This only happened to my dune and plaster. Other colors all have been ok including the moon and clay.

The shirts were never washed so it's not the wash. I don't really know what the cause was but I figured it was the deordorant

Its the additives and ingredients in conventional, drug store type chemical based deodorants. Try switching to a Thai Crystal, or other Crystal/rock deodorant stick as its simply salts and such. Most conventional deodorants (and detergents) have tons of chemicals, fragrances, metals such as aluminum, etc. With heat, sweat, natural acidity, etc the sweat coming from you carries these properties which most likely are ruining the material. Its worth $10-15 or so to get a washing machine cleaner, hypoallergenic free and clear detergent (such as 7th generation, ECOS, etc) and sticking with that from now on.

 

I haven't had problems in years with this switch. Its the way the additives, chemicals, dyes and such affect the plant based material - cotton. Synthetic materials, especially in workout clothes have these properties already as they are not quality materials and therefore can handle a lot more. If anyone notices it on the grey shirts (as they are a synthetic blend) id be surprised. Lesson learned from my damaging tons of high end, delicate fabrics, colors, etc. The crystal deodorants are available on Amazon (prime), and most health food stores. For what its worth, the crystal rock salt deodorants actually work= better. Its not the garment manufacturers fault, or even suppliers - cotton, quality dyes, etc. are no match for industrial, petrol based cleaners. 

 

I hope this helps. Friends and sales associates have reported success after switching themselves and their clients.

I have strictly been using Malin + Goetz Eucaliptis deodarant (all natural chemical free ingredients) long before I started wearing JE, and none of my clothes have ever had any stains or anything. The pic that Jbidwal shared with everyone is exactly how my Plaster u neck looks (except it's all over the front of the shirt). My moon u neck is starting to show faint signs of the same thing around the collar of the shirt

I never had issues either before. I wear dress shirts that come in more contact that these tees and never had issues. In regards to the deordorant suggestions, how well do they work compared to clinical strength stuff? I workout daily and need something that works well.

Also love the drop tomorrow. Want everything minus the shorts and mercer tee. Will have to narrow it down though

The Malin + Goetz I use lasts all day (I workout/run/bike/yoga so I'm always active) and it's like a clean, faintly minty kind of scent not strong at all, goes on clear (not like a gel or anything). I sweat way less too (when I'm not being super active). You can probably get it virtually anywhere in the states

Folks gotta post pics of that co mix sweater this week though, real curious to see what that fabric is like

Tons of things that are not simply mineral salts. Even salt water (which is clearly a natural resource) or simply sun rays  can ruin cars that are parked near beach homes as we all know. If this isn't working, try something with less ingredients that are 100% natural. Also, it could be the acidity in your body reacting with certain things in those specific dyes or pigments. Some people experience this when they turn fake jewelry brown, or bicolored. The acidity is stronger than the clothing, jewelry, etc. 

 

 

Heres the site for reference, I just saw they had a $1 coupon on the page which is basically $20-25$ off depending which product you get. Worth trying or continue to replace shirts - I did and finally addressed the issue. I hope this helps.

I was hoping so, but I guess not yet, if at all. The Mercer is good in the interim I suppose.

Anyone interested in a large white mercer? I have one I'm planning on returning, I'd be selling for way under retail.
post #19618 of 25380
Any of 6"2 or more? If yes, have you hemmed your 34"JE jeans? I wonder if it will help with the knee area.

Anyone have a way to get the size chart for the washed black denim jacket releasing tomorrow?

post #19620 of 25380
Torn whether to get my Villain and Kake size 2 or Rider size 3 for the denim jacket.
