    Thanks guyz!

    Can anyone tell me how shrinkage to expect on Borrelli? I'm hoping to maybe shrink the chest by an inch with a warm/hot wash. (It came in bigger than the measurements). Is this possible?

    dangerous to do intentionally. no way to know how much it would shrink. i think my barbas shrunk about 1/2 inch after dry cleaning. good luck big playa!

    I thought Borrelli and Barba fabric was already pre-shrunk.

    maybe i got fatter in a matter of days, that is distinctly possible, and dry cleaning has a different effect than washing, but my barba definitely shrunk in the chest after the first dry cleaning.
