Description of Garment:
Orange Jacket with Storm System© insulating membrane.
Manufacturer: Giorgio Armani Classico
Care Label Instructions: Dryclean only.
Problem: This jacket contains an insulating membrane that is bonded to the back of the fabric. This process is named Storm System©. The membrane may shrivel and (or) separate from the face fabric when drycleaned as instructed by the care label.
Responsibility: The manufacturer's. The bonded membrane failed when drycleaned in accordance with the care label instructions. This resulted in the puckering and distortion of the face fabric.
Recommendation: This type of membrane has a history of failure in both perchloroethylene and hydrocarbon solvents. If this garment proves to be unserviceable when drycleaned according to the care label instructions, it should be returned to the place of purchase.
Drycleaner: Explain the potential serviceability issue concerning this garment. Since this jacket may not be able to withstand the drycleaning process, a signed release of liability must be obtained prior to its acceptance for processing.
The NCA's Garment Analysis Laboratory examines thousands of garments every year for serviceability and FTC care labeling accuracy. The featured garment is a recurring item received for evaluation and, in testing, has failed to meet minimum industry standards. We have included the name or trade name of the fabric, the manufacturer, the RN number, if available, and a brief description of the problem.
