Caring For Your Shirt
Shrinkage is something that occurs naturally in the wash, and your shirt is constructed with this in mind. As a rule of thumb, shirts are made with a shrinkage allowance of 3/4 of an inch of sleeve and 1/4 of an inch on the collar. Therefore, expect your shirt to shrink to the correct size once washed. We suggest washing your shirt at 40 degrees as it is the perfect temperature to get a clean shirt without excess shrinkage.
