    I just picked up two silk button-front shirts on the cheap. One is Black and one is an Off-White/Light Beige.

    How can I prevent these shirts from fading, since I plan to wear them in the sun once the warmer weather rolls around?
    Ostensibly, the Black one would fade easier than the Off-White one but will the Off-White one still fade?

    Hand wash, cold. Any good cleaners will do this.
