Feels like a longshot, but you did find that other person's cat...

I'm ruining my shirts. For the 6th time in the last few months, I was sitting at my desk at work today and felt like my elbow was cold. I reached down and discovered a tear in the left elbow of my dress shirt. Every time this has happened, it's been on the bottom of the left elbow, and it's always happened on a work day. Why is this happening to me?

They're mostly J. Crew shirts, but two of them were hardier Uniqlo shirts. I've walked around the office, seeing if theres a door frame or desk edge that I'm catching but nothing seems likely. I am right handed, and might rest my chin on my left elbow occasionally while mousing around, but it seems weird that that would be tearing them. They fit well, and I've never felt it tear (like if they were tight and I bent my arm and it tore or something). Anyone ever have similar problems? or culprits for me to investigate? I'd really like to nip this in the bud because ruining shirts is an expensive and not-fun hobby for me.
