Three brands are named, whose jeans comply with quality standards
The Russian quality system (RSC quality) presented the results of a large-scale study of the quality of women’s jeans. Laboratory tests underwent 35 samples of popular stamps in Russia, including Levis, Uniqlo, Zara, Bershka, Diesel, Gloria Jeans, and DR.

Each sample was examined in 45 parameters of quality and safety, including the strength, stability of the color, the presence of toxic elements and formaldehyde, also laboratory experts were evaluated whether the composition of the fabric specified by the manufacturers on the label.
According to the results of the study, 27 products from 35 are recognized as high-quality, and 3 of them – reached increased requirements for the quality established by robust standards, and have improved properties (according to constructive features, manufacturer’s shrinkage requirements, stability painting to washing, tissue ability to absorb and hold moisture). Thus, high-quality jeans experts called Ostin, Uniqlo samples, Calvin Klein . However, the goods of these trademarks claim the Russian quality mark of the quality of these trademarks (high quality jeans were sewn in Vietnam, China and Tunisia).
Contrary to the conviction of many of our compatriots, the quality of jeans is not always determined by the price and the country in which they were sewn. So, many jeans, which have quite a democratic cost of up to 2,000 rubles, were no worse than expensive products for 10,000. A variety of jeans produced in China, depending on the specific brands, were recognized as high quality and low-quality goods.
In addition, among the studied samples there were no toxic or formaldehyde-containing products.
Despite the fact that most of the products turned out to be high-quality and safe, the study revealed seven products with labeling violations and one case – by safety indicator. So, deviations from the claimed composition were discovered in five of 35 products presented in the study. We are talking about jeans under your brands "Your", Baon, Finn Flare, Incity and Oodji. It is noteworthy that manufacturers of products under the trademarks "Your" and Incity surprised by the experts "reverse" substitution: in these products the actual composition contained more natural fibers than stated on the labeling. However, such seems to be pleasing inconsistency can indirectly indicate the lack of input control of materials.
On the labeling of jeans under the trademarks of Baon, F5 and Tom Farr, unfortunately, information about the manufacturer and manufacturer. Thus, consumer rights were violated for reliable and complete information about the product.
According to the results of the research, only in one sample violations of mandatory safety requirements were identified – a sample was detected with a painting, unstable to the effects of washing and distilled water. We are talking about jeans under the brand name LOVE REPUBLIC. A similar violation of the requirements of the Safety Technical Regulations suggests that the thing can "polish" when washing or painted the skin when it is raining.
As usual, in the Ranking Standard, which establishes voluntary increased requirements for the quality of products and giving the right to apply to it to the goods to claim the State Quality Sign, qualitative characteristics were included, which are not regulated by mandatory norms, but very necessary for consumers: for example, the abilities of the tissue to sit after processing , strength of products and ability to form cousins or scuffs during operation.
For example, to see, "will" sit "or stretch jeans after washing, experts of Roskatka have been put on samples in accordance with those modes that were recommended on the label. According to the results of comparative tests, the size of the sizes are recorded from nine samples – eight of them sat down, and some jeans stretched after washing. Among them were jeans that sat down not only in width (by 11.8%), but also in length (by 12%), that is, very noticeably decreased in the amount.
In the course of the study was checked, after how many "steps" on the surface of jeans could potentially form a loss. For materials with different density, various wear-resistance indicators were provided: for the most dense tissue, the rumpled set an indicator of six thousand steps, for the least dense – four thousand. Ten samples showed relatively low wear resistance, which means they will argue faster than most samples involved in the study.
Also jeans passed a powerful "strength test": they were susceptible to break load. There were four products that were not able to withstand it: the side or stepped seams were burst into them, or the fabric itself.
Detailed results of the study for each specific sample available on the portal of roskatkaya .
