Looks good, like buttons; but scratchy and shrinks a lot
on April 13, 2014
I bought these for my teen-aged son to survive on an international school trip where he had to wear "collared" shirts and not his adored, soft t-shirts that he lives in. I bought several to get him through the trip simply because I assumed that "100% ComfortSoft Cotton" (twice mentioned!) meant, in fact, that the material was actually somewhat soft. After all, it's Hanes, right? But when I pulled the first one out of the bag, it felt like burlap. I washed and tumble-dried it, hoping somehow to soften it up, but all it did was shrink tremendously! Okay, that's understandable. But, the burlap feel just didn't go away. Still, maybe that's survivable -- so I tried it on myself. The cuffs around the short sleeves chafed my upper arms and drove me nuts. I don't know if this would bother a lot of people, and the shirt does look good with its faux wood buttons, but Hanes, take the "100% ComfortSoft Cotton" out of the description!
