That sounds potentially awesome.  Can you get a cotton/wool blend that can be safely machine washed on cold delicate with hang dry?  Or will it need dry cleaning?

 

I'm always excited to try a new mix of natural fabrics (but no synthetic blends please)

You can hand wash or machine wash most cotton or cotton blend sweaters (but read the label on the shirt just to make sure). If you're machine washing a cotton sweater, make sure to do it in cold water. Also, you may want to keep it away from the dryer. Simply lay if flat on top of a dry towel until it is air-dried.

They're a really cool shade of blue, I like them quite a bit. Raw they have a pretty rough texture on the warp, and I haven't washed mine yet, so I can't tell you how they get after that. It is more of a steel blue than a traditional indigo, but not terribly hard to pair with things you'd normally pair blue with. I'm afraid I really can't comment on whether there's any fade at all, they're one of the pairs I keep nice, so they don't get beat up a lot.

Thanks! Was worried because some up thread made a comment about color change after a wash

I'm a 42R as well. Unfort for me it's been a steep and expensive learning curve with G button downs.

The Classic Large is great in the chest, but too long and too 'blouse-y" in the abdomen. The classic medium - sigh - some fit okay out of the bag, but after a wash some are just way too tight..

Im thinking the CL Large flannels might shrink reasonably enough to fit well, maybe with some alterations after the fact. I love the fabrics, but with all said and done, value starts to decline when you have to consider alterations etc..

You could also measure a well-fitting shirt per their fit guide if you want to make sure you've sized correctly for this one. If you don't have a fabric measuring tape, you can get them pretty cheap at pretty much any hobby or fabric store.

@gustin - love to see some of the flannels especially the heavy flannels and black watch in the newer workshirt fits

previous (arguably not a true blackwatch, I guess?):



It'd be great if they'd make one with a bigger pattern and a beefier flannel.

Yes please!

Two questions, and forgive me if they have already been covered.

 

-Are the American Antique Unsanforized (#256) sewing small, as has been the case with previous unsanforized/loomstates?

-Does the fact that the denim is 12 oz (i.e., lighter than fabrics used for previous unsanforized/loomstates) affect how much one ought to size up?

I'm a little iffy on the new shirt model as far as plaids are concerned. The diagonal orientation of the pockets for patterned fabrics didn't particularly appeal to me.

completely agree. I don't like the diagonal patterns on the pocket. hoping they keep the black watch pattern lined up normally on the pockets.. But also the new workshirt fits with the heavier solid flannels would be awesome.

Contrasting the patterns on the pockets for plaid flannels is the traditional way to do these things. I just checked my closet... All of my flannels have that contrast pocket design, going back to a 1960 model Pendleton Board Shirt. The plaids that don't have it are the lightweight cotton fabrics (I have shirts by Gustin, Pendleton, Patagonia and Filson that don't have the contrast pocket, but none of them are flannels.

 

Like it or not, that style isn't going away any time soon.

Yeah, it's a totally cromulent pocket orientation, just not really my bag.

I'm not sure if they sewed up small but I'm pretty sure the original run of the loomies made up slightly small. As far as weight, they should be fairly quick to stretch but I'm not sure it's of huge importance on predicting shrink/sizing.

 

Are you between sizes and debating whether to change an order?

Thanks for replying. I didn't back them during the recent funding, but they are on the stock page and I'm thinking of ordering a pair. I have a pair of American Sixteeners in 33 straight, which are very snug--too snug, honestly, though I think (hope) they still have some stretch in them. Given the too-small-but-workable fit of the 33 in a heavier weight, I'm waffling back and forth between going for a 35 or a 36 in the Antiques. I'm leaning toward 36 right now, but keep hesitating.
