Cheers for this. Want to get a good fade on mine and reduce the sheen but need to avoid the lines you get from stuff in the machine.

From RM UK when I asked as it said dry clean only… Havent had a problem washing mine in the machine.

You can wash the M-65 jacket with confidence, we've experiment washing the jacket many times ourselves. If you need just to give it a freshen up, i can suggest to hand-wash in bath or a gentle cycle in the washing machine and hang dry.

So sure the measurements on the website used to say it would shrink an inch in length.

Mine lost literally next to no size all over so unless your sticking it at 90 degrees I can’t see it.

@hanto - just wear the shit out of it and the sheen will go. Washing didn’t do much for the sheen on mine but wearing did.

The real mccoys m65, is lovely washed a couple of times. There was one in the old shop, washed pretty hard with the waist band and bottom band tied tight. Looked great
