Points well taken. Would you say that (per your example) J&J would shrink the jacket? To clarify, I was wondering if linen jackets will always shrink at the dry cleaner, or just if taken to a Zips type establishment.
I picked up a new Purple Label linen jacket for summer. Took it to a tailor to have the sleeves shortened and the jacket tapered a bit.
He gave me the recommendation that I get it dry cleaned first and then bring it back for tailoring because dry cleaning will shrink the jacket a small amount (due to it being 100% linen). Is this always the case or he just assuming I use a lousy dry cleaner because I'm in my early 20's?
Thanks for the help.
