Did anyone pick up the "techno lumberjack" shirt and found that it shrunk ridiculously in length.
Damn thing is pretty much too short for me now, I can wear it unbuttoned with a t-shirt underneath but it looks comical buttoned up.
I believe Alden's trees are made by Woodlore, which size differently than Rochester. Just curious really - on one hand the trees I have appear to fill out the shoe correctly but alas my OCD has taken hold in this case.How far into the shoe should the tree go?
