We used to get complaints that we forgot to finish up the stitching on the sides on our utility shirts :) ... it was a staple of vintage work wear and makes for a cool conversation starter but if you don't like the style or just havin' em there, cutting em off wouldn't affect the shirt at all.
@stevefok it wouldn't shrink much, if at all. The soak is just so your whole house doesn't turn into a beautiful shade of indigo.
@RUFiO795 you sound to my ears like a 38. But get 2, make sure you get the size you love, and then return the one that doesn't fit. You'll make one customer very happy that missed out on grabbing a 40 while they were in stock.
@dqm45 I'm not well versed in the shipping laws but feel free to DM me and we can try to figure out a good remedy for your situation. 300 sounds like an outrageous cost we don't want you to incur.
Happy Monday folks.
Thanks for the reply Guys! I am gonna soak and wash my utility shirt and I will post the "post and after wash" measurments here later.
