Nothing quite compares to a tight closeup on an embroidery design.
Selling shirts for years I’ve seen many people ‘hand’ the shirt, touch the design and register the tactile. This is the web’s next best thing.
Another thing that it took a while to learn is photographing a shirt on a table, you have to ruffle it a bit to give it dimension. It’s weird I didn’t notice it on other sites for a long time but once you see it, you see it everywhere. It’s taken twice as long to get my own good ruffled: not too much, not too little.
