You're gonna love it! The purple is so vibrant and of course the ombré always is an excellent choice in pattern.

Yeah, one of my favorites as well. And the purple is so different from the buffalo check that it's valid to own both  8)
I don't care what people say.. The Max Power way is the right way...

Despite my attempt at trying to save money I broke down and picked this up at SE. I ended up going with an xl because they were sold out of large, so the plan is to hot wash the shit out of this thing to see if I can get some shrink out of it. The only other time I've sized up to xl was with the GRN 206, but those sewed up on the smaller side. Also, I wasn't really big on purple when these came out because I live in Minnesota and that color is associated with the Vikings. But, I don't have this color in my wardrobe and figured i'd give it a try.

For those of you with experience, when you guys hot wash UHF's do you also throw it in the dryer for maximum shrinkage or do you hang dry after the hot wash? I won't know just how big this shirt will be on me until I get it next week. The plan is to hot wash with some woolite dark, but i'm concerned there will be color fading if I chuck it in the dryer. Should I skip the dryer and just go with a hang dry? I'd mostly want to get some shrink out of the sleeves as the xl measurements are really long.

@gaseousclay take it slowly, one step at a time. You don't want to ruin your shirt. A 60C/800rpm wash and air dry will get you shrinkage. Do that first, see if it's enough. If it isn't, increase the heat and spin incrementally until it fits.

A run through the tumble dryer will certainly give you a lot of shrinkage, but that exposure to dry heat over time isn't great for the fabric of the shirt, I'd avoid it .

Fading is going to happen. Agitation and heat are needed for shrinkage, they are also what cause fabrics to fade. Sorry.

Thanks. I’ll hot wash and hang dry first and see if that works. Guess I’ll wait till I get it first to see just how big it is. It was an impulse purchase so kinda paranoid it’ll fit like a tent on me. The length looks fine — it’s the sleeves and chest I’m worried about.

If it is big on you,then in the Winter you can layer a thermal Henley underneath,which looks really cool with that shirt.

You'll get more shrinkage in the arms and body (length) than in the chest, shoulders and waist. This is a function of proportions.

It's a great shirt and @Jett129 has a very good point: Worst case, layer the bugger.

Good points. If it doesn’t shrink much I could wear it as a shacket. Or sell it

An odd observation, when I viewed this shirt on my desktop it was showing 0 stock in size large. But on my cell it’s showing they have large in stock. Does this show up for you guys? Wondering if it’s a cache thing with my cell

Got my purple ombre today and I'm pleased to say that the xl actually fits me. My other UHF's are a size large and those are fitted. The xl gives me a little chest room and I don't think the sleeve length is that bad. I'm sure they'll bunch up over time and i'll lose a half inch. I'm now starting to wonder if I should start going xl on all UHF's. All of my large UHF's measure approximately 22" p2p. This xl is a hair under 23" but my sweet spot would be 22.5".
