Got to love howies, they'd shine sh1t if they could, put a lifestyle story on its side then stick it ontop of a mini skateboard.
Anyone else got an email from Howies b/s merchants?
£225 for a pair of Jeans? FFS you can buy a car for that.
Beyond the b/s (which I like), the pricing (which is ok), virtually all the clothes I've had from them have shrunk. I've now reached the end of 2.5 relationship with howies. The stuff I did really like, their regular jeans, they've changed the fit Jumpers have been ok tho'.
"Dear oh dear, it really saddens me to see people write rubbish about not being sent a catalogue and saving a tree. Trees are a crop."
That's true, but it's not good news for the environment. What happens is that good land, rich in habitats is cleared to make way for monoculture tree cropping. Heavy duty machinery, fertilisers and preservatives are used in abundance. The trees have to be felled, processed, chipped, chemically or mechanically digested and only then turned into paper. All of this uses a huge amount of energy and resource, and is damaging to the environment.
Of course, recycling paper also requires lots of resources, but much less than virgin paper, and it saves on landfill.
So the claim that paper companies make (every tree we cut down is replaced) is true, but isn't the whole story.
