How to fight localized stretching ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

I have a pair of DBG From 2/3 years ago and I really love them. They are very breaked in though and the butt is sagging like crazy. 

Anyone got some kind of crazy guru technique to re-tighten it locally ? I don't want to do something extreme and aggressive and I don't want to reverse it to day 1 fit either ...

I've considered soaking and trying to use steam and a hot iron but I never tried that kind of shinnanigans

Sadly, I don't think there's anything you can do, fabric just loses it's shape after a while. Putting them in the dryer should help but will obviously shrink it all over but shouldn't return it back to day 1 fit.

As far as I know it's like Jennifer says. However there is a method that I like to use on my dry denim that can shrink specific areas to an extent.. not sure if it would work with Diesel too:

 

Basically all you do is use hot water and let the steam flow up into where you would like to shrink. Since it's the back area, I imagine you could just try putting the waist hole over some steam. Let them dry out and they should fit a little more snug.. Though I'm not 100% sure I would want to try this with Diesels, they work really well in slimming up my APCs when they are feeling a little loose and won't put your nice jeans through the hardship of a washing machine.
