Unless you need the shirt tomorrow AM, just wait until it dries completely. My shirts only take 5 hours or so to dry completely right out of the wash. I am guessing using a hot iron on a damp shirt could cause shrinkage, unsure. Especially on a custom shirt, I would just wait.
It’s better to iron shirts while damp actually. Not wet but having some water in the fabric.

I’ve always used steam for ironing from the iron. Steam takes out wrinkles. Never had an issue on my dry shirts

Anyone else find E.Thomas fabrics to drape the best on their body?

Not only do they look and feel amazing, but compared to other jackets, I don't even see weird ripples across my back due to my dropped shoulder or anywhere else.

The blend of fabrics really do seem like the best of all worlds for comfort, drape, wrinkle resistance, and breathability.

I think I've caught an expensive bug.

Just received the shepherd's check sportcoat. Observations... Quality: A-1. Fit: Amazing out the box, again confirming 38L contemporary is where it's at for me. Color: Surprised in a good way to see that's it's truly a gray and blue mix. Pics on the site seemed to indicate it would be more like a blue and white. I can see this pairing with the stone coverts in a very positive way. It is at home indeed with chunky knit ties and suede chukkas. Weight/hand: Sheesh! This jawn is kinda heavyweight. Wears almost like a blanket. Kind of has a flannel feel/hand. Will definitely keep me warm and we'll see how that works out with LA weather. Going forward will probably pay more attention to GSM, staying under 300 GSM for more year-round wear.

On another note, is it just me or is there something pretty alluring about SM's lapel treatment on FW-19 sportcoats? I can't quite put my finger on it, but it just looks really good. I'm talking non-Neo, but Neo is pretty dope as well. I'm aware they advertise that's it's 3.5 inches, but that doesn't seem to capture the totality of the lapel appeal. All this to say: 1. Props to SM, keep doing what y'all are doing; and/or 2. I likely have too much time on my hands.
I bought this yesterday. It shipped today. Im super excited for it

Can't vouch for e.thomas fabric offered by SM, but my e.thomas Sportcoats from suitsupply and my new cotton trouser have a very nice drape indeed. Love their fabrics!

No they fit me the worst. Always seem to run smaller than the others.

I have that rust check E. Thomas jacket that’s now sold out. Wool-silk-linen. And yes—it drapes better than anything else I own.

Drago brown and green gun check. I still haven’t seen anyone else with this fabric and I still have to get the sleeves shortened 1/2” as they came in at the very end of the acceptable range for the MTO. Sort of my own fault I guess since I waffled back and forth on the sleeve length. I should have gone with my original gut feeling and got them slightly shorter than what is I consider perfect.

Don’t mind the non-ironed pants. I just picked them off the floor for the pics.
