    So I bought a nice reversible fall coat last month, and on 1 side all the seams are starting to bust. What.The.Fuck. Got the jacket on sale for 230, but still. I pay this much for a quality product, I expect some good shit. Gotta take some pictures and e-mail them, hopefully find my receipt and see what they do about it.

    That's kidna what i figured. Thankfully my gf's mom used to be a professional seamstress, but she said the way they designed the jacket it's gonna keep happening.

    From what i can tell yeah It's like they are sewed into each other to make an almost flawless seam.

    :/ , hmm that is not the same kind of chain stitch they use for denim. maybe i'm thinking double chain stitch.. i know for sure that the chain stitch they use for denim is a very very strong stitch. takes me forever to rip those seams apart.

    denim = double chain stitch

    this is a jacket and if it fell apart this easily its probably just a chain stitch

    agreed. here's a good link i found: http://supertalk.superfuture.com/showthread.php?t=10933&highlight=chainstitch

    Embroidery chainstitch - Not sure of it's origins, but it was used as long ago as the Shang Dynasty Chinese (around 1600-1050 BC). Beautiful stitch.
    Simple chainstitch - still used as a 'basting' or 'tacking' stitch, where pieces of fabric need to be joined only on temporary basis and then need to be easily separated.
    Double locking 'Jeans' Chainstitch - flexible and strong. Part of what makes jeans, jeans.

    i'm too much of a denim head.
