“Great, but I was surprised it needed to be cold washed”

The phrase "They don't make 'em like they used to" gets thrown around with clothing quite a bit. Plaid shirts of old were often woven super thick and heavy, ready to stand up to even the most demanding work. We love the vintage plaid with that super hearty weave, so we worked with a small Japanese mill that specializes in these types of fabrics to develop this black watch plaid with just that in mind. The subdued blue, black, and green color tones are a timeless combination. It's woven using a very special 10/1 x 10/1 construction, as you need this thick, textured yarn to get the right look and feel. Definitely design the shirt with soft details all around--we like the Soft Franklin Spread collar, soft placket, and soft one-button cuff. Keep in mind this fabric has a larger than usual shrinkage allowance, so will arrive slightly larger than most shirts straight out of the box. After laundering it will shrink down to its expected size.
