    General Cleaning Information For Shirts

    All of the shirts we sell can either be laundered at home or commercially dry cleaned. One very important rule to note is that the shirts we sell MUST BE laundered/dry cleaned BEFORE they are worn. The reason for this is all our shirts are not pre-washed, so the fibers have not tightened and the shirts will shrink some after cleaning. Natural fibers such as Cotton or Linen will shrink more than Cotton/Poly mix shirts. If you wear your shirts before you launder/clean them, some of your stains may become imbedded in the fabric fibers and will not come out. Each of the different fabrics that we use in our shirts has a different set of cleaning/laundering instructions. To know what type of fabric was used on your shirts, refer to your invoice generated at the time you ordered or our web site; do not refer to the Commercial Invoice inserted in the package; that is for customs' purposes only.

    If you are going to be Dry Cleaning your shirts make sure that you use a reputable and professional Dry Cleaner that understands the differences in dry cleaning different fabrics. If you are going to be laundering your shirts at home, the usual laundry rules apply, we will re-cap them below:

    Specific Cleaning Information For Specific Shirt Fabrics

    Below you will find some fabric specific cleaning instructions for your shirts, use these instructions in conjunction with the fabric definitions on our web site to properly care for your shirts.

    Cotton Dress Shirts

    Cotton creases on washing and wrinkles when worn, it requires some ironing. Cotton is a natural fiber that "breathes" which makes it cooler to wear than a cotton/poly mix, but makes it more susceptible to wrinkling. Many colored cottons fabrics are non-colorfast so wash them separately when new. Cotton is weakened and may be destroyed by contact with acids - even mild ones like fruit juice - if left for long periods. Wash out any staining immediately.

    Linen Shirts

    In general, linen fabrics do not soil easily. Our linens can be safely washed using a normal wash cycle, but will definitely need ironing. Linen shirts will need to be washed a couple of times to "soften" up the fabric some. Our Linen shirts will shrink depending on how much you wash and dry them, to avoid excess shrinkage try dry cleaning. Dry cleaning them always will not get that initial softening effect you need, so they should be washed a couple of times at first if you plan to dry clean them always.

    Cotton/Polyester Shirts

    Items made from a Cotton/Polyester mix are considered "wrinkle resistant". The lower the Cotton content in the shirt (e.g. 60/40 versus 80/20) the less the shirts will wrinkle. You can wash and wear Cotton/Polyester shirts with minimal or no ironing. You can dry clean these shirts but it is not really needed.

    Silk Shirts

    All of Silk shirts are made from 100% Hand-Woven Thai Silk. You should always treat your Silk shirts as a "delicate" item. Never use any kind of bleach on your Silk shirts. Dry-cleaning is preferable, but some garments can be gently washed in a neutral detergent, such as the special wool washes. The washing and rinsing temperature should always be warm, never hot. Spot cleaning tends to leave rings and should be avoided. After washing, hang briefly to remove excess water and press or roll between towels. Avoid steam pressing or sprinkling with water because it may cause water marks. Iron shirts on the inside - it stops the fabric getting a glossy look if the iron is a hot.
