For the past three or four years I have purchased the henley type shirts to wear with jeans. All purchases have been from a local store and always purchased the same brand.
Several weeks ago I found several on sale (winter colors and long sleeved) so bought them. I was so excited to have some different colors in my wardrobe.
I thought from the very beginning they did not seem right when I put them on. They seemed to stretch and not retain their shape...by the time I took them off the lower hem was so stretched out they were terrible looking.
This morning when hanging them up in the closet after their round in the washer and dryer(which is not working properly - another post on that problem) I see these tops have shrunk at least two inches in length in comparison to my old ones. The old ones have certainly been thru more cycles of washing and drying than these just bought several weeks ago.
Yes, in checking the fabric content they are the same as the old ones...just made in a different foreign country.
I hate shopping for clothes any way - and then when this happens just adds to the frustration.
So I suppose I will wear my old ones - until they wear out! (Don't say it - I may outgrow them first).
Happy Easter - and may your Easter outfit fit you lovely and you feel like a million dollar when wearing it.
