How much does the Heracles chambray shrink up if given the full treatment (dryer, etc.)? By the measurements, I've always figured I'd be a medium, but a large has popped up for sale and I'm trying to convince myself it might work

and: Anyone get their slub yarn undershirts in yet?

I have the Heracles and I gave it that treatment without very much shrinkage. It's rather long, especially in the sleeves, so I don't know about sizing up. I'd be vary of it mostly because of the sleeve length.

^ Thanks, good info. Around how tall are you? More often than not, I end up having to size up because of sleeve length, so this may end up being more feature than bug for me

^ I see, in that case I think you'll be alright. I'm 5'10 and 180lbs - semi-wide shoulders and a short torso and wide-ish hips (which means the bottom button, which is quite low on the Heracles, is never buttoned because the shirt is tapered towards the hem quite a bit).

Just received both of my Atlas shirts, these are really top notch.
The salt and pepper chambray feels heavy duty. I'm happy with the fit, although I might give them a warm wash to see if I can get a tiny bit of shrinkage.
Will get some fit pics when I get around to it. Thanks @Iron Horse, looking forward to more releases in the future.

The shirts look great. No gusset on the cuffs?

@mpukas that’s correct, it’s a period correct detail of some workshirts of the 30s/40s if I recall correctly. I was a little hesitant because I don’t own any shirts like that but it doesn’t looks weird at all. Bryan has some great articles about the history of the workshirt on his blog.

Love the green one; might actually get it. The torso is a tad big but green S&P chambray is hard to come by...

@tigerstrom here’s the measurements for my XXL after two washes and one trip through the dryer. 

Chest: 24 in. 

Shoulders: 20 in  

Length: 30 in. 

Sleeves: 26 in. 

Definitely shrank some in the chest and midsection, I’m not sure how it measured prewash. For instance my sleeves are a bit longer than the size chat. But they shrank up pretty much perfectly!

That sleeve measurement is really hopeful…I skipped out on this one specifically 'cause I was worried the sleeves would come up short

Anyone else have input on how consistent these are w.r.t. the size charts?

My Atlas shirt in sage just arrived and a incredible nice shirt! I sized up two sizes from my Heracles because it's a bit small and I like the fit. If a can get a tiny bit more shrinkage from a wash it will be exactly as I want it.

Atlas shirt! Love the fabric and the fit. I could possibly just have sized up one size from my Heracles shirt but I was afraid that the waist would be to slim.
