Do you get tired of clothes that seem to fade or rip apart after wearing them just a few times? If so, change your shopping habits and buy quality clothing that is manufactured to last for more than one season.
Don’t purchase clothes with plastic zippers. These zippers are known to go off track. Purchase quality clothing with metal zippers instead. Reduce stress and stop fighting with plastic zippers.
How can you tell if your clothing choices were made with quality in mind? If you see clothes that are sold with spare buttons or thread, this means that the designer expected the clothing to last long enough to need a few repairs in the future. The designer wanted you to have the essential items needed to make these repairs.
Unfortunately, synthetic fabrics tend to pill and need more costly trips to the dry cleaners. Thus, try to purchase quality clothing made with natural fibers such as cashmere, silk, wool, cotton or linen. These clothes will look great after numerous washes.
Also, do not buy a garment without inspecting the stitching first. Make sure it was sewn with quality in mind. Don’t make a purchase if it has missed or imperfect stitches, or it looks like it will unravel in the future. Try to pull the garment apart along the seams. Does the fabric hold together? If not, this is not quality clothing. Do not buy it.
