    I just got a T-Shirt from J.Crew and have worn it maybe 3 or 4 times and just washed it inside out cold water, and I noticed pilling on the back lower part of the tshirt. I never looked, so this may have happened before the actual washing.

    1) Why is this happening? Is it from me wearing it or washing it and can it be avoided?
    2) How can I safely remove this?

    This is called the "holey" t-shirt and is a common problem J Crew t-shirts. Best advice? Get everlane, hanes, or some other t.

    I love the fit of JCrew slim tees more than any brand - but the quality is total shit.

    I love the cut and the feel of the shirts more than any other brand I've tried. And my question pertained to shirts I"ve already bought, so telling me to buy another brand doesn't really help

    Well I think that what we are collectively saying is, if you want tees that last, don't buy JCrew. Nothing you can do now.
