I think ironing very wet clothes can lead to shrinkage, especially with linen. Mildly damp should be fine for cotton.
I pretty much only purchase linen products and I've never had linen shrink, no matter what I do to it.

I tried shrinking a linen shirt so I could wear it untucked, and it did get a bit shorter after it was in the dryer. Although it went back to original size after a wear and the fibres loosened up lol

I just graduated from undergrad this past May and decided to treat myself to a new suit. Recently took advantage of the MTO deal S&M ran last week and made my first MTO purchase. Can't wait for the suit to arrive and share the end product with you all.

Also, shout out to @Burzan for being so gracious as to help me with fit and style questions!
Cheers, all.

Wondering if anyone tried comparing S&M loafers and the Grant Stone counterparts?
It looks like the main differences I can tell is aesthetic differences, like the penny slot size, top moc stitching being wider on the GS, etc. and then GS also having more SPI and the butyl leather outsole compared to what looks like a standard leather outsole on S&M. Then also obviously the leather difference. GS's are definitely more expensive after conversion to CDN for me, and from the boot I just got definitely worth every penny. No duty with USPS=>CP (asked for this over UPS). I am wanting to try a S&M chukka boot to compare soon, however. Maybe later this FW

I am wondering if the yellow is a new merino wool cardigan colour for FW, or if it is a new cotton sweater line. I just don't see that bright yellow being very versatile in the FW seasons, but may just be me as I've never seen one in the wild that colour
I have a yellow cableknit cardigan styled vest from Ralph Lauren. I think it works well with most jacket and trouser colors for a middle layer. I like it with navy, or browns/greens.

Cool, the most I have really gone past the typical earth tones like grey, brown, green, etc. was a burnt orange. Haven't seen many people showing off yellow sweaters which is why I was kind of thrown off my rails lol

Yeah, it's not a very common color for knitwear.
