    I lurk here mostly, and I have to say that I have learnt so much reading this thread, but I am shocked that someone could spend so much time (and money) to dress properly and then wear the shirt for more that one day without washing it first....

    I don't know who you are. But I love you. I love you because that's your first post. After all that lurking, you register to say this.

    Cheers.

    If the shirt is clean then what the heck is the point of washing it? It isn't like I walk around with wrinkly and smelly shirt. [​IMG]

    Also, I feel like the shirt/fabric is being worn out every time I wash it and subject it to the iron. I have enough shirts so that they rest for couple weeks before being worn again. But before I put them back in the closet, I air it out and steam out the wrinkles here and there.

    What can I say, I just don't perspire that much, especially when I spend 8+ hours in a building with AC and sit in front of a computer looking at numbers and SF [​IMG]

    Well, you live and learn. Fair play to you all. I'm strictly one shirt a day and may be two if occasion calls.

    I don't perspire, as a rule, so that is not the issue.

    I have too looked at a shirt and wondered if i could wear it once more. May be I should look again? Nah.

    The shirt I am wearing today in WAYWRN has been worn like 5 times and it still smells good and is clean.
    It's the undershirt that is absorbing all the perspiration (if any) from my body and I don't get neck stains.

    5 times is a bit on the high side lol. do you mean without any washes between all 5 wears?

    Didn't you just order it?

    Not convinced until you post fit pics.

    I ordered it 4/17. I was really surprised as well. Fit pics won't be until earliest tomorrow. I have to go car shopping with my wife tonight. Most miserable thing in the world to me.

    One more. Buttons are a darker MOP type. I hope they work with it.
