I own a number of Eton shirts, all beautifully made and machine washable/hang to dry. They all age well, but the sleeves fray before any other wear is visible. Any ideas, can they be repaired?

I know that my drycleaner offers that service and do tailoring in house. I'm sure you could find a good tailor and they could probably get it done for you.

Could you tell me what the Eton shirts are made of? Interesting if they are wrinkle-resistant.

100% cotton, and they're ready to wear when they dry with minimal wrinkles.

A good tailor cn "turn the cuffs." But, depending on how skilled the tailor is, it will shorten the sleeves slightly.
