Ok, here's a strange one for ya.

For years I have been getting small holes in the belly button area of most t-shirts I own.  They are restricted to that area and not elsewhere.  I'm not talking cheap t-shirts either.  "Quality" brands such as Diesel and Hugo Boss are not immune.

My ex used to get similar holes in her t-shirt, and another female friend of mine experiences the same thing too.  It doesn't make sense to be from bugs in my drawers or the like as the holes are always in the same area.

Does anyone else experience this issue?  Anyone care to explain why this happens?

You remember the scene in the Matrix where Neo is strapped to a table, with Agent Smith interrogating him ?

Oh, my belt gets caught up in that area all the time when I do it up and makes holes in my t-shirts.

Yep belts, or in our case we had a wicker stick laundry basket and carrying this on the hip lead to exactly what you're describing...

(took us an age to work it out too!)

Washing machine or dryer can be rough on cloths sometimes.

We used to use these kinds of things instead of softner, and they could be a little rough on clothes too, for some strange reason ;) http://www.tmart.com/2-Dryer-Washer-Washing-Laundry-Balls-Fabric-Softener_p85519.html

It's incredible the variety of problems you can get solved here on Geekzone.  My money'd be on belt buckles too.  Don't tuck your t-shirts in do you?

It's part of the missing sock conspiracy I'm sure.

I have exactly the same problem, and like others here have long suspected my belt buckle. Unfortunately, due to having "that cholesterol" talk from my Dr recently, I've shed a bit of weight, so my belt is definitely needed. I've been musing whether a move to a more t-shirt friendly belt may be a possible solution (my belt has a few decorative sharp bits on it).
