Frequently Asked Questions
Returns & Exchanges
How do your shirts fit?
- Like a dream. A tailored, athletic dream with a slight taper, high arm holes, and perfectly positioned shoulders.
What are the measurements for a specific product?
- You can see our size guide here, or on any of our product pages to get a good idea of it.
What materials are your shirts made of?
- Our shirts are typically made of a soft, 100s 2-ply cotton or better, with occasional options having a little satin for a nice sheen, or a little lycra for a comfortable stretch. Your significant other WILL try to steal yours.
Are they non-iron?
- Not at this time. While we like an always-pressed shirt in theory, in practice the chemicals used to make non-iron work are too harmful to the environment for us to use responsibly in manufacturing. Simply hanging them to dry or taking them to the dry cleaners will get you a long way without having to iron yourself, though.
The shirt I want is sold out!
- Sorry – when we say limited-edition we’re not like your ex saying she’s done with you for the last time. We really mean it. But you can always let us know when you want a shirt to come back, and if enough people get together, we might remake it!
Do the shirts come with collar stays?
- Yes, they all come with two removable plastic collar stays already in place, so you look crisp and ready for business all the time. It’s the one case of a stiff neck that you’re gonna want.
How do I wash or care for my shirts?
- Dry clean, or wash cold and tumble low. Check out our full section on shirt care.
What is the status of my order?
- You can always find out the shipping status by checking the confirmation email that comes shortly after it ships. You can login to your Vastros account to check status too. If you’re having trouble tracking your order, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Even if not, no worries. You can send them back free within 30 days of purchase, and look damn good while you’re thinking about it.
What if my item is damaged, defective, or incorrect?
- There are free returns within 30 days of purchase, so you’re all good in the off chance that there’s something wrong.

What do you do with used shirts that are returned?
- If it’s returned within the 30 day time period, we analyze the product to see if it’s in resellable condition, and if not we donate it. After 30 days, we donate it regardless. No matter what, your old shirt will find a happy home. See details.
How do I pronounce Vastros?
- Vast is like “fast,” with a V, and ros is like “rose.” Rolls off the tongue, no?
I have a great idea for Vastros! What’s the best way to let you know about my genius?
- We were born from collaboration and would be happy to talk with you. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form, and share the details. Though we don’t always have time to reply to every idea that comes by, we’ll definitely reach back out if interested!
Where are Vastros products made?
- Vastros shirts are made with fabrics sourced from artisans all over the world, and sustainably assembled with care in our studio in India.
Where are you based?
- We are based in San Francisco, California, land of tech startups, beautiful bridges, and massive hills. We bring a little bit of the SF flavor to all our designs, and to our fit, which is perfect for the modern urban guy. This means we’re always available in U.S. business hours if you want to hit us up!
What’s your commitment to sustainability?
- We make our shirts in a responsible, impact-minimizing way to let the environment breathe easy. We avoid using chemicals like those found in non-iron shirts to prevent harmful runoff from our production studio. We source small-batch artisan-crafted fabrics that already exist to construct our limited-run shirts, so no material gets wasted. And at the end, we take any shirts back and give them to charity through our donations program. That’s how we keep the world spinning.
How do you think about designing shirts?
- We draw inspiration from the city around us, from the landscapes of the world, and the daily lifestyle of the modern man. We believe in extra care to details both bold and subtle, which always gives our shirts their extra edge.

Caring for your Vastros shirt
Shirts Well Worn
Our shirts can help you get the devil-may-care look, but only if you take care of them first. Each shirt has handcrafted fine details, and it'd be a shame to see them turn into handcrafted lumps of shrunken frayed threads.
For superior results, lasting quality, and a much more relaxed life, we recommend dry cleaning each of your Vastros shirts. You don't even have to break a sweat on these guys and they'll be paying you back for a long time.
Guidelines on washing
If you prefer not to dry clean, most of our cotton shirts can be washed with like colors in cold water, and then tumble dried low. To prevent shrinkage you can hang them on a wooden hanger to air dry instead.
All of our shirts come with collar stays already inside to keep your collar straight and ready for business-casual wear. Make sure to remove the collar stays from your shirt before washing and/or ironing it. If you don't, they are likely to warp with the heat, causing the shirt's collar to curve and give you a kinda psychedelic 70s look.
