Dude im totally with you but its my first week at a new office and I dont want to take a chance on first impressions. I'm feeling out the dress code there. Jeans and a button down should be fine but I just cant risk it on day one. Its at the corporate office of a major luxury retail chain and they will accept fashion im sure, but I dont want to appear to be disrespectful and wear a shirt they might not "understand" until I can feel out what people wear there.

So most likey im only gonna iron it once until I can settle in and be myself. I love the color so much and I got a nice pair of Epaulet navy duck canvas pants to go with it. Dont worry I plan to be gentle!

What would be difficult to 'understand' about a chambray? If it looks crinkled and you dont want to iron it but also not wear it to work... wear something else?

I will iron it....i just wanted to make sure it wouldn't forever ruin the shirt. I didn't see any instructions on the tag so I asked. Crisis averted!

I ended up giving my size 38 Lot. 64 Californians a cold soak, followed by five or so minutes of agitation in the washer. Prior to hanging them up to dry, I measured the waist -- It shrunk down from 40.5" to roughly 37". I needed them to shrink quite a bit...hopefully they did. In any event, I'll be soaking them tomorrow once they've dried completely. 

*Edit

Pre-soak (BIG-style): Waist -- 40.5", Rise -- 14", Upper Thigh -- 14.25", Hem -- 9.5", Inseam -- 36.5"
Post-soak..................: Waist -- 37.0", Rise -- 13", Upper Thigh -- 13.50", Hem -- 9.1", Inseam -- TBM

from what I've seen I believe its ok to have a wrinkle or two on MFSC shirts. Even to work.

I LOVE this jacket, but how can I purchase a wear-everyday-everywhere-neverwash jacket that I'd be afraid to let touch light car upholstery or my girlfriend's Mom's couches? Is there hope for the indigo settling? I've never owned something dyed so heavily... any of you experts have advice to allay my concerns?
 
Not an expert but I have an indigo vat that I believe to be similar to the one at MF. Here's some advice from my personal experience:
 
If the coat was vat dyed, that means it has already been wet several times and, as long as you don't put it in the dryer or boil it, additional shrinkage should be negligable.
 
Whenever I do vat dyeing, I always end up with A LOT of crocking and have to wash the clothes before the crocking goes away. The indigo that's coming off on you right now isn't bonded to the fibers so it'll come off very easily. The good thing about this is that unbonded indigo comes off easily. If you want to wear the jacket but don't want to turn your world blue, buy it and soak it in the tub with a little bit of hand agitation. Temperature shouldn't matter as long as it's not hot. Agitate the jacket, let it dry. If it still crocks, repeat.
 
Also keep in mind that the wool from these is from old military blankets -- Not exactly the most delicate wool. I honestly doubt you could do much damage to it if you tried.
 
Good luck, let me know how it goes (with pics!)
 
I assume that the jackets were not washed after the final dip

I might be wrong, but I think only the first release, the white one is made of old blankets. The indigo ones are of 'new' melton wool. Only the sample that Christophe did was the white one that he dyed.
