I've had my black trial shirt from Modern Tailor for a few weeks now and I do like the way it fits, but is there something that can be done about the massive attraction of lint? It's more than just a few fuzzies here and there, it's nearly covered in crap after an hour. I'm scared to walk away from my lint brush!

I plan on ordering some more shirts soon. Should I avoid a certain type of material or can they be pre-treated some way?

No pets to worry about.

Obviously some shirts are more prone to static cling than others, no need to be a jackass about it.

I can't remember exactly what the modern tailor trial shirt is made out of, hence my inquiry. For those of you that buy black shirts, are you particular about your fabric choice due to lint?

Lol...lint roller...or something of the like. Just leave one at your desk and you'll be fine lol. I don't find it attracts as much lint as you say.

Dark colored clothes attract fuzz/cat fur/etc. Believe me. There's nothing you can do about it, except using a garment brush/lint roller to remove the fluff. Why do you think noisy plaid sportcoats are so popular around here?

Hmm....I dunno why it seems that this particular shirt is so bad. Even when I get it back from the cleaners it has lint on it. I would expect that to be the time when it was in its best condition
