If you miss one, ouch! Probably so it will stay neatly folded until it is sold.

I know! its so annoying. They do it to keep the shirt straight and neat. But I was shopping the other day and I wanted to hold the shirt up to me, to see if it was the right size and not too big, and all those damn pins were in there. I started yanking all the f'ing pins out so i could unfold the shirt and size it up.

because, if you get pricked, then it stains the shirt, and you have to buy another, and hopefully find the pin. BTW i always find all the pin's, and go over it with a magnet just in case.

The pins is what make the shirts so expensive.

Too keep the front of the shirt in a shape that you can see it.

1 pin left collar
1 pin right collar
2 pins at neck - top button
-Flip over-
1 pin at left elbow (crest of the back of the shirt)
1 pin on right cuff (unfold)
1 pin on left cuff
-hold shirt up-
