Now before you all suspect damage due to dry cleaning, I launder all my shirts at home. I machine wash them with cold water on the gentle cycle and do not dry them in a dryer. I am careful when ironing, and always iron around the buttons.
Has anyone else experienced the same problem? I've had a lot of shirts made from various shirtmakers and have never had this problem. Occasionally some buttons were not properly sewed on, but chipped and broken buttons - never.
I will be visiting HK later this month and plan on showing the shirts to AC. I hope they will exchange the chipped buttons for me.
