I'm not sure if this is just me or if you are having this problem, too. I'm having all my clothes fall apart. No, they aren't that old, but yet I'm still having little holes in shirts, sweaters with a little unraveling taking, etc. Here are some examples: Gap peasant shirt--2 small holes near bottom...randomness, yes? Talbots nice black v-neck sweater--unraveling at the 'v' part (and I'm not stretching it), Ann Taylor Loft sweater--the neckline/collar dealie unraveled from the rest of the shirt whereby placing a lovely hole. What gives? I love that sweater, but it is not mendable. The sweaters are less than 6 months old. The shirt is probably closer to a year old.
Is this just me or are you seeing this happen? None of these items were bought at an outlet either. Not that outlet clothes are made cheaper, because sometimes they are, sometimes not, but still.
Could I be too rough in the washing of them? I don't do the whole hand washing noise. I have two small children. I throw the crap in there and move on. I use Tide detergent and Downy fabric softener. I don't usually wash the jeans with the sweaters, but I'm probably guilty at time or two of this.
I went back to Ann Taylor to return and they would've exchanged it, but had none left (they have quick turnover in their clothing). They would refund me if I had my original receipt, but in the computer the sweater was down to $5 or something so they did nothing for me. Nothing.
So, I'm thinking about literally putting every single receipt for every piece of clothing I buy in a file and just busting those bad boys out and returning this crap when this happens. I paid good money for this stuff. I really love those 2 sweaters, but I can't wear them anymore! So sad! I don' t get to shop too often in areas where they have good stores. I have to drive an hour to Ann Taylor Loft! I need durable clothing!
Is it ME or are you having this happen too? Am I being too rough on my clothing?
