The 10 Most Overrated Clothing Details

"Handmade"

Everything is handmade bro. There are no magical, mystical machines that pour out jeans, button downs, and suit jackets with ease. Whether it's a Japanese artisan painstakingly sewing together a pair of jeans, or an Indian factory worker popping out T-shirt after T-shirt like Tic-Tacs, all clothing is handmade. Of course, some is better made than others, but anyone who tries to say that something costs more because of "hand-finished details" is kind of missing the point. Yes, better work costs more money, as does making sure the people who make what you consume get paid a living wage... but "made by hand" isn't a luxury, it's the stark reality of the clothing industry.
