If you’re like me, you hope your favorite button down dress shirt will last forever.
Unfortunately, they are typically made of cotton, not Kevlar, so they do wear out
and break down over time. Some of the problems you commonly encounter can
be fixed while other symptoms indicate it’s time to retire the shirt and purchase a
new one. The International Fabricare Institute expressed that cotton button-down
shirts are designed to withstand 52 wearings and cleanings. That’s only once per
week for a year. If you’ve had your favorite shirt for 5 years and you’ve worn it
every other week, it’s living on borrowed time so treat it kindly. Below are some
of the more common problems with laundered shirts.
The picture on the right shows a torn
sleeve on a men’s dress shirt just above
the sleeve placket. Closer inspection
shows the area that isn’t torn but rather
is worn; it’s a yarn failure caused by
rubbing or chafing from the elbow of the
wearer. Don’t believe me? While wearing
a button down shirt, bend your arm and
look where your elbow is –it’s right
above the sleeve placket.
Fading Stripes on Striped
Yarn Failure is most common on striped
shirts; you’ll see one of the colors in the
stripe give out while the other holds
strong (it sometimes looks like fading
stripes).Looking at the inset of the picture
above to the right, you can see the yarn is
giving way and will create a hole soon (I
know this shirt isn’t striped, but it still
illustrates yarn failure).
