soap. If you plan to shrink your rigid shrink to fit jean in the bathtub, buy your true size in the waist but two sizes bigger in length. After shrinking in the bathtub, make sure to stretch the waist back out while still wet: this method will help achieve a slimmer silhouette. A great alternative during summer would be wearing the jeans in the sea and let it sun dry afterwards.
