You’re probably right but I can’t guarantee it. I can set temps and spin as I want on mine. Be warned that US machines are harder on clothes than European ones, and please, please, soak the shirt well in the bath or shower first.

Ok @neph93 and @rocket I've just put mine in for 90 degree wash 600 spin 1 1/2 hours. I've got everything crossed for a good result  :-[

@neph93 followed your instructions to the letter. Letting it dry over night. Looks to have good results too ;D resisted the urge to tumble dry!

Good man. If you can’t see abrasion/heavy creasing now then you should be good. Tumble drying will maximise shrinkage but will accelerate wear, affect the cotton and you risk abrasion lines again. Leave it and see how you feel.

One more word to the wise, wabash needs to be ridden hard to reveal it’s true glory.

Nice shirt @Stuart.T and looks great on you.

I bought one from a Winchy (he used to work at IHUK) and I love it. Had it on yesterday on the bike.

@neph93  and @rocket the wash to shrink advice worked perfectly. A little bit of white lining on the inside of the shirt and the whitedotting has a little more blue hue than it did but nothing to lose sleep over, and it will end up that way anyway.

Hem curl on thicker shirts make me wonder why though. My IH 33 does it too. Any established reason for it? The result of shrinkage? Hem Weight and construction? Who cares, it's just an awesome shirt?

It's a characteristic of twill weave fabrics, so nothing to be done about it.  Ironing will reduce it some.

Almost time to buy a new one...

EDIT: These photo's were taken in a hurry and now they are on screen I can see the focusing is all over the place. Apologies, but you get the general idea..

Check what has happened with the hem curl on mine in the above pics. It seems shady after the first wash but the results it gives with wear are trés cool.

I’m not sure whether I should say you’re welcome or I’m sorry... I know you’ll enjoy it though.
