Soaked today for 1hr at 30 degree in bath. I'm leaving it out over night to dry. Definitely some shrinkage. I just put it on damp to stretch it where needed. I think the shoulders have calmed a bit! Chest and waist ok, I'm hoping the 'problem midriff will be ok too.


@Stuart.T I was able to shrink my size Large to a Medium with very hot water and lots of agitation, FYI.

it worked out perfectly. Wore it today and it feels great. needs to wear and soften a bit. It shrunk in all the right places. Sleeves are perfect, but the body length didn't shrink to0 much, which was great for me too! really happy.

I'll try and upload some fir picks if my wife will take them!

Wearing my Iron Heart tux. I’ve had it just shy of a year, still a stiff monster, but I love it. Starting to show some fading here n’ there, tough to get it to show in a pic

And one more. I know some frown on matching double denim, but I love it. Blame the rock n roll.

Thanks dude. I love this combo 21oz 888s and 19oz lefty. Theyve both softened brilliantly but steel feel like im wearing something of substantial quality. I used to wear other brands but since finding IH ive just been addicted!

Currently toying between one of these after a few helpful emails with Alex or waiting for the 526PJ that’s due out in March (526 with pockets + 1 inch extra length)  ::)

What sort of shrinkage have people seen in the length, sleeve and chest? As Giles suggested (0.5” all over)?

I’ve just returned a Medium 526Lod as I wasn’t completely in love with the surface finish (personal taste) but the dimensions on that were spot on if a little snug in the chest. Chatting with Alex he advised going for Medium 526L and soaking it would be the best port of call so I’m looking to see what sort of shrink you guys have gotten?

I'm between a Medium and a Large and I bought a Large 526L and shrunk it down to a Medium, but this was with strong agitation and very hot water. All of the measurements are those of a Medium size from length and chest, etc.  It can be done!

Did you get much in the way of arm twist with that amount of shrink? The only ‘slight’ thing putting me off the loomstate 19oz is the fact it’s going to be able to twist the second it touches water. Not great for chaps with major OCD :D
