How to Wash, Maintain, and Keep Your Redwood Tall Clothing in Tip Top Shape

You're a tall slim guy, you've never had clothing that fit you before, and you just found Redwood Tall. Finally - clothing with long enough sleeves and a torso that fits.

But after you've worn it for the first time - how do you take care of it? God forbid it ruins in the wash, gets stained by other clothes, or shrinks.

Truly, it's simpler than you think. Here's a complete care guide for your new Redwood Tall, so you can keep looking classy and feeling comfortable for years:

100% Cotton

At Redwood Tall, we made an effort to make all our products with 100% cotton, because we believe tall slim guys deserve to be comfortable in what they wear.

Using 100% cotton creates a softer shirt with a subtle stretch that's comfortable and warm without feeling too hot. But with that comes some adjusted care instructions - as you've probably discovered yourself, cotton loves to shrink.

Here's a step by step process that's straightforward, easy, and low-maintenance to keep your 100% cotton Redwood clothing in tip-top shape for years to come:

1. Wash with Like Colors

Sure, our shirts are made with 100% cotton, but they can handle a normal wash cycle like a champ. Just make sure to wash with like colors to avoid the off chance of staining your new Oatmeal Henley bright pink;)

2. How to Avoid Pilling

After a while of wearing, washing, and drying, our shirts and hoodies have a chance of pilling. But there's an easy fix! If you want your Redwood to last longer and stay soft, try washing on the delicate cycle. It's gentler on the cotton, and will help your clothing stay durable for even longer.

3. Tumble Dry on Low

That's right - you can tumble dry on low without worry. Even though our shirts are 100% cotton (which typically shrinks in the dryer), we pre-washed it, so you can trust our shirts shrink no more than 3% after that first wash. Laying flat to dry is always an option if you're truly concerned, but throwing it in the dryer shouldn't be a problem.

4. No Shrinkage

Like we said, you can expect our shirts to shrink less than 3% - and that's on the off chance it shrinks at all. We know how frustrating it is to get clothes that fit - but then don't fit after you wash them once. That's why we made sure to create durable clothing that won't shrink.

5. Problems? We Offer Free Returns

On the off chance your shirt shrinks, pills too quickly, or starts showing unnatural wear-and-tear - reach out to us at We provide fast and free returns (that includes shipping), so you don't lose a penny when you need a replacement.

That's all - it's really that simple. No complicated washing routine, no worry or stress. You can be confident your Redwood Tall will stay comfortable, stylish, and high quality for years down the road.
