    Christmas present from the girlfriend. It was a really nice one.

    It fits a fucking five year old now.

    By the way, the problem here is not that you washed it in the washer. It's that you dried it in the dryer. :uspinjob:

    I did the SAME exact thing a last week to a Calvin Klein Merino wool sweater...washed it and threw it in the dryer by accident...it shrunk so bad I doubt even this will work.

    I only own clothes made of cotton. It never really crossed my mind. I've been washing my clothes on the same program for years and never had this happen to me.
    That won't work. It's too far gone. The sweater is like felt, like the fabric has completely changed, and it's literally less than half its size. I looked into that trick, and it only works if it's slightly fucked up.
    :jj:
    :spit:

    Shit, man. That sucks. I got you beat, though. I can't pull mine even over my head anymore.
