FWIW - The same thing happened to me when I bought a pair of EGs at Saks. I also wore them for a day before realizing that one of the shoes was a 1/2 size small.

If you're dry cleaning, perhaps the chemicals are doing something to the thread? I'm just spitballing here. Maybe you can switch cleaners and experiment with a new shirt, see if it's a problem more with the shirt than with the...
