    I just got home with a bunch of new suits from Syms and nearly every one has a pinhole in the back where they stuck the alarm sensor....

    What a travesty!!

    I don't want suits with a hole in them....What a stupid way to ruin beautiful suits.

    I suppose if i would have the back taken in any it would probably get cut out, but if not, it's there....

    Ugh

    Smart people put the pins through the seams. The people working at Syms are generally not the brightest bulbs in the shed.

    You can try to iron the hole away.

    yeah that does seem annoying. There is no fix for that either unless you take it in.

    Some holes are in the seam, but if i don't take it in won't it always be there? so why is in the seam better?

    They should put it through button holes [​IMG]
    All these dumb companies, who spend money on "loss prevention" type deals, which end up costing them more money, and more headache.
    Sensors are useless and end up being way more hassle than any good it does. Not only do they poke holes everywhere, the associates often time have problems removing stuck and jammed sensors, causing damage to the clothes -_-. Or theres always bound to be forgotten sensors on objects, the people have to go back to have removed. And having a cell phone or something set the alarms off and everyone looks at you like you stole something even though you didn't.

    I work for a company that sells mens suits and we refuse to put those damned things into our suits. Unfortunately it means that sometimes we do lose a few suits too. But I have seen too many good suits ruined from someone carelessly spearing those alarms into them.

    Lancing the buttonhole is a good idea though. What about under the collar?

    Those holes will go away. You can probably rub them out with your fingers. Chill.

    There were a few HF suits at SYMS I would have picked up but since they jacked their prices up to compensate for lower spending I passed.

    Yep - I doubt that the threads are cut/broken. Just need to rub them back in place. Dare I say, apply a little steam? [​IMG]
