Reviewed by Mike from Oregon on Sunday, February 24, 2013I bought ten of these shirts in blue (two styles). So far I am very sorry. The shirt is great for toughness and comfort. But the color - at least the blue ones - gets all over everything. My arms and back are almost as dark as the shirts. Funny how the dye bleeds right out of the material but will not wash off my skin. I have washed the shirts several times. I looked up color setting remedies and tried adding salt to the wash, vinegar to the rinse, and used almost a whole box of the color grabbing sheets you throw in the washer. I turned the shirts wrong side out and washed them five more times through complete cycles today. Hot water, cold water, it doesn't seem to matter - the color grabbing sheets still turn dark blue after all the washes. The shirts are noticeably faded after today's washing so I will try wearing them again and if they still leech dye onto me I will throw them away. Almost $300 worth of them will go in the garbage.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Vladi from The Pacific NW on Tuesday, February 19, 2013I'm a big fan of KAKADU Outdoor/Work Shirts. The shirt styles are unique, with classy details, like Leather Trim, as on this CABLE Shirt. The "Gunn-Worn Canvas" material of these rugged shirts is similar in texture and thickness to a good pair of work jeans, and comfortable. You'll love this quality shirt, it's worth it!
