Key Features Of Garment Construction

The price of any garment is determined by its quality. Make no excuses. It doesn"t matter who made the garment and where it was made. Quality clothing last longer and inferior quality can break down fast in comparison to normal wear and tear.

Things to look for on quality garments

Buttons - Quality clothing has quality buttons that are durable or may be fabric-covered.
Buttonholes - Quality buttonholes are signs of quality clothing.
Seams - Quality garments are made of hand-finished seams. Today, seams can be made to look almost as if they were made by hands by more advanced electronic and computerized sewing machines. Wide seams are good signs of good-quality garments. Very narrow seams are signs of poor-quality garment.
Trim - Trim must show a well-detailed workmanship.
Belt - Cardboard or soft plastic used as stiffeners are signs of poor-quality garment.
Hem - Hem should be wide and hand sewn. Today, seams can be made to look almost as if they were made by hands by more advanced electronic and computerized sewing machines.
Linings - Hand stitched linings create a better flowing fit. Today, seams can be made to look almost as if they were made by hands by more advanced electronic and computerized sewing machines.

Things to remember:

Buy always the best quality that you can afford.
Don"t ignore workmanship.
Make sure you have the poise to carry through whatever you wear.
Too tight clothing is not comfortable even if it looks extremely well on you.
Too tight clothing tends to break fast.
Check for stretching of the garment. Elasticity must be checked before buying.
Watch out for fabrics that may shrink, expand or discolor.

Fabrics that may shrink or expand: Cotton, Linen, Rayon
Fabrics that may discolor or bleed: Silk, cotton, linen
