@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.

@mikegnthensome - thanks for the reply.

 

I meant $300 as an order total, not in shipping charges!  Sorry about the confusion.

 

In any case, I went ahead and placed my order.  Waiting to get my first TS shirts.

@mikegnthensome I was wondering when you might be restocking some L/42 Ts, you're almost completely sold out on the site. Thanks.

 

BTW, I've also finished soaking-soaking-washing my Utility Shirt in Cone Mills Indigo Selvage Canvas. It's a great shirt, but it's so heavy duty and still so stiff, I can't imagine ever being able to break it in. I feel like I'd have to single-handedly build a railway before it makes sense as an item of clothing.

@mikegnthensome - Any word on a new Telegraph collection or similar? I love what TS comes out with for them...

@1989thenumber I believe in you my man. Rome wasn't build in a day ... just put that sucker through hell. You have my word that it will break in and wear wonderfully. 

 

We're re-stocking our T's soon but we're going to give em a little facelift :). You'll see... can't give away all the secrets but it will be worth the wait.

@th3buhbuh I bet you're going to be pretty thrilled come Thursday (2/4). You know, because it's one day away from Friday... and just maybe there will be a little something special waiting for you from us.

One of my bigger clothing related regrets was not purchasing that telegraph jacket in stretch wool from about a year ago...  That looked like a nice piece to dress up a bit for a dinner or evening event.  I'm pumped up for Thursday's drop now.

I just got one in today and wow.

 

Looking at it in the mirror it really does kindof hypnotize you but it's a super sweet shirt.  Really a signature piece that stands out in a good way.

All three fabrics are woven and printed in Japan, and those people don't play. The quality of the shirting they produce is always outstanding.

 

Any advice on care?


I was thinking of running it through a cold was with woolite dark to try to get it fixed in so it wouldn't bleed too much.

 

Does this fabric wear in soft?  Seems like a nice breathable weave.

The birdseye? I grabbed it in brown. I do really like it. I think the navy version would have been a more useful option, but the brown is still very solid.

 

Maybe whatever surprise awaits us that @mikegnthensome alluded to has something blue...

I'm wearing the first run of the telegraph from early 2013 today...or was it 2012? Times flying and my memory is fading.

Regarding the upcoming Rover jacket in waxed canvas - has anyone had a tailor add lining to a sleeve? I really like the design but am not sure I will be okay with a lined body and unlined sleeves, so considering going this route.

Anyone had success with this in the past?

The edition I was referring to was the birdseye one that th3buhbuh is referring to, from around the beginning of 2015.  And yeah if I had pulled the trigger, I would have been all over that navy version.  Much more easy to pair for me.  The more recent edition in the ash and dark specked wool was still cool, but less functional for me.  I like all the editions though so I have high hopes for the upcoming release.

Great post on gram cracker! I assume that was you Mike. Looking forward to these releases.
