Ventile anorak from Wintergreen
« on: October 06, 2017, 11:07:33 PM »
I've had one of their anoraks for some time (love it, even if it's not cotton/ canvas) and poking around their site today I came across this little gem. Too bad it only comes in red :(

Everything looked good on the site till I read "dry clean only".  I like washing my Empire since it does tend to get dirty after my trips.

It's not the color that got me.  It's the price :'(

That's all for now.  Take care and until next time....be well.

I'd never dry clean Ventile despite those instructions, warm wash and rinse with absolute minimum soap

I never dry clean anything, even wool, I wash by hand if I'm afraid... But never dry-clean!

The same here : I have machine washed my ventile, my mackinaw filson, even old swedish army woollen pants and jacket...
