Hey guys, just a small cautionary tale about this fabric: be careful when washing.
Washed this for the first time over the weekend with some other indigo garments and found a small tear forming on the back near the right arm hole.
Very well could just be my shitty washing machine, but I washed it on delicate so I didn’t expect any issues.
So just be careful!

Are those actually broken yarns?

At first I thought it was just a spot but the yarns are indeed tearing a little.
The first photo is the outside of the shirt and the second is from the inside.
I can try to take better photos later today.

First photo is the outside, second is the inside.

Other than that the shirt is coming along nicely.
Added the measuring tape for color balance.

I hand washed mine before I saw this post. I was more worried about white marks and streaking.  This shirt is going to look amazing with time, It seems to fade as fast as loom breakers do!
madmonday's retired....I'm just tired.

@Giles I had the same issue with my shirt as well. I think mine are a bit small. Mine was done on delicate as well and hung out to dry. I think I have two of those, both on the back side of the shirt - kidney area.
Ohhhhhh that constitutional stitching!

@Broark @joephoto

Both, I think from what I can see, this is just an irregularity in the weave, I do not think it is of major concern.  But if you are worried that it is a weakness/something you do not like, PM me.

Thanks. I’m not concerned. I wouldn’t have known of others having the same occurrence had I not looked at the forum page. It’s a lovely shirt and as it’s a work shirt I’m LIVIN in it! When it goes through the wash again I’ll let you know how it gets on. Joe

No worries G, I'm not very concerned either.
I'll report back once I wash mine again as well to see if anything else develops.

Nice update @Broark.  That shirt looks like it will age beautifully.

Bought in July, but first real wear today as the weather finally broke below 90F in Florida...
