You may be describing irritation from a serger/overlocker finish on seams rubbing against your skin. A Seger produces a quick (inexpensive) way to construct garments. However, there are numerous ways to do seams that predate the overlock types of finished seams. Abound seam (using silk or smooth polyester) or flat fell seam would not have that raised edge with threads wrapping over it that is likely rubbing your skin. If you cannot tolerate most serger finished seams, you may have to get clothes custom sewn with the more time-consuming types of seams (expensive) or learn to sew yourself. Someone might argue that the increased thickness provided by the fabric somehow increases the torque. I would argue that putting on a rubber glove does not substantially increase the thickness but certainly does improve the grip. Now if the bottle cap is crimped on with sharp points, the fabric enables the torque to be applied to the sides of those crimps without tearing off your skin, as the fabric fibers drag against the crimps. so in this case, there is an increased surface area providing the force against the cap. I will defer to the physicists on this one, but this is my take. It isn’t the atoms that make your shirt colorful. It’s the bonds between atoms in the dyes that are attached to the fibers of your shirt. A photon that encounters a bond between two atoms causes the electrons in that bond to go elsewhere, absorbing the photon’s energy. The lack of that (bluish) photon causes humans to perceive a (red) color. That’s how you get a redshirt. Then don’t tuck your shirts in! You probably could get away with it in a more formal setting if you wear a lightweight v neck sweater over it.( Lacoste or J Crew does this look well.) I think in modern times dress codes have relaxed quite a bit.
