You'd think they would come out in the wash, but no. I even tried ironing and I can't seem to get rid of them. It's like they're not sewn straight or something.
The wrinkled hems is a result of when they pressed the seams (using something much more massive than a home iron). On the product end, it's my big complaint I have about AA shirts, as a handful of mine do have this issue.
I'd take the occasional wrinkled hem over the shrinky-stretchy-and-doesn't-stay-as-soft-over-the-long-run-but-still-have-wrinkly-hems Anvils, though. As a followup to what I posted in the random AA shirts during the last shirt.woot-off, here's another length comparison with more recent shirts; pics I've posted previously were of early batches from over 1-1/2 years ago. In order from shortest (top) to longest (bottom), the 6 shirts are:
1. Fox Nouveau/Anvil
2. Schrödinger’s Equation/AA
3. Go Home!/Anvil
4. Free Hugs/NLA
5. Fresh Cake/AA
6. Wrong Droid/NLA
All are size ML. All the @RamyB shirts are regularly washed in hot (doggie slobber builds up) and dryer dried on high. The @Fishbiscuit, @Walmazan, and @SpiritGreen shirts have each been washed 3 times in cold and line dried. I included the NLA shirts to reflect how excessive the Anvil's shrinkage is, along with the aspect that they're the only non-AA shirts I currently have with similar enough wash cycles and care I can use to contrast with.
1. Anvil, dryer-dried, measured 26-7/8" in length = a shrinkage of 3-1/8" from spec.
2. AA, dryer-dried, 29-1/2" = 7/8" shrinkage from spec.
3. Anvil, line-dried, 29-1/2" = 1/2" shrinkage from spec.
4. NLA, dryer-dried, 29-5/8" = 3/8" shrinkage from spec.
5. AA, line-dried, 30-1/4" = 1/8" shrinkage from spec.
6. NLA, line-dried, 30-1/2" = lengthened 1/2" from spec.
2/4/5/6 were purchased new by me, 3 was an unwashed/unworn $3 thrift store find (unwanted random), 1 was a washed/worn thrift store find that was meh at the marked $0.99 but a great deal when it's 75% off.
