15 Ways to Recognize And Avoid Low Quality Clothing

15 Ways to Recognize And Avoid Low Quality Clothing

15 tips that will help you detect a poor-quality item right on the spot. When we buy a piece of clothing, we want to get a quality item. Unfortunately, it often happens that new clothes shrink or get torn after the first wash.

How to Select the Perfect Clothes for Your Body Shape 8:26

SUMMARY
– When buying clothes made of cotton, do this simple but very illustrative test: grab some fabric and squeeze it as tightly as you can in your fist for a few seconds. Then check if the fabric looks like a crumpled piece of paper.
– To check the thickness, hold the fabric up to a bright light. If you don’t see much through it, you are safe to buy it.
– A pull test can help you understand if you are holding a piece of junk in your hands, or if you have to pay for it right now feeling happy that you found it. So, try pulling stitched pieces apart.
– Make sure you buy clothes and accessories with metal zippers covered with a strap: they are the most reliable and long-lasting.
– Pants and skirts should have a hem of up to 2 inches. Blouses and shirts can do with a smaller one of about 1 inch. If there is no hem at all or it’s simply stitched, we do recommend buying this item.
– A quality item will always keep its shape. Take a stretchy part of a dress or a skirt, tug on it and then let it go.
– Zippers on dresses, skirts, or any other kinds of clothing should be equal in length, even and math in color.
– If you notice symptoms like this, don’t jump to the conclusion that you shouldn’t have skipped your gym. It’s possible that the manufacturer just saved money and didn’t use enough fabric.
– Natural fabrics, such as cotton, silk, and wool are strong and more durable than synthetics. However, 100% cotton can quickly shrink after washing.
– Examine fabric pattern and thread colors. If patterns don’t match and stitches are made with threads of different colors, it is a clear sign that this item was made in a hurry.
– When manufacturers make a fake or a low-quality item, they often don’t pay attention to little details. This is why you should always carefully examine buttons and buttonholes before buying an item.
– Good shirt and blouses must have a shoulder yoke. It makes the top look neat on you. Cheap items of clothes don’t have a yoke, so they don’t just look bad, but also uncomfortable to wear.
– If the coloring on the handles, straps, or fastenings looks faded or leaves marks on the folds, this is a clear sign of a low-quality item.
– When you buy a jacket or a coat, pay extra attention to the center back seam. The thing is your back probably doesn’t look completely flat, so if you want it to look beautiful, there must be a quality back seam.
– Even a very quick look at them can tell you a lot about how much effort has been put into producing the item. For example, if the pattern on the pocket doesn’t match the pattern on the rest of the item, it means that the production was sloppy, and they tried to save money on the materials.

  10. Looneytoons Tangents on December 19, 2021 at 3:01 pm

    Good tips, but all natural fibers is what we all need to wear, bc of all the nanotechnology and electromagnetic waves we live in. Synthetic stuff can turn us into antennas.

    The generic stock videos are super annoying. Why not use videos that show what your talking about?



  24. Сан Шингаля on December 19, 2021 at 3:20 pm

    Ask for the SGM of the cloths and sort of cotton,
    For cotton lovers Swizz cotton, Shinker cotton, Regular cotton.
    So ask the seller which cotton is it and this way you can predict the confortness of the clothes.

    In a study about which gym clothes trap the most body odor, cotton grew very few smelly germs, while Micrococci bacteria, a type of odiferous germ, swarms in soiled polyester shirts.

    Polyester is good at a wind and rain stopper. But I’d avoid having it to my skin.

    1:20 you know there is a fabric called "Muslin", worn by the kings and queens in the 19th century, especially Empress Josephine, and it is so translucent that it is compared to flowing water. Btw, Muslin’s thread count was 800-1200. 🇧🇩 🇧🇩



  33. Ahmad Salah on December 19, 2021 at 3:30 pm
