    I've got a pair of sharp bengts that I've been wearing a few months (they're the 6th pair of raw nudies I've worn).
    The legs fit fine because I've got pretty tanking quads but the waist is too loose, I was wondering if I hung them upside down into hot water submerged up to say just past the back pockets whether I could shrink the waist. I don't want to soak the whole jeans because I really like the dirty shiny on the legs.

    Is this worth a shot? If nobody has any reasons why I shouldn't do this I think I'll give it a try and post some picks of how it turns out

    you can do it, it won't hurt. I've done this several times. But as Nudies are sanforized they won't shrink too much and will stretch back out in no time. Unless you wear a belt to prevent stretching

    Oh you're right. They won't shrink-up right unless i dry with heat... Maybe blowdryer, or hanging them upside down next to a fire.
    The waist is very loose, like it bunches up under a belt when I tighten to belt around my waist. The leg fit is perfect and if I shrink the whole pair my poor legs will be 10 lb sausages in 5 lb cases. I'll share how this strategic shrinking effort works out. Thanks

    dude, the cut/model does not work for you.
    get something that's appropriate to you body type.
