Report: Some Shirts Good, Other Shirts Not Good

NEW YORK—A report released Thursday by the Brookings Institute confirmed that some shirts are good and other shirts are not good.

The research, conducted over a 10-year period, concluded that the average American has five to seven good shirts, and eight or more not-good shirts. Good shirts, the report confirmed, typically have collars on them.

“We found there are good shirts and not-good shirts, and that people tend to keep them separate from one another,” said lead researcher Francis Hamlin, adding that one dresser drawer will contain good shirts and another will contain the not-good shirts. “People also hang their good shirts on hangers. Bad shirts are deemed not worthy of being hung.”

“I wore a good shirt today because I knew I would be talking to the media,” Hamlin said, pointing at his white-collared shirt. “See? This is a good shirt.”

Stating that ties can be worn with good shirts but never bad shirts, the report confirmed that among the nation’s good shirts are white shirts, blue shirts, green shirts, yellow shirts, plaid shirts, and other-colored shirts. Among the bad shirts, the study continued, are white shirts, blue shirts, green shirts, yellow shirts, plaid shirts, and other-colored shirts.

Striped shirts, while reportedly sometimes good, can also be bad. In addition, long-sleeved shirts and short-sleeved shirts can be good shirts. The survey added that T-shirts are most oftentimes not that good, unless they are new, or have a design on them, or the individual just thinks the T-shirt is good because he likes it.

Ten percent of shirts, the study noted, are neither good nor bad, but are still perfectly decent shirts. Ninety-eight percent of shirts with stains on them are bad.

“Sometimes a good shirt can become a not-good shirt, especially if it gets slept in multiple times,” said Hamlin, adding that while excessive wrinkling can make a shirt bad, some individuals think wrinkling makes a shirt good. “On the other hand, a bad shirt very rarely becomes a good shirt.”

“My colleague, David, has nine good shirts,” he continued.

According to those surveyed, good shirts are worn when an individual plans to be outside and around other people during a planned event, while bad shirts are typically worn while “hanging out” alone inside one’s apartment. Sixty-five percent of the time, shirts with buttons on them are good shirts.

Expert analysis concluded that good shirts can be worn to work and bad shirts cannot be worn to work.
