Must be why they're making clothes so crappy they start to look like shit after just a few washes. Gotta keep the cycle going. I'm looking at you stretchy jeans, flannel shirts that pill too quickly, and clothing that collects stains with little more than a dirty glance.

I haven't found that to be true. Where are you shopping lately? I've long been a Banana Republic fan, but I can see the future of that may be changing. The overpriced pants that I've bought the Banana have tended to be a good value over time as they were durable and low care (lots of wrinkle free apparrel).

Recently, though I've found Target has got their stuff together and I'm finding they are definitely my go to for pants, especially jeans.

I'm transitioning to Target for that reason. They have a brand of shirts, Goodfellow, which are nice and thick and feel really sturdy. I already have two, I'm gonna see how they hold up.

Cool. I’ll have to check those out in the future. The Banana always had the edge as far as shirts go. Target stuff usually felt thin and wrinkled way too easily.
