    Interesting. What prompted these people to have their suits re-tested??

    I find it hard to believe that an accredited lab didn’t check the collar. It’s the collar padding and shoulder pads (in men’s jackets, at least) which present the greatest opportunities for Shatnez, or for what passes as shatnez these days.
