Now that I have both this and the work shirt. I think I prefer the western. I am going to mothball the work shirt and save it for in a few years after this one is beat. A shirt so nice I am glad to own 2. I was also thankful I was able to shrink the cuffs on this a little. I soaked them in boiling water and the threw the shirt in the dryer on high heat damp cuffs only. The cuffs are super-wide on a 4xl.

Bad quality pics for sure.

Has anyone washed this and had any issues? This has happened to mine...1 x 20 degree wash  30 min cycle, 800 spin...it seem the weave is so loose that the material sort of opens up. My machine is perfectly fine too, no other issues. @Alex and @Giles any other reported issues? I don't want to snip the loose threads with scissors for fear of making it worse, but I also can't pull the threads through the back...

Not something that I have seen before.  You can pull the threads to the back side easily. take a needle and cotton, from the back of the fabric take the needle through the same hole as the rogue yarn, leaving a tag end on the reverse, put the need back through the same hole, leaving a loop of cotton, pull both ends of the cotton through until you have a little loop.  Put the rogue yarn into the loop and continue pulling.  Voila. it's done.

My description is pretty crap, so I made a pulled yarn and fixed it.  Here it is on vid...

Washed my work shirt version twice already. No issues.

@Giles I gave it a go...blimey I need to get my eyes tested! Took a few goes but here are the results

Reverse...I tied off the loose thread and cut the excess off

The other snag results aren't quite as good as the thread is a loop

Reverse...I couldn't tie off or cut this one

This material is such a loose weave, I think it will always be prone to snagging.i didn't think threads would loosen in a light wash though. I'm sure there are always anomalies, you just there will be less on a £250 shirt I thought a quick wash might have closed the weave, but no luck.

Well done Stu, not trying to dodge the issue, but embrace the Wabi Sabi

Went with a large initially, but just a bit to short. Got my exchange for a an XL in the mail today, very pleased!

Apologies for the random photo order, not my intention but changing it via the phone interface is proving tedious.
