I've seen lots of chatter about arm length and what not, feel free to DM me questions. Our production lead is out today in LA but I can see if I can get you all answers.

 

More importantly, I wanted to deliver care instructions:

 

FIRST OFF: Should you choose to wash or soak your shirt, please do so separate from all other garments!

 

Most of you know or have been commenting about this compared to raw jeans. Just like raw jeans, this shirt is highly saturated with indigo dye and the dye will run. In fact, in the words of our Southern-bred production manager, the shirt will "bleed like a stuck pig".

 

With that in mind, the best prep to get the most out of this beauty is as follows:

 

  • Soak overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water.

  • Transfer to another bucket of clean water, and let soak for another 8-12 hours.

 

Now, you’re ready to wash the shirt in the washing machine. Wash the shirt by itself in a gentle cycle with cold water and mild detergent.


NOTE: if you wash this shirt before rinsing excess dye out of it, the simultaneous run of the dye and friction during the wash cycle may cause the fabric to fade. You’ll be left with a splotchy, less-than-perfect shirt.

 

Happy Friday all,

mg

 

Are the Cone Mills Utility Shirts supposed to shrink? My biggest issue with mine right now is that the measurements seem off. I bought a size 38 and it is larger than than what is spec'd on the website. The shirt I received has a body length of 29.5" inches and a sleeve length of 34.75 (or 25.5" from shoulder to cuff). This makes the shirt's length a good 1 to 1.5 inches longer than spec and also longer than any of the other TS shirts I own. It just seems way off unless this shirt is either A) cut wrong or B) intended to shrink.

The Tan Wax is fully funded.  Now we need some more love for the Washed Olive.

I backed the tan version. I like the olive too but couldn't justify getting both at the moment. Maybe I'll grab it in the future when they produce this run.

Notwithstanding my temperate climate, I have an insatiable addiction to jackets and, therefore, I backed both the tan and the olive.

I too am addicted to jackets but for this run I needed to show some restraint. Plus I acquired a type 2 from a different brand not too long ago so pretty much have my Spring/Fall jackets sorted

@loxo Unless you've gotten a mis-tagged shirt, we measured a body length of 27' and a sleeve length of 34.5. Typically, in manufacturing, standard tolerance is .5 so our size guide isn't incorrectly spec'd. Not sure how you measured the body length but you can send me a DM and we'll figure it out (I've holding in my hands and possibly reserving the 38 I just measured)

 

thanks,

mg

So you recommend to wash it this way to get the best fades or just wear the shit out of it for 6 months before doing the soaks?

@Stillmaticbeat There wouldn't be much difference between soaking it first or just beating the hell outa' it. Totally up to you... You will earn more stripes putting the denim through hell n back before a soak but if you soak it, nobody will know. Except you.

Click workshop and scroll all the way down to "funding completed: in production."  Says the ship date under the item.  Blackwatch jacket is 2/15 - 2/19 ship date.  That thing is going to be sweet.  I hope I don't see too many people sporting one in my town.

Hoo boy the Whaler runs snug. Will have to try a large. Great knit though.

Pretty true to size Steve.  Sleeves a tad long and cuffs tight but overall fit is good.  It's a great shirt.
