I received the coat directly from Banana Republic's unopened stock in their logo black zippered cloth garment bag. The coat has been worn by this mannequin ONLY when it was removed from the garment bag for these photos. Using a steamer or hanging the coat in a steamy bathroom should remove the slight creasing,photos 4-5,caused from the garment bag. The Banana Republic hangar seen here and the logo zippered garment bag (not shown) are included.
Wearing Banana Republic's 'Pink Blush' coat guarantees you will be chic, warm and cozy thanks to its unparalleled softness and elegant drape,both byproducts of the Italian wool-blend fabric. Basics: Straight fit through the body. Notch collar. Double-breasted closure. 3 exterior pockets including a chest pocket. Center back vent (still tacked closed). Fully lined. Material:60% Wool, 25% Polyester, 10% Nylon, 5% Other Fibers.
Dyed wool blend fabrics may look uniform in color/texture but every fabric has millions of 'individual' fibers that aren't uniform either internally or externally because they had a different reaction to the chemicals used to bind,blend and dye them.
I examine every inch of every item I sell thoroughly and due to the color and materials used to make this fabric blend, I EXPECTED to find fibers that weren't uniformly "blended" and/or "dyed" in each of the 4 costs I purchased in this style/color and I did.
After several examinations,in various lighting settings, the types of 'variances' I found in fibers of the Extra Small coat are shown in photos 9-12;because of their size they can not be seen in the other photos.
PLEASE NOTE: It was EXTREMELY hard to capture images because the subtle variances can only be seen when the light,distance and angle is just right. These are the most detailed images I could produce after experimenting with the camera,lights and angles.
~Photo 9: Fiber impurities can produce "dye dots" and when examining the fabric in bright light I found a few random "pink dye dots". On the right is the magnified image of one on the front of the coat; the photo on the left was taken approximately 4 inches away, in a light that could capture it,if you can see it.
~Photo 10: Individual fibers that didn't "blend/dye" completely. On the right: magnified "hair like" fiber. Left: fiber can be seen on the sleeve above the highlight; photo was taken approx 5 inches away at a precise angle to insure the fiber is seen. If you are looking examining the coat REALLY CLOSELY as I did you will find other "hair like" fibers,some can be picked-up,brushed off or removed with a fingernail/tweezers.
~Photo 11: When I removed the coat from the bag and placed it on the mannequin this was the ONLY non-uniform fiber that caught my attention;the others I found after several examinations. In my opinion the fiber was damaged by the manufacturing process or was originally irregular.The top photo shows it magnified and to me it RESEMBLES a short pencil mark.
Bottom photo: approx 3 feet away; in this lighting and at this angle the fibers can be faintly seen above the highlight.
~Photo 12: Upper Right: magnified image of the only "dark teal dye spot",it isn't pinpoint like the "pink dye dots".
Bottom Right: if you study the fabric up close in certain lights you will find several random fibers with "faint teal" spots/dots, this is the largest. Also in this photo is another fiber resembling a "pencil mark". Left photo: taken approximately 8 inches away,the dark teal dot and the pencil mark are visible, the "faint teal" fibers are not.
~Photos 1-2 are the manufacturer's,they are shown for REFERENCE only to highlight the SILHOUETTE ONLY.
My goal is to ensure my buyers are thrilled when they receive their purchases and in order to make that happen I want to provide all the information they require to make a fully informed decision. I want you to be confident in your purchase if you would like photos from different distances or additional photos of other "hair-like" or "pencil mark" fibers PLEASE ask.
During the last 6 years I have completed over 950 transactions on Tradesy with the same number of happy customers, I want you to be one as well.
