Shrinkage of Borrelli and Lorenzini

Do these shirts shrink a lot? I know its hard to judge but in general do they shirk quite a bit or just a little/none.

You'd throw these in the dryer?.?. I'd suggest hand washing or dry cleaning.

Well Mike, you can shrink clothing items by washing them in hot water. That being said, I dry my shirts in the gentle / delicate cycle on my dryer at low heat. Works wonders. As well dry cleaning is not good for shirts, best to wash them at home. Jon.

It's been my experience that, with Borrelli, there's little or no shrinkage, whereas with Lorenzini there's plenty of shrinkage.

do not put any valuable and washable clothes in a dryer.. Just dry them naturally. I've been told that washing in cold water does a little damage on cloth, it's the heat that kills the fabric.

Hmmm, my experience with Lorenzini is different from drljva's. I hand wash them and have never noticed any shrinkage.

Italian shirts tend to be pre-shrunk. koji

I wash and dry shirts as delicately as possible. I tried the hang drying for a while and got too impatient.

The folks at NM tell me that Lorenzini has improved in this regard, so my opinion may be dated -- as I really haven't touched a Lorenzini shirt in a couple of years (unless you count the Zegna Nap. C. shirts that I have; I'm told those were made by Lorenzini, but I am not certain...).
