Wow strong accusations many are satisfied, what do you mean they slide into your account and manipulate information?

So what was your issue with Collaro? Why not post in the Collaro thread and get it rectified? I am curious as I would like to order from them.

Has anyone else had issues with their measurement system? I've ordered a few pieces using measurements I've used with Hemrajani and have had *major* shrinkage (George Constanza not involved in anyway). Especially a pair of cotton chinos, after laundering, I lost almost 2 inches in inseam. Do they not add allowances for shrinking to their patterns? Is this a normal thing for MTM cotton trousers and I just need to add the allowances myself next time?

Idk if Yeossal does this, but with other MTO companies, I ask if the fabric can be pre washed and dried prior to cutting to minimize shrinking

It's a little unusual for that much of shrinkage. Could you please PM me your order number so that I can give a check and rectify if needed? Thanks.

Hello, will you be running another promotion on GMTO? I ordered two pairs a few years ago when you did the boot promotion, but your shaft measurement was off. Now my shafts are overlapping and dress boots aren't meant to be worn with hiking sock.

Tragic: one of my one piece collar polos made it in the dryer by acccident and shrank from a form fitting L to a very tight S

Before this tragic event, when you let it air dry it flat, did you notice any shrinkage compared to first-wear? Is it recommended that we add 1-2% to each dimension when ordering the one-piece polos to account for shrinkage?
