7 tricks to recognize if a garment is of good quality

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

When putting together a basic wardrobe with timeless pieces that can be worn on different occasions, it is essential to choose garments of good quality that can withstand use and successive washes.

But, how to recognize them? How to know if what you want to buy is worth it? Pay attention to these simple tricks:

Hold the garment up to the light. The more transparent the fabric, the lower the quality.

The wrinkle test. Squeeze the fabric for a few seconds and then let it go. Unless it’s linen, if the garment remains wrinkled, it’s better to leave it.

Pay attention to zippers. A good quality garment has a hidden, well-finished zipper that matches the color of the fabric.

Check the seams. Look at the finishing of collars, cuffs, and hems. The tighter the seam, the better.

Check the labels. Check how the fabric is composed. The percentage of natural fibers such as cotton, wool, or silk should be higher than that of synthetic fibers.

Check buttons and buttonholes. If they are loose or the seams are not neat, it is not a good sign.

Be suspicious if the price is too low. A garment of good material and craftsmanship is usually more expensive due to the materials it is made of.
