Shirt looks great @Filthy!  I've always been a big fan of Indigofera, unfortunately it's been one of the rare brands that doesn't quite fit me (too big).

Yeah I was pleasantly surprised. Truth be told the shoulders were a little unruly... it looked like I was wearing shoulder pads. But it seems I got about a half an inch of shrink. So this should pull the shoulders in slightly. I was gonna throw it in the dryer. But there's a ton of indigo bleed and I know this will get streaky because the indigo is so dark.

This was the water in the pot during the soak.

I very much like Indigofera. The Copeland in gunpowder black is a favorite of mines.

I hot machine washed my shirt (on gentle and no spin) and put it in the dryer. I got a an inch of shrink pit to pit and lots of great puckering and roping. 😍

Here is a sneak peek of the shirt I was talking about in the Random Question thread. Many thanks to Fredrik from Indigofera  for trying to help me find one. It only took 4 tries to finally cop one...

That's rad. Though I generally prefer how IH does it, I've mentioned that IH should try a flannel with the quarter-turned placket, it's a great vintage look, especially when the orientation matches a turned yoke and pockets as most IH Westerns have.
Think it, be it.

I just liked it because of the colors. It's supposed to match the color scheme from a 70s Datsun advertisement. You wouldn't believe how much trouble I went to find one.

@Filthy what size did you get? We wear the same size in Iron Heart shirts I think...

@Palmer 2xl. But good luck finding one. Pretty sure I got the very last one on Earth.

@Palmer I can guarantee that they do not because the one email is from them. Sorry.

Oh I must have missed that. Probably a good thing for me since it will be 90-100 degrees here in the day for the next few months. That isn't stopping me from considering that size 38 888HXSib in the buy sell trade area of the forum.  :D Enjoy that beautiful shirt!

@Palmer despite being an XL I can confirm that the PTP on an XL is the exact same size as a 3xl in IH . They are 62 cm pit to pit and 61 cm at the waist... but the shirt will shrink 1 cm wish a cold wash they said
