I occasionally buy new BB shirts for wearing to work, but the last two I've purchased have left me rather dismayed when it comes to buttonhole sewing quality. Frays, etc. See pics below:

um, that is totally fine. just grab a pair of scissors. it is not like you paid 400 for someone to sew them by hand.

I find a pair of fingernail clippers does wonders for these little strings. Once I bring a shirt home, I usually spend a couple minutes snipping little strings that I feel may be a problem in the washing machine.
