    I have a pair of dry LF's that i have worn for two months. Now the problem is that I lost some weight and now it is really too big (about two sizes too big in the waist). Now what should I do: wash them really hot and then wear them or should I use something like sandpaper.

    Anyone got some tips?

    I would really mess them up first - like go in the woods - throw urself in muddy holes - roll around in grass - whatever pops up in ur head - I mean - they will never shrink enough anyway - so u could be creative...

    Then wash em 60 C plus throw in the dryer....

    Maybe u?ll get lucky... :roll:

    They don't call it LOOSE frank for nothing. Haha! 2 sizes! Congrats on your waist loss! And if it wasn't your intention... get well soon!

    However:
    You can always let a tailor hem them in a professional way. And Beatle's ideas aren't that crazy. It just depends on waht you like yourself. What I did to my LF when I was fed up with them (which wasn't a size-issue) was cover them completely with hairgel to see what happened. Later on I started scraping them with sandpaper, deleted the backpocket-stitching, took a shower with them etc.

    Just see how far you can go. But think with every thing you do what effect you want to have, and how you think you can achieve that. Like I wanted a yellow tone over them, so I used yellow hairgel (X-strong). Etc..

    good luck!

    Thanks for the tips. The problem is that I think its a shame to just destroy them. Specially since the LF discontinued. They are worn for just two months and still unwashed.

    Than go for the tailor option. Let a prof hem your jeans in the wanted size, and wear them another 4 months (or more).

    Maybe you should be seeing the "destroying" more as the actual breaking in part....

    Whatever - good luck 8)

    I'm sure that 7 years after he asked this question (and has never been active since) he is now relieved you've solved his problem...
