Info on Delayed Clam Digger Shipping
Oops...Shucking cramp! We are experiencing a small delay on all orders for Clam Digger crops due to an irregularity in our packaging process. Some style colours carry a smell due to the packaging, but it's only temporary and the pants will be just how you want them when they arrive.
To make sure everything is okay, we have decided to delay shipping on those styles so we can ensure the product is ready to wear as soon as you get it. (Thanks to Ms. J. for sharing her email)
It has been reported that some of the Clam Diggers people have tried on in the stores have a fishy odor. A comment on this blog told us A fishy smell in new clothes typically comes from a formaldehyde resin used to make clothes wrinkle-resistant (I never knew that).
Formaldehyde use in clothing is very common, according to my googling. The most usual side effect is skin irritation. Formaldehyde and other manufacturing chemcials are why we are supposed to launder new clothes before wearing (which I never do).
