    shirt washed, while soaking wet it looks like it shrunk.. maybe 1/4th an inch? if that. we'll see when it's dry.

    The shirts are allowed to shrink up to 1% to 2.5% in total body, it's inside industry standard. I am driving to the factory next week. They( factory) are saying nothing has been changed and are sticking to the word. I will drive from D.C. to outside of Columbus OH and get the answers.
    The BD shirt is slim as fuck so if shrinking does occur it's going to effect the fit simply because there is no room for forgiveness.
    I have put the other two oxfords on hold til more shrink test are done and so that I can re-adjust the patterns. The rest of the new shirts are good to go. The gray shirt is amazing and if you are worried about shrinkage you won't have to with the gray shirt.


    Best,

    As long as the AD shirts aren't delayed, sounds great!

    It shouldn't. However if I have to make some items for Area Magazine ( Japan) then we could have a hiccup.

    k so i got my light blue back from the tailor and it turned out great. i had him let out exactly half of the darted fabric and now it fits like my other wvg bd shirts. so for those of you guys who experienced shrinking in the waist like me, this is definitely a great option. it's an easy job for a skilled tailor.

    So it's either rogue darts or people aren't washing them correctly.

    rouge darts, lol. That made me laugh. Regardless of the issues I am going to the factory. Care instructions are on the label in my words.
    New shirt releases today. Very special shirt , very expensive fabric. I took a hit on this one so that I could offer something special and keep it under 200.00
    I will be giving away some tee's with purchases*ahem* tote holders ,starting this week.
    Check out the blog and read about the shirts.
    I will have trousers and knickers coming out I will take pics of the fabric. The "deer slayer" jacket will be ready hopefully late october. If it can't be ready by then I will offer it next season. I need to sell at least 15 of them. They should retail around 450.00 . Pics will be taken soon.Making a pre-production sample now.

    How many people would wear knickers, seriously?

    Best,
    Mauro

    yes the "new" collars, lengths, and specs should all be standard now on the small batch shirts being released
