A Great Shirt Gone Bad with Bubbling Collars
on October 21, 2013
This used to be a great shirt; something has changed. Every year for the last five or six years, I purchased 3-4 of these shirts twice a year, every year. They were excellent - good fit, good feel, good look, and they wore well - through the day and also over many washings. Something has changed in the process of making these shirts. Around 18 months ago, I started to notice that almost every single one of the new shirts I purchased had a fatal flaw - after the first washing, the collars start to bubble. The bubbles are different sizes and in different places, but they all bubble. These bubbles are impossible to iron out and they make the shirt look awful. At first, I thought it was a fluke, but three rounds of purchases later I had to accept the fact that it's not a fluke. My best guess is that the manufacturer has changed something essential in the collar which inadvertently created an awful problem. Really hope they fix it. Had to return the last batch.
