Yves Saint Laurent

 

Description of Garment:

 White Shirt

Manufacturer: Yves Saint Laurent

RN#: Not available

Care Label Instructions: Machine Wash Cold, Tumble Dry Low, Dry Clean

Problem: This fabric contains spandex. When this shirt was drycleaned as instructed by the care label, relaxation shrinkage took place.

Responsibility: The manufacturer. Fabrics that contain spandex are often unintentionally over-stretched during the weaving process. The fabric returns to its pre-stretched dimensions after it's initial processing. This is known as relaxation shrinkage.

Recommendation: If this shirt shrinks when processed in accordance with its care label nstructions, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.

Drycleaner/ Wetcleaner: Explain the potential serviceability issues to the customer. Since this garment may prove to be unserviceable, we suggest that a signed release of liability be obtained prior to it's 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.
