Luxire are sending me a remade shirt to accommodate the shrinkage on the first one. I consider it good of them to stand by their promise, so I am happy to pay the shipping. The original is now available on B&S: http://www.styleforum.net/t/536819/luxire-white-shirt-15-x-32-33/0_30
Yep, machine wash & dry. I gave up hand-washing when the dinosaurs died, and I don't want a bathroom full of wet shirts hanging out to dry. If it can't survive the old shake & bake, it goes...
Wrong place.
I never drive in my shoes. I leave them outside the door when I get in the car. That way they can be polished by the time I return.

Also, the MOP buttons may well be genuine MOP, but they feel a little cheap. Is it possible to order...
Two Barba Napoli Gold Label Shirts. This is Barba's highest quality. So, the cotton is grown on Antonellus Sprezzatura's personal plantation in Egypt; woven by his grandmother while reciting the rosary; and then hand-sewn by his virgin daughters, Annunziata & Leonilda, on their wedding day. And of course the buttons are hand-carved from shells brought up by native pearl divers from at least 100' depths in the Sulu Archipelago... Both are labelled 15 1/2, but actual...
People actually wear these?
