I lol'd.

To bring a serious answer to your question, you can either toss them in a washing machine, or throw them in the tub like a regular soak, and put soap in there. From ISS: Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap was a recommendation.

get the hottest water out of your tub and fill it, soak for 30 mins completely submerged, hang dry. probably will only be temporary, im guessing there's stretch or sanforized tho.

starch
How do you starch jeans? What product do you use? Is it the powder starch stuff or liquid? DO you just get it at Grocery Store?

startching will cover the threads and make it harder to fade.

washing them will get rid of more indigo than soaking so a soak now after 3 washes probly wont do that much

alright so my jeans have stretched way too much, to the point where when i tighten my belt the waist gets all scrunched up together ...

whats the best way to wash em and get maximal shrinking? just take a hot shower with soap or some shit ?)

hey guys, I have a question about some jeans. I have some A.P.C rescue denim. I've had then for about 4 months, I've worn them every day. I'm thinking about soaking them and I have a few questions.

First off should I even soak them
If so what exactly will happen to them.
How should I do it and for how long.
And is there anything I need to know before I do it?

^the only problem with machine drying is the possibility of leather patches being warped. but if that doesn't bother you, then whatever whatever

^^i warm washed and machine dried my samurais and the patch didn't get warped... i think the temp of the water may matter more.. like when people do boiling water soaks and shit
