"The GAP " is no more


The markets are crashing, clients are yelling and traders are loosing money; you are in the middle of it all! That is stress at its peak so you really don't need anymore stress right now.  You are going to need all the confidence you can muster up to get through the day but instead you are sitting there worrying that someone will see this....

"THE GAP" is haunting you!
So what do you do? Sure you can wrap a scarf around it but you are wearing a gorgeous necklace and hate hiding it. Or you can fumble with a safety pin every time you put the shirt on but it will take forever to get it right and it won't be neat.
So here is what I did...This has transformed my life! I no longer hesitate when I pull a button down out of my closet. Its crisp, clean, professional and GAP-less. Here is the easy step by step!
#1. Buy these:


#2: Put the shirt on and mark with a pencil exactly where the gap is (it will be between two buttons at the chest area)

#3: Sew the eye on the same side as all the buttons (I.e. the side which when buttoned is closer to the body)

#4. Sew the hook on the other side, make sure you check that the hook and eye are lined up and won't be visible when the shirt is closed.


#5: YOU ARE DONE! WEAR IT WITH CONFIDENCE


P.S. The picture above is from www.the-shirt.com a women's shirt manufacturing company that developed a new technology to prevent gapping (saves you the hassle of sewing :). I can't really vouch for them yet because I haven't gotten my shirt in the mail yet but I'll report as soon I know!
