Quality Comparison & Rating Chart

The below ratings are my current standards. These ratings are 100% based on my personal opinion and experience. The list of stores in some of the sections may be updated at any time. There will be some overlap as many stores carry clothing of varying quality.

1 Star – Terrible and unwearable

This is clothing that is made of INCREDIBLY poor-quality materials and is EXTREMELY poorly/cheaply constructed overall.

Note: I would NEVER wear/keep any clothing in this quality category.

1.5 Stars – Bad but wearable

This is clothing that is made of INCREDIBLY poor-quality materials and may be somewhat poorly/cheaply constructed.

Note: Clothing in this quality category is ‘wearable’. Although, I am unlikely to keep any clothing in this quality category.

2 Stars – Mediocre

This is the lowest-quality clothing you would find at a major clothing brand with retail locations. Clothing in this category is made of cheap materials and may be somewhat poorly/cheaply constructed.

  • Ross (clearance rack)
  • Kohl’s (clearance rack)
  • Forever 21

Note: I would only wear/keep clothing in this quality category if it were priced cheaply.
