Default Something New
A shirt you can wear for 100 days without having to wash or iron.

US company "Wool & Prince" says normal button-down shirts wrinkle and smell after a wear or two.
It's new wool shirts, however, require just a gentle wash once every 100 wears.

This is from UK paper " The Daily Mail "
The shirt you can wear for 100 DAYS without washing (or ironing) | Mail Online

The new shirts are made of wool which lasts six times longer than cotton and is naturally anti-wrinkle and odor-fighting.
The company has spent six months developing its trade-marked Cotton-Soft wool fabric for the shirts

The company said it did not expect anyone to wear their shirt 100 days in a row.
But the spokesman added: 'If you want to go for the 100 Day Challenge, we aren't going to stop you.'

I have to say that I wouldn't wear the same shirt even for 30 days in a row but this does seem like a new product worth trying.
The shirts look pretty good in the pictures shown but they could cost $95 ( 63 )

This might be a splendid idea for those going on a long cruise....not quite as many shirts have to be put in your case

Come on: that perspiration and dirt and grime have to go somewhere. Just because the fabric fights odor and wrinkles dosen't mean it's clean. Yuck!

I Don't think that anyone who wears the shirt for 100 days between washings will find themselves invited to many activities and the list of close friends is likely to be very short!!! Such a person would probably be a biological disaster in the making!!!

That may be true at home but on a cruise ship by the time people would take notice it would be time to get off unless it would be a round the world cruise.
