    40's shirt cool. 50's and generation fit are good. Their shit is all over the place. I still have to sell a few pieces I own

    I have several of their silk shirts. A dark olive one, a Navy. A short sleeve and another long. Also I have the off-white versions in both lengths.

    And it's funny because i tend to veer towards the off-white. They look horrid after the wash (like a yellowed table cloth) but after you leave them out to dry it looks crispy.

    Whereas the dark colors...they tend to loose the color after the 3rd-5th washes. Looks weathered and vintage at the same time. Some parts of the fabric will loose the dye sooner than other bits so you will see some discoloration inevitably.

    I have one of the black silk shirts , from the first season they did silk, and its gray and very vintage looking at the this time. Just got the wine one from the current season, beautiful before the first wash and already faded after one... But I do 40 degrees Celsius washes though, cant be bothered with 30.

    I hand washed them in the tub, 1 dip, max 2 dip in a mixture of cold water and very little detergent.

    Then hang them out to dry.

    ^ Sounds horrible.


    However, I always hang dry as well, and only wash on 10 degrees more than the tag states. Had a chat with one of the sales people at one of the OL stores in stockholm about the silk shirts, she made this point about the dyeing method of the silk making them prone to fading, and that was part of the design /"charm" of them.
