get what you pay for?

I have often felt some of the hi tech running stuff I bought was over priced and kind of 'marketing hype' but I do see a difference buying this cheaper shirt. The main thing is care, just look at this shirt wrong and it wrinkles, No matter how careful you wash and dry, it will wrinkle some. Never had that problem with my other running shirts or shorts. it is a slightly different feeling fabric almost like the old terry/poly blends from back in the day. This shirt is already starting to unravel in a spot or two (I have running gear from several companies that has shown little to no wear over the years).
Fits as expected and hangs well on the body
Not too tight or too loose
Decent looking, nice color (True Red)
Wrinkles very easy
Can bounce around some when running
Does not seem like it will last long, already seeing damage and wear after a month or two.
I did just buy a second one in a different color so it can not be all that bad, but think it is more a case of not finding anything better yet and not wanting to drop $30 to $40 on stuff that appears decent online that I am not familiar with. Hopefully having two of these in the rotation might make them last longer.
UPDATE: The second one I bought is a Royal Blue. It looks good too, nice coloring and fits well, Like how it hangs on body. It seems less prone to wrinkling than the red one, or it hides them better..still does wrinkle a little though but not as bad as the red one...
