Do you know how to stretch jeans? We only ask because it's actually a common question that we get asked when people find their denim is a little tight. Perhaps you've overindulged over the festive period (hey, we all do it) or maybe they've accidentally shrunk them in the wash... Whatever has happened to your trusty blues, it's an important life skill to know how to fix it.
Denim can be a fickle creature, and sometimes upon buying the perfect pair, you need to do your research into washing jeans, how the sizing differs from brand to brand, and how often you should wear them. Jeans can fit differently every time you put them on, and because of all that, sometimes, sadly, your old favourites just don't fit right anymore.
