Jhane Barnes Menswear recommends ABC in Care Label

Dec '06
In the fall of 2006, high-end men's designer Jhane Barnes released a line of suits along with the rest of her high-quality apparel. There was, however, a point of distinction – inside of each care label read the statement: “We suggest a dry cleaner certified by America's Best Cleaners (ABC)” along with the web site name.

From an industry often loath to acknowledge the mere existence of dry cleaners, it is almost unthinkable to see such a strong manufacturer's recommendation. Yet Jhane Barnes Menswear “feels that because we use the finest fabrics coupled with the best type of construction and trim in the manufacture of their suits, it is important that the care of quality-conscious dry cleaners be employed.”

Jhane Barnes gravitated to America's Best Cleaners (ABC) based on its independent Quality Management Certification, backed by the world-renowned Hohenstein Institutes of Bonneigham, Germany.

America's Best Cleaners has worked with other such designers and manufacturers, from established lines like Willy Bogner Outerwear and Ike Behar, whose sales force has been instructed to refer their clients to one of America's Best Cleaners, to hot new leather jacket company Kaptain Bubble, from testing garments to garment care advice.

Fabric specialists from Brooks Brothers have attended meetings and seminars on new environmentally safe methods of cleaning.

Most recently, representatives from certified affiliates took an 11-day tour of several Italian factories, where lines and textiles for such names as Zegna, Agnona, Canali, Brioni, and Corneliani are constructed, in order to better familiarize themselves with the complexities and ingenuities of quality garments and fabrics.

The union of the garment industry and garment care industry is unique: Maddalena Di Giovacchino of Brioni said that this was the largest group ever to tour their facility, let alone of dry cleaners.

Certification is contingent on strict criteria in accordance with the Hohenstein's RAL RG 990 standards.
