Haven't tried Lady White but have tried Velva, Sunspel, Norse and a few others. My go to for years was AA for basics but it's a similar situation. They shrink slightly (sometimes a lot) and just look old after a couple of machine washes at 30º.

Just bought Arket & Velva on here and this time will go full Meyer on them. Really impressed with the Arket tee quality actually. Great for the price.

Tested this stuff on a shirt I have had for a few years and it's the business, removes yellowing and the 'build up'. Thanks for the recommendation.

Powders are the best. I have retired/put into storage tees after whitening and soaking without washing and they go yellow quick.
I have lots of tees but barely any sweats or casual shirts. I'd be gutted if I ruined anything other than a worn tee.

It's not made clear but the build up of sweat/skin oils over time can cause goretex to de-laminate when you come to wash it. It won't fuck up wool. Planned obsolescence Evil. Maybe soak it after a long period of storage and not washing?

Got a coachjacket with a print on the back, should be able to get it to the drycleaners without the print coming off right?
It's on of those cheap CDG jackets

Co sign on Deo Go, it's excellent.

Use mitchum roll on and obvs there are days when you sweat through that and it gets on shirts. Only thing I've found that gets rid of the fabric hardening.
