Tell-Tale Areas to Check Before You Buy New Clothes

cashmere-holes_300Just because a store is selling something new, it doesn’t mean that the item is in perfect condition. Sometimes clothing start to fall apart from the wear-and-tear of being tried on over and over again by other shoppers. The next time you’re about to purchase a garment, check these high-stress points that often get damaged:

• Holes in underarms
• Torn tops of pleats
• A stretched neckline
• Threads dangling from buttons and buttonholes
• Pulled seams at the waistband

Get more insight on how to shop smarter.

    For this reason I’d rather buy really well made garments second hand than buy cheap garments new.

    Sometimes the poor condition is just from poor construction and shoddy production. If something is frayed just from being tried on, I don’t hold much hope for it lasting very long.

    in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs
    I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be interesting to read through articles from other writers and use something
    from other websites.
