    Guys have you had trouble with your jcrew t-shirts color fading after just a couple of washes? I got a bunch of Jcrew vintage polos and they all seem to wash badly. I had one fade in patches making it unwearable after just 1 wash!

    I only wash my clothes in cold/soft water and hang dry them.

    Any advice/tips?

    I guess someone at the JC creative ideas lab (...) really took the term 'Vintage* to heart.

    No, haven't noticed. that with mine. Of course all clothes fade a little over time with washings. What detergent do you use?

    My money is on industrial strength bleach.

    That's your problem, son. My recommendation for all clothes: Woolite Dark. And go easy on how much you use.
