As far as I am aware, linen shouldn't really shrink either!
Am not sure if you can stretch them back...

Sorry to hear about your trousers, I found 2 recipes on the net, have not tried them myself, but maybe they are worth a try!
Quote : Mix a solution of one gallon of lukewarm water and two tablespoons of baby shampoo. Soak the garment for about 10 minutes. Now the important part: Don't rinse! Simply blot out all the excess water with a dry towel and very gently lay the sweater flat on a fresh towel. Slowly and carefully stretch it back to its original size. Dry the sweater out of direct sunlight and heat. While this tip comes from the Wool Bureau, which verifies that the technique will work provided the fibers have not become permanently damaged, I've received reports from several readers who say it works equally well to unshrink linen.

in the mornings when it's tight, blame it on water retention.

How hot do you wash your clothes? 30 degrees is plenty for light every day soiling and 40 degrees is fine for medium soiling. There is no need to wash at a higher temperature.

Mapus, Santa is awesome and he works at Orchid Tailoring (02627-2115). His building (pink) is behind the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank on Khalifa Street. Take the life to the mezzanine level and it is on the left.

maybe you should think of passing them on to your kids / future kids.
