    Wearing holes in my clothes...

    I wear my Imago with a Q-AM strap. More often that not I sling it across my chest so the bag rests against my hip. I've noticed that a lot of my t-shirts are now showing very small holes right where the buckle hits my chest.

    Has anyone else had trouble with this? I'm trying to figure out if it's the bag or the shirts... since I just ordered a bunch of new t-shirts and would rather not have holes in them.

    Nope... but then again, I don't wear my Q-AM strap all that often. Actually, my wife uses her's a lot now that I think of it, and whenever I do the laundry, I don't notice any usual wear marks.


      I just bought 100% cotton T's. After one wash, the fiber is fuzzy.
      While wearing one of them, I noticed the fuzz, in an area I know there is no contact with any component of my Small Cafe Bag.

      If I had noticed it after a wash or whenever I am not wearing them, I could have considered any of my TB bags a culprit.

      I have been a TB customer since 06. During that time I haven't seen a change in the clothes I bought a long time ago or are made of quality fabric.

      The new clothes are another matter, after washing, they fuzz, the fabric get flimsy... Some of them look so bad, I am wonder if I haven't bought disposable clothes.

      It is getting so frustrating that I have been considering buying fabric (cotton and microfiber) and have my clothes tailor made.

      So, in my experience, the culprit is the clothing industry, which choose to pair flashy branding and designs with made in China quality.
