Guys, can I expect some shrinkage on this one? Right now it is a bit loose around the chest (P2P) area. Would like it a bit snug! So if I wash it at 40° C, can I expect some shrinkage?

Product page says no. Once washed already so little or no shrinkage.

40C wouldn’t do much anyway as the “one wash” would have been hotter than that. You may get shrinkage at 60C, and would almost certainly get shrinkage if you subjected it to a 90C wash. There is a trade off there however as 90C temps may cause some undesirable effects as well as the looked for shrinkage.

If I can get any shrinkage, that would be a blessing for me!

Another question, will this material soften after use / wash? It is tougher than the other 9 oZ that I got from IH recently!

@jothishan

Not sure if you already saw my post from earlier in the thread, but in case you didn't, here are my shrinkage results for a medium I bought in January.

I didn’t measure it in between the two washes, but based on the fit, my guess is the first wash gave it about 75% of the difference, and the second wash just snugged it up a bit more.

Can’t say the temp I used; it was my washer’s highest setting.

Shoulder: 17.5 => 17.3
Length:  30 => 29.3
Chest:  21.8 => 21.5
Waist:  20.5 => 20.25
Opening:  21 => 20.75
Sleeve:  26 => 25.3

My experience is it starts off very stiff after the hang dry (maybe stiffest of all my IH shirts), but quickly becomes very soft.
