Recently, one of America's sweethearts trumped one of Hollywood's biggest divas in the high-maintenance department. Talking to Yahoo Beauty, Jennifer Aniston revealed that she regularly tailors her T-shirts, a move so uppity it makes Kim Kardashian reportedly employing a dedicated denim tailor seem much more logical. (Jeans are notoriously ill-fitting. Who alters T-shirts?)
Well, Jen, apparently. She told Bobbi Brown, "This is my secret: The trick to T-shirts is I that I usually tailor them. Which is silly, but it works." It seemed so odd coming from her, of all peoplethe future Mrs. Theroux has no qualms facing the paparazzi in flip flops, prescription eyeglasses, and a makeup-free face. Then it struck me: If laid-back, not-overly-vain-seeming Jen thinks T-shirt tailoring might really, actually be worth all the effort, maybe it is? Maybe it's like, say, sleeping with a few strands of hair curled around foam rollers (i.e. looks '50s-style high-maintenance, but is actually really easy and effective). So I decided to test it out, buying three different white T-shirts for a little experiment, taking each one to the tailor to see if alterations were worth it.
