You're buying cheap ass shirts

 

AND

 

the sleeves are too short for your arms, causing stress and stretching at the elbows resulting in ripped shirts.

Have you not seen the shirts with reinforced elbow protection pads ?

 

These are more industrial type shirts, tough, like military uniforms, probably not suitable for office look.

ive considered this.. but do i buy cheaper, or more expensive shirts? its unclear.. right now i wear your average run of the mill shirt from Macys or whatever... they cost anywhere between $25-$50

 

sleeve length is fine, i'm starting to think its because i roll my sleeves up...

She wouldn't be the first to suggest or do that. Only thing is if you make a habit of resting a pointy elbow on armrests, desks, tables, etc., you still stand a good chance of wearing away the outer material.

 

About the only thing an inside pad does is give you a little more cushion to make your elbow more comfy when resting on hard objects.

Oh yeah-- and prevent the ugly 2 tone outer pad look.

 

I wasn't thinking of the geeky look when I first mentioned it, was thinking more of the tough, rugged look of a mechanic shirt, etc.
