This is even worse than my 6% spandex, 18% poly Levi’s.
They have a thick skin to call that a Linen blend…
Tour Guide: “And each paper contains a certain percentage of recycled paper.”
Lisa Simpson: “What percentage is that?
Tour Guide: “Zero. Zero is a percent, isn’t it?”
That has to be a mistake… Maybe the Linen and Poly should be switched? I am no lawyer, but I think they have to have something like 40% of a material to advertise it as such. I think I got that from the combat gent thread when people were talking about the ‘Super 140s wool’ they used.
I feel like they should be forced to call it lynen, like the chicken wings that aren’t wings are called wyngz.
> I am no lawyer, but I think they have to have something like 40% of a material to advertise it as such.
To advertise it as a blend? I doubt it. Loads of stores do that, especially with cashmere.
Uniqlo, for example, advertises their 10% cashmere sweaters as “cotton cashmere.” You’ll find yarn companies advertising their ~10% cashmere yarns as “cashmere blends.”
What’s even more frightening is the 4 and 5 star reviews.
But it has a polka dot lining!
Good point. I guess CG was calling it a Super 140s wool suit. Anyway… 3% linen? Do you guys really think this is right though?
Oh wow, they’ve got balls
Hey man, toss me my lynen jacket. I need get some Cheez Whiz and krab.
It’s a blend all right.
Right? No. Acceptable to call it what it is (a linen blend)? Yes. Always read the label if you’re interested in what something’s made of (as I am). Unfortunately, the masses don’t seem to care because they see the label, perceive quality, and buy. Dubious example is Lauren for Ralph Lauren.
Maybe it is linen in strategic places, like under the arms for ventilation.
hot, sweaty balls.
because they can’t breathe under all that poly.
It’s probably 5 stars to those who never purchased a jacket before. Gotta remember these are Perry Ellis reviews. I doubt more than half of those reviewing this even read the fiber content or care about the construction of the jacket.
A thick polyester skin, which we all know doesn’t breathe worth a dime.
That was me. ‘Cause the polka dot lining…
Ooph. That’s harsh.
Also, is it just me, or is that an awfully high button stance for a two button jacket?
So i guess the question we should ask is… Will It Blend?
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_It_Blend%3F for those who don’t know what that’s about)
or the fried calamari thats really pig anus.
I believe the pertinent portion is in section 70b.
Nice. I was thinking about that earlier.
I think at this point in the game, the Perry Ellis brand has been coasting towards retirement, selling lots of plastic in just about everything.
I just tossed a PE reversible belt that claimed to be “genuine leather on bonded leather”. The brown “leather” side was just rubberized paint, and it started to peel away from the rubberish core.
The first thing I do when looking over a piece of clothing I’m interested in, is to pull out the contents tag to see if it’s worth further consideration.
Very often – but not *always* (JCF suiting is a notable exception), skimping on the materials indicates overall quality not there.
well it is 70 bucks.So its kind of a buyer beware situation. Obviously a cheap money grab. But what can you do.
That’s just ridiculous. I mean comeon.
At what point are you willing to admit that your sandwich made of 3% ham and 97% poo, is no longer a ham sandwich?
Yes it is…the material you see pulling near the top button is his carotid artery getting ready to blow.
Seriously….i just did a spit take. Fabulous quote.
that is some bullshit
Well.. that’s pretty ridiculous. It could almost count as misrepresentation, but at least it looks it, if you’re paying attention.
