Issue 1

Light, hard spots may appear on suede garment after dry cleaning which were not previously apparent. These spots are a residual effect due to ticks or other burrowing insect that attached themselves to the animal used to make the suede. These defects are covered by the garment manufactures with chalk or powder. These spots will generally do not accept the redyeing process and result in light spots.

Issue 2

Confirm that patch pockets lie perfectly flat against the cloth with no space between the pocket and the front of the garment. While holding the garment upright, make certain that the pocket doesn’t bulge or hang away from the front.  This is a sign of poor workmanship.

Issue 3

Hold up clothing to ensure that the garment lining follows the cut of the apparel. It should lay smoothly and not extend below the hemline. As a general rule, women’s slacks are fully lined, while men’s slacks are either unlined or lined only in front to just below the knees.

Issue 4

Unevenly matched leather sections are found in many suede and leather garments. Although the manufacturers generally try to match the skins, no two animals are alike. After dry cleaning, these shade differences may become more apparent. It should be noted, redyeing does not always correct these conditions.
