If you read my answer to you today on the previous page, everything is there, including the wash mashine modeHow would you recommend washing this jacket?
And doesn't the knit, the cuffs and waistband loosen out?
Hi -- I just got my B-15A in the mail and am having the same issue. It smells like mold to me. Did you have any luck with the wash?Having an issue with my Bronson B-15A... the smell.
It has a very strong musky, chemical, moth-ball type thing going on - this is the lining, shell and collar is fine.
My partner has threatened all sort of nasty things lol, she's right though, I had it lay over the sofa for a day and the sofa now smells.
Anyone else had this?
This is pretty weird. Have you used a dryer?Ok So I washed the B-15A in cold water. Came out the other side looking great, knits still very tight, but it did shrink enough in the body to make it just a bit too snug. I went with a 42 and out of the box, it felt like it fit big for a 42 (which is what I was looking for) now I wish I had gotten a 44. If anyone is looking for a B15A only worn once and laundered, you can drop a line.
I did not use the dryer. I washed it on "cold" and let it hang dry as per this thread and the care instructions on the jacket. I wish I took measurements beforehand, but you can really see the shrinkage in the overall body length which you can notice in the zipper puckering a bit and along the inside where the lining meets the waistband.This is pretty weird. Have you used a dryer?
I washed my Bronson and its size hasn't changed. I washed it on a 30C mode and a spin of 400, after which it dried on a hanger in a day and remained the same size and not become smaller. Thomas washed his own at an even higher temperature and it hasn't changed either.
Maybe Bronson changed the composition of the fabric ... my jacket was bought 2 years ago.
