Let me start with a little story. I've been a proud supporter of Jiberish for a long time now; I witnessed the company grow from a skier focused niche brand, to a company with street and fashion focused, forward thinking brand. A lot has changed since their inception. They even got featured in quite a few fashion sites, which I could've never imagined from their early years as a clothing company. Their grand cru line from this year speaks for themselves.
They are KILLING it.
And I love their clothes. Even my closets are filled with over half of their stuff.
Anyways, what I wanted to point out is that I've been recently disappointed with their quality control/checks. I mainly buy their clothes online, and expect a certain quality out of them, since I mostly pay around 100 for their button-downs. Now don't get me wrong, all of their apparels are quality stuff; I just wish that it wouldn't have some stuff missing when you get your package, and open it to wear it for the first time, and see this:
Do you see the missing thread? I cut it off so it wouldn't be too noticeable, but there was a two inch long thread just hanging from the stitches. This honestly isn't a huge problem, but its always a huge pain in the ass to iron the shirt since you have to align them correctly, because nothing is holding the cloth in line. And I saw this for the first time as I opened the shirt from its package.
I decided to make this thread, because I was really excited about today. Denver was freezing cold, and I was expecting my 'The Corton' Jacket to arrive. Once it did, I checked if everything was allright, and if it was worth the 250 I've worked my ass for to get this Jacket. Again, it's not a big deal but it had quite a few missing/misaligned stitches, etc.
(There are many more spots like this around the entire jacket)
I was quite disappointed when I spotted this for the first time. Again, quite a few threads were not aligned, and some longer ones where hanging out, which made me question about their quality control before it leaves their factory. You can call me picky, and tell me to stop caring about such little things. But think again, don't you expect some kind of quality when you drop this much of your hard earned dollars on a piece of clothing?
Anyways, what I wanted to say is that I'm not hugely satisfied with their quality control and wish that they would take more care of their proud work. I didn't write this thread because I wanted to call out Jiberish; I wrote this, because I care about their products, and because Im a huge fan of the brand. Regardless, I'll keep supporting the brand and hope that they'll do well in the coming years.
