ele-nce asked: Hi! I'm wondering if you could help me with a problem. My bf got his first job that requires business attire, so my button-down game has been pretty strong this year. In the last two months, however, the elbows of his shirts have ripped. Every single one. I don't think he has outgrown his size. He has a lot of regular brands; from Zara to Ralph Lauren. His new Banana Republic shirt ripped today! His last one! I'm at my wit's end. Are elbows a common problem? Have any suggestions? Thank you!!
Haha this is such a common problem - he probably sits at his desk on his elbows for much of the day. Happened to me when I used to work in finance and a banker buddy of mine has the same problem. I’ve always thought that someone should make dress shirts with reinforced elbows…maybe someone does, but I don’t know who unfortunately. You could theoretically put patches on the elbows, but I don’t know if it’d be worth it - might look weird in a business environment. I would stick to thicker fabrics like oxford cloths - check out Kamakura. They make great shirts for a decent price. If you want to just accept the elbow issue and go cheap, then Charles Tyrwhitt has decent shirts that usually run 4/$200. Hope that helps.

Depends on your preferred aesthetic. I’d go LBM myself. If you want to go even shorter, then check out Ami.

Not a bad decision to have to make…EG for me.
