    that fire hoodie is THE JAM!

    Sorry I've been a little out of touch. I'll try to get one of those in an AA XS (American Girl of Classic American?) out to you as well. I'll give you a call when back in Boston (am in Canadia right now.)

    Any plans to print those designs on a color other than brown?

    As long as this thread is going...

    5'7", 41" chest. What sizes do I want to look at--M usually? Decided I want to get a T for my sister so might as well tack on some stuff for me [​IMG] Totally dig the patriarch hoody. Also, early on in the Jay Allen experience, there were some pics of his Ts on female models. Did those survive the crash? I'd like to send them on to my sis with the shirt.

    Cheers
    Tom

    Those hoodies are easily the most attractive, distinctive hoodies I have ever seen. I don't spend that much time looking at hoodies because I usually don't like them but man, those are changing my mind...

    I tell people they can wash them in warm water and tumble dry on medium heat. The reality is that I don't think you could shrink these shirts if you tried. I beat the shit out of them during the dye process (tons of salt) and then wash them after printing. I dry them on regular heat with a commercial dryer. Any shrinkage there would be should be accounted for by the time they reach you.

    They generally dry in a days time as long as you space them out a bit to allow for air circulation. I've never had any mold/mildew problems doing this, and I do the same with all my button downs.

    Maybe your closet is a bit different from mine? Mine isn't going to be any darker or colder than anywhere else in my bedroom (especially if I leave the closet door slid open, and its stuck that way :p).

    Do you put them on hangers? I washed and dried my JA tee, and it didn't shrink an inch.

    Facebender arrived today (had given Jay the wrong zip code---YAY!) and I really do like the shirt waaaaaaaay more in person, as I suspected I would. It's a very tactile pleasure. I feel like a thousand silver-tongued hoors are liking my ribs. I like it. Very difficult to take a proper picture. Here it is on a very bright day: [​IMG] Size S is a good fit for a 6 foot 155 pounder.

    Dude, where do you put all your weight? I am just an inch shorter, and about 3 pounds lighter, and the medium stretches across my chest and is fitted in my arms and shoulders (I posted a picture of myself wearing the "Star" tee). I have reasonably muscular legs as well... The scale I use has recently been calibrated too, AFAIK.

    I am mystified... There are all these dudes on this forum with pretty much the same measurements as mine, and I wear a full size larger than they do... And it's not like my drop is so much bigger than you guys. I have a 40 chest and 31 waist, which seems to be pretty standard around here.

    To answer the origninal question, I wash the shirts in the machine on cold (as with all my laundry) and dry it on high. No shrinkage whatsoever (have compared with unwashed samples).

    I don't know either. I am 6'1" and 155-160 lbs. and I usually wear small (sometimes medium). I am torn between small and medium on these Jay Allen shirts.

    I have wide shoulders and this shirt hits me just about right. I find it a bit wide, but not obscenely so. I am usually between S or M, for the record. I think an M would make me look like a mid-nineties skate rat.

    If it helps you, or anyone else caught in between sizes, I'm always willing to exchange if the shirt doesn't fit the way you want it to.
