Introduction

This manual is intended to assist manufacturers in producing first quality merchandise for our Haband customers. The guidelines following cannot only help spot and reject defective items, but more importantly they can be used to identify production operations that require special attention to reduce the number of defects in future production.

Haband requires that all items manufactured for Haband be first quality, whether they’re expensive top-of-the-line, mid-priced, or budget-priced merchandise. To Haband, price difference is based on cost of materials and labor to produce the merchandise.

Haband will work with our suppliers to help ensure that our customers receive first quality products.

If we can help you in any way with the procedures described in this manual, please contact our Quality Control Department at (973) 942-2600.

How To Measure

1. All measurements are to be taken as specified in this manual.

2. Non-stretch fiberglass or metal tape measures are to be used.

3. All measurements will have a code. Measurements with code numbers beginning with the letter “S” are taken on the single. (Measurement is what the tape reads.)

Measurements beginning with the letter “D” are to be doubled.

4. Garments are to be laid on a flat surface when measurements are taken, with buttons, snaps, zippers and all other closures fully closed.

5. You must receive written authorization from Haband to change any Haband policy.
