Shrinkage

We prewash each shirt length individually, just before cutting it for your shirt. Some fabrics are washed more than once if they have a tendency to shrink further.
The shirt you will receive would be pre-shrunk and will not shrink further significantly. You are thus not required to adjust for shrinkage.
