Fun with the English language – Diesel t-shirt fabric care

I recently purchased a Diesel T-shirt from Nordstrom. It’s a nice printed T so I wanted to be careful when washing it. Reading the fabric care instructions was both confusing and funny.

It seems I can only wear the shirt inside:

EXPOSED TO EXTREME
AMOUNTS
OF SUNLIGHT COLOR
MAY FADE

And the washing instructions:

THIS GARMENT HAS BEEN TREATED IN
ORDER TO GIVE THE FABRIC A
PARTICULAR APPEARANCE AND SPECIAL
CHARACTERISTICS, EXPERIENCE SHOWS
THAT HOMOGENEITY CANNOT BE
GUARANTEED.
THEREFORE IS ABSOLUTELY NATURAL
THAT THE GARMENTS VARY IN
APPARANCE BETWEEN EACH OTHER,
AND VARY IN APPARENCE IN THE TIME. IT
IS ADVISABLE TO WASH THIS GARMENT
SEPARATELY AND NOT EXPOST TO THE
SUNLIGHT AS THERE COULD BE
VARIATION IN COLOR.
THIS PARTICULAR TREATMENT MAKES
THE COLOR NOT STILL
PAY ATTENTION TO THE MATCHING WITH
WHITE GARMENTS

What’s the deal with the crazy line breaks too? Too funny 🙂

    haha that’s the longest care tag i’ve ever seen. all it says is we’re not responsible for fading and wash colors and whites separately.
