I bought 3 shirts quite identical to this last summer, in different colours! I had to have them shortened and then I wore each of them once! After washing I found that they all had shrunk and had become unwearable! Normally, I would have returned them but because they were shortened I didn't!! I'm am now a bit frightened of Reitmans' products, but if it happens again, I will definitely return the item! That was an expensive lesson!
