About 2-5% shrinkage on this fabric. If you are usually a 32 waist, get a tagged 32.
We recommend an original cold soak and line dry. Subsequent cleaning should be done with the trousers flipped inside/out (to avoid marbling), gentle cycle, cold water, with minimal environmentally friendly detergent and line dry.
NOTE: Full washing cycle in warm water and machine dry WILL result in more shrinkage (around 5%) and color loss. NOT recommended.
See chart below for raw and post cold soak/line dry approx. measurements:
For these trousers, we have borrowed from both the American West and the Old World, combining European influenced fabrics with 30’s-40’s slacks and “chino” American style trousers.
This “Gun Powder” black wide selvedge herringbone twill cotton/linen blend is woven in Japan to our specifications.
