How to permanently shrink jeans?

I've heard this can be done. How? I'd like to shrink 1 to 2 sizes on two of my Citizens jeans. They always seem to stretch out by the end of the day and if I lose 2 or 3 pounds they are just huge!

Thanks

That is, unless you get them tailored.

Boiling most COH works for about a size down I hear. I have never boiled myself.

You can, if you boil them correctly.

^Agree, I HIGHLY doubt you could get two whole sizes. Very highly. It's hard enough to get them shrunken a whole size.

...what's the correct way to boil jeans? You can't just throw them in boiling water for a few minutes...?

You put them in an industrial size pot and boil for ten minutes.

No it will not mess up the color.
