^ I've said this before but I have used Procion reactive dye from Dharma Trading Co and I couldn't be happier. They also sell detergent which is really cheap, and will last you quite a few dye baths if you are wanting to do many.

As far as fading goes, my Geller pants have stayed very deep black after 3 hot washes and dryer cycles already, whereas the original dye started fading in 1 cycle. What dyes have you used Zissou?

I buy my wjk "3 pack" style tees from either http://zozotown.com or http://offside-web.com. While there are many stores that carry them, I've noticed these two stores are the most likely to repeatedly restock their inventory of this item during each season. So if they're sold out of your size today, keep watching and within a month or two they will have it again.

How common is this on more expensive shirts? I know that cheap cotton towels will often use polyester thread. But most reasonably high quality "Made in USA" or "Made in England" towels will use cotton thread. But perhaps this a more important issue in towels-- e.g. polyester thread is abrasive relative to cotton.

Procion from Dhrama was already on the top of my list to try:

I'm actually less concerned about fading and more worried about seeing an uneven or splotchy look.

Splotchiness shouldn't be a problem, just mix the dye and salt very well first and stir the clothing for 20 minutes. Take special care when you're putting in the soda ash because that will cause splotchiness if it gets directly onto the clothes you are dyeing. Are you planning on dyeing dark colors or light colors? When I dyed things using the procion I was doing blacks, but even then there were no splotches.

So this came in the mail today, and surprise surprise, the measurements provided were indeed wrong, ended up being too large on me instead of too small. Oh well, gonna flip.

I have dyed multiple white OCBDs kooky colors with Dharma Trading Procion's dyes, and gotten completely perfect, non-splotchly results when I followed the instructions they gave exactly.   A key step is to pre-wash with a detergent called Synapthrol they sell.
