Fraying of Collars and Cuffs

Q: Why do my shirt collars and cuffs eventually fray?

A: Shirts can wear thin and fray from repeated use and care over time. Although wear area abrasion damage can show up anywhere, it is most often seen first in the cuff edges and folds, as well as the neck/collar area. There really isn’t any way to prevent or fix this type of damage. However, heavier woven shirts with tighter weaves are more durable than oxford or other thinner woven materials.
