(4) Resizing. Resize all items after complete repairs and cleaning have been accomplished, using the schedule of
sizes listed below. When garments do not correspond to original markings, obliterate the old marking and
legibly write or stamp the proper size with an indelible pencil or waterproof ink, near the old size. When the
measurements do not correspond to a size listed, relabel to nearest inseam and waist size. For example, if the
trouser measures 31 3/4 in the waist and 30 1/4 Inseam, mark in the waistband "32 x 30". Trousers in good
wearable condition should not be sent to salvage because the waist or Inseam measurements are off 1/2 Inch.
