Shirt can be Worn 100 Days without Stinking
May 3, 2013
A no-wash shirt might be the answer for those of you out there who hate doing laundry.
A New York City startup by the name of Wool & Prince has created a shirt that needs very little maintenance. The button-down shirt is made from soft wool that doesn't need ironing or cleaning. In fact, a person could wear it for 100 days in a row without taking it to the cleaners.
According the company's founder, the idea came from the fact that guys will wear jeans several days in a row without giving them a good cleansing. Button-down shirts, however, need to be washed after every wear.
The company's motto is simple: "A wool shirt worn for 100 days straight. No washing. No dry cleaning. No wrinkles. No odor."
The so-called Better Button-Down shirt had a Kickstarter goal of $30,000. As of this writing, the company has generated an impressive $167,520. The campaign still has 21 days to go.
The company claims to have spent six months developing its Cotton-Soft wool fabric, which is reportedly six times softer than cotton. What's even more impressive is that the no-wash shirt is naturally wrinkle and odor-free.
One of these maintenance-free shirts can be yours at the Kickstarter price of $98. It's unclear how much Wool & Price intends to charge for the apparel if and when it hits retail racks.
