Quality clothing, what to look for

When buying clothes many people want to check that the garments that they are buying are good quality and made to last so it’s important to know what to look for to allow you to be able to quality check your clothes successfully.

Most clothes when new look and feel great however poor quality goods will quickly deteriorate after wearing and washing leaving them unwearable very quickly.

The first thing to check with an item is the quality of the fabric, cheaper synthetics will often bobble quickly or get loose threads and after washing won’t keep their shape.

The next thing to check would be the stitching, generally around the hems and seams, gently pull at the seams and ensure that there is no weakness or splits and visually check the hems to check the stitching is neat and not frayed at all.

The fit of the garment will also give you an idea as to the quality of the garment as poorly made items will often not be true to normal sizes and any two items of the same size will vary in shape and fit.

If you are paying more for an item it is fair to expect a higher quality from that item and as such the item should last longer and look newer for longer, never be put off by returning an item that you find to be of inferior quality as under the sales of goods act this is your right as a buyer.
