A customer emailed in a question asking about the expected shrinkage in our Retro Fit undershirts, and which of them shrinks less.

I'm wondering which of the Retro Fit tees shrinks less - the Tri-Blend or the 50-50 blend?

Which Retro Fit Shrinks Less?

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for getting back to us!

When we produce all of our garments, we pre-calculate how much shrinkage will occur based on each "lot" of fabric, and add that amount into the garment production.

In short, you never have to worry about too much shrinkage, because the post laundering/drying will always be what our intended sizing is planned for.

With our Retro Fit undershirts, they are not pre-laundered, so they will fit larger out of the package. We allow the washing/drying of (1) item so you can determine how the item will fit after it is washed down to its intended size

We have some additional information about this on our FAQ (seach for "shrink").

Between Retro 50 and Retro Tri-Blend, each may shrink differently, but they both should be nearly identical in size after laundering/drying 1-2 times.

Please do let us know if you have any other questions or if we can be of any further assistance.
