anyone have experience with this? I recently dug out some LONG unworn, though still cherished shirts only to discover my stature has seemingly grown and some shirts are no longer long enough...


surely some of the old school metalers who have held onto shirts over the years have some degree of experience with this. any hope in getting a little extra length back out of old shirts? the most obvious would be stop running it through the dryer, and in the past I've also hung other shirts off the bottom of shrunken shirts while air drying with hopes they might get a little length again. anyhow, any better tips would be great! if there even are any... do any of you forum bro's even do your own laundry? hahahaha

Stretch them when they are still wet from the washing.
Avoiding the dryer shouldbe obvious, yeah.

Other than that - no chance.

Listen to Frau Kapalika, she is a good housewife it seems.

Plus stretch them like a maniac by hand, every day. Or bend them over your knees while sitting on your ass, so that you look like a dwarf-woman with huge tits. Works 100%.

And if they are not wearable at all anymore, sell them to some stupid kids. They pay hard cash for even the most fucked-up towel.

great thread! i experience this as well. i never throw my shirts in the dryer. that's number one. the best thing to do to "stretch" your shirt is to wear it the night before or two nights before to bed. this way it stretches out and gets lose all while your sleeping. it sounds crazy, but it works. try it.

Gotta love posters who think it's cool to interact with other users in their own native languages.

Ok.

Very Happy

On topic: Trying to stretch a shirt lengthwise just seems like a huge hassle, and the shirt will probably come out retarded looking.

I feel your pain, I have lots of old shirts that are just a bit too small. I will say that the ones I knew were hopeless and would never wear again i got a nice chunk of change for on ebay so there's always that. Otherwise I just hold onto them and maybe I'll lose some weight someday.

Use it as a tent on your next fistival visit, it really works! Other wise pull it over your knees and make some squats.

As a general rule I don't put any t-shirts in the dryer, helps preserve the print as well as the size. I wouldn't recommend stretching the shirts too much, probably will just damage them over the long run.
