Quality appears to be extremely variable. I've had one pair that has lasted from the start and others that have failed in various ways.

Burlingtons are supposed to be addressing QC issues - we'll wait and see!

One thing I would love to know, but have never had a straight answer when I've asked the question, is does the HA get a free replacement everytime we send a faulty garment back :?:

The combat trousers first. The buttons are poorly sewed on, the stitched seam falls apart, the hems fall down. Apart from that they`re better suited as a style for on-road.
The gore-tex lightweight jackets. Had a memo in weekly orders stating that velcro and waterproofing problems are a result of not following the washing instructions given. I have since pointed out a flaw in this statement. The velcro on my jacket is a mess, that`s the bits that haven`t already fallen off, that is. And my jacket hasn`t been washed yet, so no fabric conditioner or Bio washing powder can be blamed. After approaching a TM and pointing this out, I was told to inform my TM and wash it, so that it could be sent away to have press stud fasteners fitted. So, to put it bluntly, the washing excuse doesn`t wash with me. lol

I wonder what feedback, if any, that Burlington's have had, perhaps they need to be sent a link to this thread.

lol. Burlingtons have probably read it already. I have it on very good authority that Protec (old safety sign / consumables supplier) were regular viewers of NT as it was the only way the HA would actually tell them what they wanted!

Correct. I do believe The North Face and similar outdoor apparel merchants have marketed this 'feature' as a form of vent to prevent testicular overheating when engaged in strenuous outdoor activity, yet our beloved suppliers have incorporated them for us completely free of charge.

Lucky devils, aren't we? :1:

Ex-prison service. Double diamond was great. Alexander is poo.
Now work for HA. Burlington's IS learning no doubt. Yes seams are going etc. Burlington's if you are reading this, then there is a simple cheap solution. Stronger thread and double stitch. End of problem.

Alexander is also beginning to learn, only because the Prison Service will no longer pay them for uniform returned within the first month of issue, so I have been told by someone still with the service. Maybe we should do the same.

My wife has just had her sewing machine out restitching pockets, fastening velcro back on and re-doing the turnups on two pairs of trousers and they aren't even a month old yet! :x
