All,
I've lost a few shirts to holes in the left elbow due to learning elbows at desk at work. I seem to recall an old tailor once showing me some type of slip-on external elbow protector that could be ordered, it was round and hat an elastic band I think. Of course, at the time I thought it would just look stupid, but now that I've lost more shirts I'm willing to give it a try. Does anyone know where could get one online? My searches came up empty.
Thanks,
D

Leather elbow patches will fix all these shirts. You will look rebellious yet stylish.

yeah, I know, sounds ridiculous but I only seem to have elbows in such position when I'm reading at desk so I can close the door in such situations and hence not be seen looking ridiculous. Of course I could learn to avoid said elboow position but that has been unsuccessful so far ....

Simple solution -- get an extra mouse pad and use it to rest your elbow and save your shirt.

I keep an extra mouse pad at work for this exact reason.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
