WK pants stretched out

I pulled out a pair of wk pants that are a couple years old. They are stretched out. I think I slept in them last winter when I had a bad cold. They are black; I wore them a lot.

 

Should I wash them and try getting them back into shape or should I take them to a dry cleaner?

Re: WK pants stretched out

I wash all my WK in cold water and dry them in the dryer. No pilling or shrinkage.

They will bounce back after washing but then the “knees” are back within an hour or two of wearing. I hate baggy knees but they are ok around the house or as pj’s, as you have discovered. After the first time, I stopped wearing them out of the house.

I don't normally wear my good clothes to sleep in. I'll first try washing them and put in the dryer for a few minutes. If that doesn't work I'll take them to dry cleaners. I love the look of the wk pants.

Somone sometime back suggested pant liners to solve the knee problem  Works for me.

Re: WK pants stretched out

I am looking for a solution as well. Every time I wear mine they stretch out. I wash them and they go back to normal but within hours of wearing, they get big again.

Re: WK pants stretched out

I have the pant liners. I have two pair of black WK pants. I suspect these are the older ones. I take real good care of my clothes and take my good clothes off when I'm home alone.

 

I'll try washing them first.
