Are You a Picky Shopper?

Do you examine buttons, seams, hems, etc.?

It depends - I don't necessarily check for things like seams, but I do like to try things on before buying them since I never know what's going to fit me.

Who wants to pay full price for a broken item or wait in line to exchange it? Check it!

Ugh I always do, but something always goes wrong when I get it home

I'm very picky about every little detail, but for aesthetic reasons...

I thrift a lot and that inspection process has sort of made its way into my new clothes shopping, too. Check seams, try on to see if it itches, pull on buttons, look for fabric imperfections in different lighting if silk, etc. :)

Wow - I do this and more when I buy clothing. I examine the seams, buttons, zippers etc. I tug on the whole item and even check the label to look at the materials and how it should be washed. Ppl always look at me funny but I don't care. I am investing in the clothing so I just want to know how quality the item is/isn't...

A couple factors go into it, but basically, if I'm not prepared to replace buttons/zips on the piece of clothing/neaten the hem it myself, then I check as much as I can.

I buy a lot of thrift and vintage, so inspection is a must.

Depends on the price of the garment, but usually I pull on the buttons a little and zip up and down a couple times if its a pricey piece.
