The hard part of combating wardrobing is that there are blurred lines within the process. Stores take returns of clothing that have not been worn. Stores take returns of clothing that were worn multiple times, but ended up being defective.
So why would it be so bad that someone wears clothing once, for only a few hours, and then returns it?
Just because you can justify it, doesn’t make it any better, or any more ethical to be wardrobing. Unfortunately, these blurred lines only make it easier for some people to rationalize what they are doing as acceptable.
Retailers do not have the luxury of entering into a discussion with these particular customers to convince them that wardrobing is bad. Any broach of the subject can create potentially an accusatory situation for a customer; and not every employee is going to be correct in their accusations.
The end result is that retailers need a better way to consistently uphold their return policies, while accommodating the legitimate customer return, and declining the fraudulent ones.
Wardrobing Tags are designed to help clear up any blurred lines that a seemingly generous return policy might have.
The Wardrobing Tags have the ability to hold a copy of the store’s return policy. They also provide a visual identifier for store employees to differentiate between a real customer and one who is wardrobing.
