^ agreed. I have long arms (36.5") and I wouldn't mind an extra-long one button cuff. But the slight length adjustment and the sweeping curve adds some sex-appeal. Or... Whatever sex-appeal would be for a shirt cuff.

wow, ok, word to the wise if you are planning on getting the linen-cotton shirt: add some length to your shirt. thing shrank like 1.5 inches after one wash. sleeve length, collar, chest, etc. all seem to be fine (collar shrank as expected). but the length, which is supposed to be 30.5", is now 28.75 (29 if I'm being generous). hope that's all the shrinking it's going to do!

Do you do hot wash?
post #1235 of 1607

Yeah - did you hang dry?

I've already ordered cotton/linen in my usual size. I'm waiting with bated-breath to see your washing/drying process. I always cold wash and hang dry.

I'd have to agree with the shrinkage, mine felt like it was choking me after 2 cold washes and hang dried.

I'll be doomed if someone takes my previous post out of context...

The shirt I posted above is a linen-cotton oxford that I've been washing and wearing for a year. I think it shrank a little at first but it seemed that their shrinkage allowance worked properly. But I always wash in cold and hang dry (and iron).

I did a warm wash (gasp!), and hang dry. Ironed it out and took measurements and tried it on, then posted here.

I should also say, the first shirt I ordered from them turned out to be, what I consider to be, a bit too small (after a year of wearing and washing). So I adjusted my measurements for the second order and it turned out great.

No, I had an old account called RyanM but I can't figure out how to log in anymore (it's been a few years). I live downtown and take the subway & streetcars everywhere, ha.
