    I’m new to your blog, so I’ve been reading all the archives. My husband has a very similar favorite shirt that wore out at the elbow & had a hard time saying goodbye.

    btw, I’m loving your site. From a small town girl in Ohio who doesn’t get to travel much anymore, your website has saved me.

    my mom likes to do that with my sneakers, but what can i say, i’m an incoming college freshman at UC santa cruz no less, what’s wrong with a little tatter and tear? the other morning i thought she threw away my pink keds which are fraying in the creases where my toes bend and i was SO ANGRY !!

    turns out she just put them in the garage (:

    I miss my old cardigan with the holes on the elbows. Women can be so cruel sometimes.

    S short sleeve shirt is the only option..I'm amazed you didn't think of it..
    Last week I ruined a beautiful J.Crew button down shirt because of a nasty ink stain on a cuff. It's now a beautiful short sleeves shirt…

    I'm sorry you had to let it go. Unless there are many holes elsewhere, why not take it to a tailor and make it into short sleeves next time. There are affordable tailors in Chinatown, and other places.

    NO! You don’t get it! Short sleeves aren’t the answer. That’s like amputating a leg; probably both since the other sleeve is likely the same way. Let the tailor repair it with a piece from the tail and add a contrasting piece of fabric to the tail. Voila! More STYLE!

    My beloved wife took my favorite button-down and threw it into the washing machine without undoing the collar buttons!

    It was painfully shredded into pieces.

    Took all the buttons off it and had my favorite tailor make a new ones with the old buttons on it as a token of remembrance of an old, dear friend..
