Drycleaner Issue

This may be nothing and I kind of feel silly posting a thread on it, but there is no monthly bullshit / random talk thread (which is really strange) so.. here it goes.

I got my new shirts back from the drycleaners - I am very paranoid since they are new and I spent a good deal on them - and noticed that they have small indented circles in the bottom. Through one of the circles is a hole that looks like it came from a pin. My girlfriend informs me that they will be okay with a wash, but even if that is the case it's still an annoyance for me.

I guess my question's are:

a) Will the shirts be okay?
b) If not, will this kind of thing damage the shirts in the long run?



I know my camera sucks.

I'm not an expert but considering that's the bottom of the shirt and is tucked in, I don't think you'll have any problems. My cleaners often leave marks on the bottom, but not circles like that.

when the body gets pressed it is placed on a form.
clamps ar set at the bottom to hold it in place, thats just just their impression.
thats considered acceptable.

your shirt has herpes. you will never get rid of the marks. all you can do is hope not to have a flare-up when you are out and about.

This seems feasible...

Kind of unacceptable for me though as I wear some of the shirts untucked to bars, etc..

I am glad to hear that it doesn't permanently affect the shirt though.
