The Mercenary Coat is now up for pre-orders! Redesigned and different from the previous stye, this coat boasts more metal accents and MORE POCKETS! I renamed it to the Mercenary coat with all the extra utilitarian parts and pockets for gadgets and storage. The material is still a high quality heavy cotton with a polyster lining.
Machine Washing + Air Dry:
I tested washed the coat to see how it holds up being machine washed. Metal components can damage a washing machine, be sure to turn it inside out, then place it into a mesh laundry bag. I washed it as follows:
After washing I hung it on a coat hanger and immediately wiped off all excess water from the metal parts before leaving it to dry. In my test it took overnight to fully dry. (It would take about one day to overnight depending on the current weather temperature).
Results: No shrinkage, the coat was intact, the fabric felt normal, the color was the same, the fur was still fluffy, and the metal pieces were fine.
Machine Washing + Machine Drying:
I test washed it a second time to check how it would hold up in a dryer. Do NOT machine dry the hood, the fur will melt and become matted, this is irreversible. Remove the hood before machine drying, the hood MUST be air dried.
Since the coat is heavy and it was in mesh bag, I actually had to put it in the dryer again for a second run and let it hang dry for a bit after. I reattached the hood when it fully dried.
Results: The sleeves and chest shrunk by 0.5 inch, and the front and back length shrunk by 1 inch. Otherwise the coat was intact, the fabric felt normal, the color was the same, the fur was still fluffy from being air dried, and the metal pieces were fine.
Please note that washer and dryer machine brands, spin cycle times, and temperature can differ, results can vary. The safest way to wash your coat would be to hand wash and air dry. The above was a test wash and test dry and should not be considered a definitive outcome. Please wash and dry with your best judgment.
