Comme des Garcons Shirt
Posted on Friday, February 29th
Description of Garment:
Blue and White Striped Blouse w/ Multicolored Fabric Patches.
Manufacturer: Comme des Garcons
RN#: Not Available
Care Label Instructions: " Dry Clean Only"
Problem: When drycleaned in hydrocarbon solvent, the maroon dyestuffs from the patches became fugitive and transferred onto the white portion of the blouse, causing discolorations that cannot be corrected.
Responsibility: The manufacturer's. This blouse proved to be unserviceable when drycleaned in accordance with its care label instructions.
Recommendation: If this garment fails when drycleaned as instructed by the care label, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.
Drycleaner: Since there may be a potential serviceability issue concerning this blouse, we suggest that a signed release of liability should be obtained prior to it's acceptance for processing. Although we have no data as to the serviceability of this blouse in alternative solvents, we are of the opinion that the same type of damage will occur if drycleaned in perchloroethylene.
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.
