Pilling on clothes

Wondering if anyone else has issues with ltt clothing pilling? I have 3 blank shirts, 1 was bought maybe a year before the other 2. You can tell the older one looks different with the amount of small pilling built up. Same thing with the stealth sweatpants. 

 

The shirts I've typically laundered with the rest of our clothes in warm/hot wash, tumble dry low. The sweatpants I've always done the cold wash/hang dry.

 

How has everyone's clothing held up over time? My wardrobe is basically ltt + Kirkland (Costco) and I love the feel of all my ltt stuff but want to keep it in good shape.

I have a couple blank T-shirts. So far I haven't noticed much (if any) pilling after a dozen or more washes. (I do a "warm" wash, cold rinse, and tumble dry on low.) The color is slightly lighter than the newest one (a tax rant shirt), but I don't know if that's due to wear or just variation between batches of shirts. Interestingly, the print inside the neck is peeling off of one but fading on the other.

 

Even after they're "broken in" like this, the Creator Warehouse blanks are the best damn T-shirts I've bought.

I sold my soul for ProSupport.

Tax Write-off and blanks are fine for me, "trust me bro" (ironically) has a fair amount of pilling and crackling from me (cold wash, gentle detergent, low tumble) after about a dozen or so washes.

Hey there!

Pilling is a normal part of the wear-and-tear of most clothing items and is typically caused by friction on the surface where pilling occurs. You can prevent pilling, or reduce the speed at which it occurs, by observing all or some of the following care guidelines:

 
1. Never tumble dry the garment; instead, allow it to air dry.
2. Avoid wearing backpacks or other items that make direct contact with the garment
3. Avoid making direct contact with surfaces while wearing the garment (i.e., leaning up against a wall, etc.). Pilling will be exacerbated on rougher surfaces (i.e., brick as opposed to drywall).
 
Pilling can also be repaired. You can do so by making use of a fabric shaver, which can be obtained inexpensively at your local dollar store or department store.

I hope this is helpful!
