15 Ways to Recognize And Avoid Low Quality Clothing

8963 ratings | 499352 views
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. TIMESTAMPS Check the quality of cotton by squeezing it 0:40 Hold the fabric up to a bright light 1:09 Pull the seams to see the gaps 1:33 Avoid open zippers 2:02 Check the hem 2:24 Give fabric a tug 2:53 Make sure the zipper matches in length 3:13 Well-cut 3:26 Pay attention to the label 4:09 Make sure the seams and threads match Check buttons and buttonholes 5:07 Check if it has a yoke 6:17 Look at the coloring of the folds 6:42 A center back seam 7:08 Patterns matchup 7:33 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.

I once saw synthetic leather men's belts at a mall. Its good that I didn't buy them because I discovered that the surface of the belts got scratched easily by my thumbnail! It's good no one was looking because I damaged quite a number that was on display.

Some poor quality clothing you will find a sticker on it. This sticker is small and sometime has an arrow on it. It points to an error or flaw in the fabric. Could be a stitch or even just a spot where the colour is slightly different. But it's always means it's pointing at something. Sticker typical is found inside layer and not the outside where the sticker would be visible.

I was watching a episode of forensic files and saw a case with the cheap shirt and how the pocket didn’t match the rest of the pattern. If a man tried to talk to me and the pattern doesn’t match it drives me crazy now😂😂 dude get a quality shirt lol
Daniel Roy (10 months ago)
I agree with the other things you say, but what you said about the the different colours of stiching is just wrong, that could be part of the design.

How to spot a fake DVD or CD. Check that the holograms are visible on the front of the Disk and back inner ring. The front should have the logo the copyright information, number that matches up with the spine. If it is blue or purple and doesn't have the hologram on the inner ring it will be a fake. Exception to this rule is PlayStation games or console game that are meant to have a blue back disk but they should still have the inner ring of the consoles logo or the number matching the spine. Also it should have a shiny logo hologram on the front. Still not sure hold the case to the light see if it has dots if it has it may be printed check the case careful if you find it hard to see or read certain details on the back of the case. Or it seems blurred or a different colour then it is most likely a fake. Hope these help.

Does that *T H I C C N E S S* test work on girls?

1) there is a specific number of stitch required, 12-20 per inch are the best.2) size of stitch, smaller stitch is better and will hold tabrics better. 3) high quality products have bartack in it. Thats the thick stitch at the end of zippers or in each belt loop. 4) all rtw are packed and sold for its best look, chemicals and all in it. 5)beware of sale items when a product has just been released, most sale items are out of season. 6) fold any item vertically. It should always have a symmetry. And to find a perfect fit, make sure the shoulder seam rest 45 degrees on your shoulders, not below it as it will look sloppy and not before it as it will look too tight. 7) inspect for holes or snags, and before packing, make the sales rep inspect it as well. 8) check the seams underneath if the color will match. For max produced items, there is a specific color combination for top and bottom thread used on seams..

Might want to cover shoes. If the toes curl up on dress shoes, skip them. A sole that’s properly designed will sit flat from the heel to the tip of the toe. No more clown shoes.
