Haha, I think you did it right. I remember reading that the LL linen shirting would shrink significantly and I’ve had a few linen shirts from G. Inglese shrink as well. I usually only wash the Irish linens to soften them up for pants. My linens from solbiati are soft from the get go.Damn it, Lordsuperb, did I screw this up?
The cottons and linens get washed once and then put in the dryer. Note that only those linens and cottons that will be made into casual shirts get put in the dryer as those are the only pieces that may shrink with washing. Anything that will be made into a suit/jacket/coat will not be put in the dryer. The Nantucket Red got a two-wash cycle (back to back) treatment because of its propensity to fade (especially quickly early).
