How much should I expect shrink wise?

Everything tells me I'm an XL, but I might be a Large, if it doesn't shrink at all.

Sorry for this lengthy post, just trying to do my homework before making a mistake. :)

If you blast hot water in a tub or bucket as hot as the tap will go and give it a soak straight from the bag, you will get shrinkage. I usually wear XXL in most IH tops and my Lefty is a XXXL but fits like an XXL after I hot soaked the crap outta mine for over an hour.

edit: also you might want a little extra room with this jacket anyway, the fabric is akin to tree bark as it is super stiff and thicc.

Interesting, thank you. Did the fabric lose noticable/significant amount of indigo after that first hot water soak?

From my experiences no.
It’s not a fast fader and you have to work hard for . But they definitely fade amazing 🤩

As a general rule any decent indigo rope-dyed fabric will not lose any significant colour with an initial wash.  Indigo is oxidised onto the surface of the cotton and is only removed by abrasion (wear).  Any indigo you do lose will be loose unoxidised indigo and would rub off very quickly with wear anyway.

And as @Kasi suggests, drop the crew an email at shop@ironheart.co.uk, you won't find better-qualified people to answer questions like this, it's their job.

Perfect. Thank you, I'll do just that.

Whoops, there was a significant typo in this para. Corrected here.
