After a friend’s recent college graduation ceremony, one of the grads started talking about how she is always prepared for job interviews because she buys a new outfit for each interview and then returns it. Basically she was admitting to wardrobing retail to make herself look better (and more qualified) for a job interview.
She talked about how the hardest item to return was shoes. When you wear them outside, they immediately begin to show wear on the soles- retailers look for that at the returns desk. This is one of the biggest reasons why retailers don’t use Alpha Shark Tags on shoes to prevent wardrobing.
Everything else was pretty easy to return. She figured out that if a suit jacket has the price tag on the sleeve she could bend the plastic on the attachment and slide it carefully through the hole in the price tag. Instead of clipping the plastic piece, she pushes it back inside the sleeve for the interview.
If she wears a jacket then it will hide any tags that are in her shirt, which means she does not have to even try and take those tags off.
After she is done, she bends the plastic end back through the hole of the price tag. By doing this, the employer never sees the evidence of her scheme, and the retailer that she is returning the outfit to never suspects her of wardrobing because the tag is still attached.
