Different fabric responds differently with oxfords typically shrinking a 1/4" and fine poplins 1/8' or so in the collar. Their RTW shirts, such as a 16 neck are actually a 16.25, to allow for this. So the tagged size is the estimate post shrinkage. Most suggest washing and ironing 3-4 times for the full effect.

Spoke with our shirtmaker, and he confirmed my suspicions. You can expect to see 1% shrinkage as long as you don't hot wash any of these first release shirts. I find the cottons that tend to shrink the most are cheaper fabrics. The fabrics we chose for these are really luxurious and you won't see much shrinkage if any at all if you wash warm or cold or dry clean.

Hope this helps in terms of your measurements and what we've got going here.

Guys, our shirts are seriously legit. I've been hanging around with the folks making them for the past few days since schools been out, and I can tell you you're getting bespoke quality handwork, single needle stitching throughout (which I can tell you doesn't exist in any American brands anymore) at a price that blows away any Made in Italy single needle stuff. You guys are going to love these shirts.

So, why is single needle stitching so important? It allows the shirts to be laundered without compromising the shirts fit and also allows much easier fixes or alterations if that's needed. There's no glue binding any of the shirt together, so it won't pucker after washes, and can be laundered again and again and again without having to worry. It results in a much stronger seam that is much more difficult to tear and also gives a cleaner look to the shirt with only one visible seam on the outside.

Most other brands will use a double needle seam that is less labor intensive and more prone to puckering and tearing.
