I haven't washed mine yet, but I plan on warm washing and low tumble drying. I'd like a little shrinkage, but not much.
Thanks. Saw another one of your posts about sleeve length. It's just right for me too so was curious if they'll shrink

Just a quick PSA about the tencel shirts
I seem to have killed the magic of mine by machine washing it. It lost a lot of its lustre and smoothness and now wrinkles much more easily and doesn't drape like it did before. It pretty much looks and behaves like cotton now. I put it through a delicate cycle but I did throw some oxiclean in, which might have been a bad move.

I would be judicious about how you choose to wash them

I think mine shrunk a tiny bit. I've handwashed it twice with Woolite and hang dryed. Still has it's sheen but it seems like it's a tad smaller. Still fits so I'm not mad but I thought it strange because I didn't think tencel would shrink.

FWIW I washed my tencel garbardine on delicate in a mesh garment bag and it came out just fine. It feels a little denser but has the same drape and size as before.

That's a strong collection. That herringbone overcoat is amazing.

Where does one get that coat? Will it be available on the Wythe website?
