Nooo! Don't unless you absolutely have to.
Because they'll most likely shrink 1-2 inches in each and every direction
Lerche said they shrunk 1/2 inch at most
AHHH! I probably won't wash em' until a long time anyway. I'll take David's advice and not wash them until I really need to.
A couple weeks ago the stitching on my hauberk ripped somehow. It sucks but almost unnoticeable.
I kinda have the same thing, but it's the pocket that ripped. I think its because I kept shoving my wallet in my pocket all the time.
Also my DS M-65 buttons are came off, well the chest pocket buttons did.
I didn't really yank em off, but eh, I think I can live without them.
