I'm drawn to this image. Something about good seams really gets me going. Whenever you're shopping, check the seams, especially on jackets and blazers. It's the first place fast fashion cuts corners to reduce costs. It's an industry insider's dirty little secret that damaged product ie ripped seams and poor construction, can be sold easily in the US because what that consumer seeks most often is a 'deal'. In Europe, it would sell at deep discounts, maybe. And in China and Japan you couldn't give it away for free. Don't be a sucker, any crazy stitches or rips, set it down gently and back away from the rack.
