Clothing should never be bought based on a name or label. There are
so many variables in clothing production, source of manufacture, fabric, interfacing, lining, padding, thread, buttons, styling, fit and longevity.
Names and labels does not denote quality, especially when the price is too good to be true. Something has got to give and normally it is taking short cuts in fabrics, production, etc.
Before purchase, do your homework! Know and understand what you are getting. There are differences. Don’t base an apparel purchase on the marketing of a garment, make it on quality, value and longevity. A core essential wardrobe consists of garments that last, mix-n-match, dress up and down and be ready on a moments notice for anything that comes up. You will have a better wardrobe over time, spend less and one that will give you a good return on your investment.
It is best to take your time and base your decision on good information not after the Caboose passes by. Be pro-active and prevent buyer’s remorse!

It is important to have enough clothing to get through the week. Clothing and other items in the Wardrobe were not made or designed to worn everyday or every other day. Simply put, it means there isn’t enough clothing in the Wardrobe. Even the best of quality garments wear out prematurely because of overwear.
Clothing can be worn once or twice a week at best anything else shortens the life of the garment. Not having enough clothing will
actually increase how much is spent in the Closet. Continuous washing and dry cleaning will eventually wear out the fabrics, linings, etc.
By cutting down the number of wearings and cleanings will advance the life of the wardrobe and wind up spending less.

Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 shocked our Nation to its core, the unthinkable happened. It galvanized our great nation together like no other event in history. The “Greatest Generation” was recognized for all they endured on two warfronts and the sacrifices at home.
The Nation was pinned on its heels, shocked and thus it organized and assembled all its might. Its mission was fight until our enemies were defeated. Democracy
paid a heavy price, but for the United States, it has been and always will be worth it. It is still the greatest nation on earth! We thank our United States Military for all they have done and all they do in providing the blanket of freedom! We our grateful for their sacrifice and for their service to our great nation!

It use to be giving gifts were quality, not so much today. Many of the trusted brands meant their merchandise was credible and would last. Today most of these brand names and designers are out of business and their labels were sold. Names are just names and haven’t been in business for years. Much of this merchandise is never sold at regular price only sale prices.
Be wary of this during the holidays as so much of the discounted apparel is good for one thing, cheap price. Here is a good litmus test too know if you have a good garment: Fabric is smooth, not rough or coarse. Doesn’t wrinkle when you squeeze it, stitches are tight, not porous and when you hold the garment up in the light you can’t see through the fabric like plastic wrap.
There is not a lot of difference in price between a cheap and quality garment, but a world of difference in how it is made, fit and how long it will last. This is the true cost of merchandise, in the end the quality garment will be around long after the holidays are over.

Whether dress is a Suit or not, look like a professional, consistently. Clothing should be made of high performance fabrics and quality linings, interfacings, padding, thread and buttons so garments make a compelling statement and will look great over time. Other attributes of quality garments they don’t break down, stay and look fresh throughout the day.
Wardrobe items should fit well, clean, no body order, no stains or tears. To look like a professional, your clothing needs to look like it is in its “A” game. Your clothing and image should meet and exceed the expectations of those who you work with and clients.
Accessories should polish off your outfit, not the center of attention. Grooming and Hygiene shows how you sweat the small details, including well manicured fingernails, no bushy necks or globs of hair growing out of the ear lobes or nostrils.
Business is not casual, for some companies it is the work spaces they create. Clothing should never be transparent where undergarments should through or defined. Your look should not be short, tight or revealing. If you are management, look like management!
