    I hope you mean you had them laundered at the dry cleaners, stitches. Oh, and I just forwarded your last post to the little lady. :slayer:

    I happen to have purchased a number of both over the past 6 months or so - say 8 Borrellis and 6 or so Barbas. The Barbas, even their different lines (Napoli, etc.) seem to be remarkably consistent and all were pre-shrunk. The Borrelli's have obviously been from different batches/lines (see post here where somebody spotted oddness in one of my tags ad my followup dissection: http://www.styleforum.net/t/79083/recent-purchases/5100_100#post_5570798 ) and have definitely been constructed differently but were all still pre-shrunk material.

    In followup to my previous post saying all mine appeared to be pre-shrunk, I'll add that I only ever wash mine on cold. I suppose a hot wash might induce some negligible additional shrinkage, but I doubt a full inch.

    I've been looking for a nice antique trunk to use as a coffe table. Mind sharing more photos? Is this for you or is it being sold on your website? Thanks.
