Jacket shrinkage

Post  Wooster on Mon Mar 14 2016, 15:06

Just a heads up, the Hein Gericke Tricky III jackets are prone to shrinkage over a number of years.
After firing up old faithful today, I nipped back in to get kitted out and found that my jacket was even tighter than it was last year. I barely managed to squeeze into it.

No wonder they went bust in the UK. Very Happy

All my clothes seem to have that problem. Each year they are tighter than the last

I'm sure it has to be that. My leather trousers no longer fitted this year, never had that problem before - OK, so my jacket stopped fitting because I got fat a few years ago and had to get a larger one, but the trousers had been fine, must have been when they got wet, didn't realise that was the cause, probably the reason my jacket shrunk too Wink
