Thanks. I'm going to try soaking it, and I got a bit of fabric softener too. The color is light enough to where I wouldn't care if it got slightly lighter, so that's pretty great too. I guess I'll have to run to the tailor.
I bought the shirt online from Saks after trying one on in the store, where it fit better, and was softer feeling. I did end up getting a different pattern, so the shirt maybe a different design or something else about it is different.
