how long do you wait to wash them, how many sizes did yours actually shrink?
I'm thinking i may never wash this pair.
it depends on the denim with regards to how much it'll shrink, but in my experience if you wear them for absolutely ages without washing they'll only be slightly smaller in the waist than they were when they were new. the leg will shrink an inch or two though.
hand washing them is better than a machine if you can be bothered, it'll give a more natural fade.
i've known some people to wrap their jeans in a vacuum bag and then freeze them to kill the smell so they don't need washing. hmm
