    Right now that is the plan, October and March or May, not sure. If I do I'll definitely be dropping you a line.

    sooo anyone know how dramatically a 70/30 rayon/nylon shirt would shrink if stuck in dryer on delicate cycle for like 10 minutes? what about tencel/cotton blends?
    why would you do this. just hang dry it dude. if you have to use a blow dryer or a steamer or something. I never put shit in the dryer unless it's stuff I don't give a fuck about.

    I'm all about the hot wash / hot dry on any clothes I really wear.

    stuff like oxfords really benefit from it, but I guess like actual dress shirts and stuff I send out.

    throwing on a heavy weight TB oxford fresh out of the dryer.. mmm

    wait, seriously? Does this make them fit slimmer or anything> My blue could serve a good shrink. does it soften too? fuck, I don't know why this blew my mind.

    There's a pragmatic school of thought among old-school oxford wearers that oxford shirts are best worn straight from the dryer and not ironed.

    so I asked my japanese proxy to ask a couple of sites for the sizing on stuff, and apparently after 3 weeks he still hasn't got a response. Really helps when im trying to pre-order shit already coming out this month thats selling out. [​IMG]

    TB shirts are pre-shrunk so not much, but when you first put it on you'll notice it fits a bit slimmer overall. Softens them up though for sure, especially over time. I mean warm/warm is good too, but won't shrink it.

    Yeah I can't imagine I'm the only one

    I don't iron any of my shirts but definitely see ironing oxford shirts the same as going to a BBQ and using a knife and fork to eat stuff as cleanly as possible.

    best temperature for drying oxfords? will save me a ton of time steaming shirts.

    and never really got an answer, would it be fine to machine wash (delicate cycle) my geller shirt with a spin on extra low or just hand wash it?
