Giving them all a wash now, I plan on letting them dry overnight and wearing them all week.

Perhaps it's my skinny body that somehow causes the shirt to hang straight down. I've given them one quick warm water wash, and they fit great but are still long enough to tuck in nicely. I don't think I'll put mine in the dryer since they are fitting so nicely.

Post wash and this navy one seems to fit larger than the other two I tried on yesterday. I can't yet confirm with the other colors but the material actually feels much more relaxed and loose after washing and line drying. It's a fantastic fit across the chest now but is draping longer in this color. Not an issue as for the most part I wanted the dress collar style to be tucked in at work anyways.

10/10 polos so far for me.

What's the order number? Can take up to 3 business days to process from the warehouse.

Looks great. Really hoping that the downtown store opens soon so I can try on the Model 2, before doing any MTM orders.

Just did another wash test on the polos for shrinkage. Washed a Navy, Burgundy and White. Warm water wash for Navy and Burgundy, Hot water for White. Warm Dryer for all.

 

Washed Large for all. 7/8" shrinkage across the board in the length. Exactly what we were expecting.

 

If you don't want them to shrink or keep shrinkage very, very minimal, cold water wash, hang or lay flat to dry.

I assume shrinkage was mainly in the length? Did you notice much across the width at all?

This is pretty much how mine fits as well. S&M must have produced a lot of polos, since at their price I would have thought that some of them would have sold out already. I'm almost considering getting multiples of the same color.

1/4" on the half chest, but after wearing it for about 15 mins it was back to normal.

Maybe I'm confusing reports from customers, but is there a difference in length between rib collars vs. shirt collars? I'm a shorter dude (around 5'7") and want them to be worn casually untucked. Seems like most people are saying their shirt collar polos are long enough to tuck in, which may not work for me.

 

I was under the impression that the dimensions of the shirts were identical, regardless of collar.

I'm in a similar boat and found the shirt collars to be a fine length.

 

The collar on the other hand was wayyy too big for my frame.

I am pretty sure they are identical in shirt length between collar sizes. If you need it shorter it sound like you could go at least a half inch shorter with a warm wash and dry. I will see how the shirts settle after a few wash and line dries and decide if I want to try to shrink them up. I think a .5 - .75" shorter could be good for me. So far i've been tucking them in with chinos but they do drape me ok untucked with jeans.

 

Also to follow up, my navy polo is not longer than the other colors. The shirt was slightly damp when I tried it on the other day so was fitting more loose compared to fully dry so was just draping me differently.

 

Wearing burgundy today, sorry for the poor office lighting and wrinkles from sitting at my desk all day.
