Well some more feedback came in. Since I wasn’t tagged I stopped looking after the second day lol.
I know all kinds of peeps. From hardcore to softies. Working in a denim shop you get all kinds.
Of course I wash my jeans and shirts and have never worried about it but I would also point out that an enlisted man on a carrier didn’t have to buy his jacket. I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t going to be any drastic shrinkage or anything else unexpected. Turning my jeans inside out and not using bleach is just common sense and a little wear and tear is what we’re going for anyway isn’t it?
Keep it coming fellas...

Yeah I was thinking about spinning at 200 which is the lowest setting. Thanks for the input @BloodnThunder

Crazy guy checking in...

I machine washed and dried an N-1 jacket a couple of years back... There was some slight shrinkage, but alas I didn't take measurements. I assume that could be avoided if washing on cold and line drying though.

I've not had any issues with the alpaca shedding after the wash/dry, aside from the typical amount it sheds anyway even when new.

Hey Guys, good to hear back from you!
Thanks for the input. Yeah I think that is my main concern, that the layers separate. I once washed a Daun jacket and some of the feathers got redistributed in the confines of the jacket. So now there are some places where there’s no insulation and in other places too much. My vest doesn’t really “need” to be washed. I just kind of want to see how it will look, fade/patina afterwards.
I haven’t made up my mind yet but I’m 70% at this point that I’ll do it. Will send pics after to show the outcome.
Until then,  8)

Hi everyone,
I know I don’t visit the forum often but I hope it’s ok still to pop in occasionally to see what’s up or ask the random question; which I’m about to do.
I have a IHV-22 in Navy from around W2016 which has been worn quite often (more than quite).

I’m thinking about giving it a wash after this winter ends and was wondering if anybody has any tips, experience or any other advice to share or washing deck jackets (vests).

P. S.
Shout out to The guys in service! Thanks for the help with my recent purchase. I’m very pleased  ;)

It's all good...

Most of the world has been frozen over, so I don't think anyone would have gotten much wear out of it anyway.

@Jim ya ready?
Ready brother! @UnTucked

Don’t know if a Denim Tux could be any more perfect than that. Really well done.

@Jett129 why thank you. I think if anything can devide the denim community down the middle it's the matching tux. I've grown up loving the aesthetics of the 1950s biker/rocker style that carried through to the US punk movement. Definitely not for everyone, and my personal styling isn't that of someone such as @Jim that could carry this off way better,. You can really change it up too by mixing footwear (chucks or engineer boots) and undergarments (tshirt or flannel) I'm very happy with it.
You’re Too Kind my friend! Thank you and I’d say it suits you Very well! @Stuart.T

Funnily enough it’s the whole reason I bought the 202. I love this Old dirty Patina that natural Denim, or in this case Chambray gets after some wear. The bleeding from my denims is really starting to show. I like ke the Indigo overdye you did and it looks great indeed. But , hey. Different strokes and all that.
