    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.

    until then (and even after), i guarantee this thread will spark at least 3 sizing questions per day

    Duffs- I will send you a size chart for the shirts. Why don't you pm or post your sizes. This way the group can help you just in case I am not by my computer. I am going to work and pa til Wednesday.

    Best,
    Mauro

    good idea. i will take some measurements of shirts i feel fit well after work today.

    generally a pretty average build though...almost always wear a medium, although sometimes i will size down to small. 5'11", 165 lbs, 39" chest, 32" waist. not super skinny so i think i will be going with the After Dinner cuts.

    think you could try a large BD as well. Else go with M AD

    I'm prety similar to those measurements and I get the large BD but I prefer a slimmer fitting shirt.
