So how do you break in a pair of jeans, anyway?

I would like some advice on the care and feeding and breaking-in of a bog-standard new pair of jeans.

Last week, I bought a couple of new pairs of jeans from the Gap. 1969 Brand. 38 x 30. Loose Fit.
They're just a little snug right now in the legs and ass. A little loose in the waist. How should I break these in and -- even more importantly -- avoid shrinking them to an uncomfortable degree the first time I wash them? If there are any other aspects of denim care that I should be aware of and have not mentioned, please feel free to enlighten me.
Many thanks in advance.
