A few close ups of FG and JE knit/sweaters. Clear weight difference, but JE doesn't compromise quality just bc he offers a much more affordable price range.

Anyways, FG ones are super chunky and heavy + Made in Italy. No one can deny the quality, but still extremely hard to justify the price.

I just bought a beach hoodie in co-mix charcoal and was surprised to find the care instructions said wash cold and line dry. The fit was good but not as oversized as i thought it would be and if it shrank a lot then it would be too small. Not looking forward to a fussy hoodie getting accidentally dried and ruined at $200+ (I did not get it on sale). Should I size up? Is this style was known to shrink? If so I will buy a size up, wash it, and live my life!

To summarize, anyone wash and dry a beach hoodie and know about shrinkage rates? also wondering if this co-mix stuff shrinks more than the garment dyed version, since it is not put through a dye and wash cycle.
