Domestic Production Quality Standards

Here at “Gil Sewing” we pride ourselves on our quality assurance standards. We’re certified by the DOD for final audit testing and have achieved a less than 2.5AQL with all of our customers, including the Naval Center for Research and Testing. We not only take care of final garment auditing before the order ships, but we also do in-process auditing at every operation to make sure that no garment goes to the next stage of production with
a flaw.

In our domestic production, our quality audit starts in the cutting room where each roll of fabric is laid out and inspected before cutting begins. If
we find fabric flaws we immediately notify both our customers and the mills. Once cut and fused, our sewing operators are trained to look for flaws like missed stitches, or wrong seam allowances. After sewing and once the garment is pressed and finished our trained, certified auditors go through measurements, specs, and construction of the garment again, to make sure your garment is perfect.


Overseas partner factory quality standards

We have taken these standards and applied them to our overseas production program sourcing as well. Our overseas partner factories understand that we have a perfect reputation to uphold and they’ve made a huge effort to ensure our quality standards are met.

With each overseas order, our Chicago quality auditors travel to the overseas manufacturer several times. Once during production to make sure all specifications and quality standards are followed, and a second time before shipping, to inspect the finished garments before they’re shipped back to the U.S.

With the quality standards that we’ve accomplished domestically and overseas, you can be sure that your garments will get the most thorough quality inspections. This is the reason why our domestic customers have trusted “Gil Sewing”  to take care of their garment orders overseas, as well.
