An email to Topman UK also reveals that there will be some shrinkage since it wasn’t washed as I guessed earlier. A 30 waist actually measure 33.5 which meant washing the pair of selvage might redered it unwearable as I am unsure how much it would shrink. So dry cleaning it will be, for the time being.
Little did I know there’s another source for selvage here in KL. These are basic and not to be compared with Japanese variant. If compared to Uniqlo, these are a little more stylish. Though they are in the lower price point I must admit the design (subjective), quality, detailing are pretty outstanding. For £45, its a bargain.
