How to recognize poor vs. good quality in clothes (in 5 points) | Justine Leconte

This video explains how to spot (cheap) bad quality clothing and what high quality would look like. You don’t need to be a fashion designer to learn how to recognize poor quality!
I tackle the following 5 points:
– Good fit / Good cut
– Colors / Dyeing
– Prints / Appliqués / Jacquards
– Fabrics / fibers
– Sewing quality / Stitching / Threads

Any question? Comment below.

New videos: Wednesday 5pm & Sunday 12pm (Paris/Berlin time).

Take care!



– The core 4 natural ones: cotton, silk, linen and wool.
– The “new” natural ones (with better properties, derived from natural materials): modal (better than cotton), viscose (made from wood), tencel (made from bamboo).
– The most common synthetic ones: acetate (this one is old and not breathable, stay away!), rayon (a substitute for silk), nylon, acrylic (a substitute for wool), polyamid, elathane (great to make e.g. a cotton fabric or denim fabric bounce back after you have moved!)

    Until now I though viscose was synthetic because…. it sounded like one so i was scared to buy viscose tops due to my not really happy memories with synthetic fabrics.
    This knowledge will change my life

    Very good video but WHERE can I buy good quality fashion ??

    I've shown your videos to my friend and we agreed that buying good quality clothing is a better option… but here's a question: where? What are some of the brands or manufacturers you'd recommend? Sometimes, even a name that used to stand for quality ends up being so commercialized that a consumer is paying for the name more than actual quality. We've gone over what's available to us in Slovenia and Austria, and concluded there's very few options, and even those usually have styles that don't fit us. I don't mind paying more for a piece of clothing if I can be sure it will stay the way it's meant to even after wear and wash, but I really haven't a clue and I've sometimes paid more only to still have to contend with things that were just not made to last.

    Thank you so much ! Now I know I'm not crazy. my boyfriend thought I was crazy for spending good money on clothes and that i was picky, because i pay attention to fabric , stitching etc. I have gotten to the point that I just want to make my own clothes and underwear. Even asked my mom for a sweing machine for my birthday .
    I have even saved a bunch if my grate grandmother's clothes that are amazing so when I get my machine fit it to my size.

    Hi Justine! Is it possible that some cotton garments don't shrink right away but with time? I have several shirts that now look significantly shorter than when I first bought them, years ago, so that made me wonder. Thanks for this video, it's very informative!

    Fantastic video, @JustineLeconteofficiel ! Chalk full of tons of little gems to consider when shopping, and keeping a collection all around! 🙂

    You also have an incredible collection of clothes you showed, and I kinda can't believe there's more posts about that a little 😉 out of curiosity (and I hope you don't mind me asking, where did you get your skirt at 8:44? It's magnificent and so futuristic 😀

    I may be incorrect. I often am. But I would love to hear opinions. I learn by listening. Rayon is wood fiber, no? With some synthetic elements. It actually, in my experience baths quite wee and hangs well. Am I mistaken?

    To me viscose and rayon are same. Hate both. Shrinks, loses shapes, and creases. This is a really cheap fabric so companies make a ton of money on this, but I end up throwing it out because it's just horrible. 🙁 I prefer cotton and modal. Thanks for the video.

    I hate when I find a beautiful dress but it's lined with acetate. I can't buy it because the lining is so uncomfortable.

    I enjoyed this. In Britain, it's getting harder and harder to buy cotton, linen or wool clothing. Everything is now polyester or nylon blends. I used to love the White Stuff because a lot of their clothes were natural fibres. Now, most of their clothes are 50% polyester or nylon or acrylic. I don't like the feel of them on my skin.

    I m surprised u did not talk about the most easily found for comparing good n bad quality garment: if the the garment is symmetric.

    It is highly requested to have both length on left n right draps balance. Others r like pocket placement, pattern (e.g. Checks or strips on seams n even in the facing n lining).

    Other workmanship u can talk about is the waving on hem when lay flat on table, the cracking of seam n stitches when stretch, the puking on seams (which is somehow a desire for demon appearance)………..

    Appearance is the first thing for judging the garment. Then colour, workmanship, material n performance.

    About the fibres, not all synthetics are bad……they have good features like high colour maintenance, strength to tackle the high tension in high speed fabric making process (weaving or knitting, jacquard), light weight, high yield, diversity.

    Like most sports brand have their product development with synthetic fabric n many high performance like quick dry, thermal, water repellent, were made for professional n outdoor purposes. In certain countries with extreme environment, they are needed.
