Hot wash and dry? Looks great! How much did you lose in body and sleeve length?
It's kinda hard to tell exactly in the body as the material puckers kinda like the OG Gorecki's. It fits slightly slimmer, maybe 0.25" in the chest, probably lost a 0.5" in the sleeves which is perfect for me.

Thanks for sharing this. The post-drying texture looks awesome, but the sleeve shrinkage would be too much for me.

This is why I sized up! Just don't dry hot, you might not get quite as much texture but you'll still get some.

It's a really great piece, maybe my favorite 18E shirt yet! The material is warm but breathable, soft but substantial feeling too.

I thought about sizing up, but you never know how much a piece will shrink, so I went with my usual size. I'll just stick with cold wash and air dry and hope that the texture pops a bit more--it's great out of the box, though. It's definitely an usual fabric that I would suggest running again in more colors.

I just wish the reissued Goreckis didn't have that embroidered(?) logo on the cargo pocket.
