Your Jonathan Mezibov shirt is made from high-quality fabric and will last for many years if cared for properly. Follow the guidelines below to keep your shirt looking new.
For cashmere blend, linen, and silk shirts, dry cleaning is recommended. For cotton shirting, please refer to the general guidelines below.
Cotton Shirting General Guidelines:
Always follow your shirt's care instructions
Before washing, undo all the buttons to lessen strain on the stitches
Be sure to remove any collar stays to maintain the integrity of the collar
Turn the shirt inside out to protect the mother-of-pearl buttons and allow the detergent to better access any underarm stains
Wash with similar colors in cold water on gentle cycle
Dry the shirt on a hanger and lightly stretch and smooth the collar, cuffs and front placket with your hands
Your shirt may also be tumble dried on low
If ironing is desired, use a dry iron (no steam) and set the iron's temperature dial to "cotton"
If you send your shirts out to be cleaned, remove any collar stays and ask if "hand laundering" is available. This service will protect your shirt from the harsher treatment and higher heat often associated with commercial laundering. In addition, ask your cleaners for a light press and no starch. Alternatively, your shirt can be dry cleaned.
Since Jonathan Mezibov uses only high-quality cotton, your shirt will shrink slightly during its first few washes. However, there is no need to purchase a larger size to allow for fabric shrinkage. We have already taken shrinkage into consideration in the design of our shirts. For this reason, the actual collar measurement on a new Jonathan Mezibov shirt may be up to 1/2" larger and the sleeves up to 3/4" longer than the sizes stated in the size charts. As a result, you can feel confident ordering your normal shirt size.
