    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Washed my M BD royal gingham shirt and it shrunk about half an inch in length and about a solid inch in width. Much more snug now in the chest, the rest is fine, which is bad if I keep working out. Should I size up to L BD to accommodate shrinkage? Anyone else have similar results after washing?

    I was all y things and get minimal shrinkage as well. Every once in awhile someone will report bizarre shrinkage. I shrink test all my stuff. So shrinkage is calculated. Cold is the best for minimal shrinkage that's why I write it on the care tag.
    I am sorry for the shrinkage but it does happen. There is no "magic bullet" for preventing shrinkage or any other problems that may occur. Buttons fall off, zippers break, its the nature of the beast.

    It's all good mauro, more motivation to get slimmer :p May give large BD a shot depending how my weight is by the next set of drops.

    Also, what's the recommended setting for ironing the shirt?

    The place I went before I moved always asked me if I had a "4.0 GPA!". When I would say 3.8 she would shake her head in disgust.

    Cotton is a good setting. The Tencel steams about very easy. I wear a large BD and it works great on me. I think people and sizing is a bizarre thing.
    I might need to do a seminar or something.
