  • What to look for: Key details like product type (e.g., "Men's Crew Neck T-Shirt"), main materials (e.g., "Cotton"), and special features (e.g., "Slim Fit").

Material and Composition

A deep dive into what the product is made of can tell you about its quality, durability, and care requirements.

  • What to look for: Percentage breakdowns (like "80% cotton, 20% polyester") and special fabric treatments or certifications (e.g., "Organic" or "UV Protection").

Sizing Information

Avoid sizing mishaps by understanding the measurements provided.

  • What to look for: Size charts, fit descriptions (like "runs large" or "true to size"), and model's size for reference.

Care Instructions

Make your items last by treating them right.

  • What to look for: Washing temperature recommendations, drying guidelines, and any other specific care details (e.g., "hand wash only" or "dry clean").

Product Features

Special features can set a product apart and make it suit your specific needs.

  • What to look for: Unique attributes such as "water-resistant," "stretch material," or "hidden pockets."

Product Imagery

While not textual, images are a crucial component of product descriptions.

  • What to look for: Multiple angles, close-ups for detailing, images of the product being worn (if applicable), and any video demonstrations.
