I got the same shirt in the light indigo last go-around.  With a cold wash, hang dry, mine did shrink a bit.  I didn't measure before/after or anything but it was noticeable when putting it on.  If you don't have any leeway on the 38 you might want to think about doing the 40 and then hot washing if you need to get it a bit smaller.  There seems to be some shrinkage left despite the initial pre-wash when it comes from TS.

How about the heavy natural belts? thanks
Any update on the belts that were supposed to ship in June?
  Interesting, seems to maybe be a pattern with this boot then.  I will contact J Crew.  Was worried about the wait for a new pair if return was required, but I guess with summer finally arriving I can take them out of rotation for a while.  Thanks for the advice, guys.
Having an issue with the speedhooks on my J Crew PCTs... some of them seem to be pulling loose.  These are about a year old, worn maybe two dozen times, I don't lace them all that tight.  Can any cobbler fix this, or does it have to go back to the factory?    
Worked at home this afternoon and had some time to give my 744 LTDs a little love via VSC and the ol' shoe brush.
