At a departmental store this afternoon to buy something because it is the sale season then I came across some shirts that cost an arm and a leg ... "vintage" it says on the label. What vintage? Low quality more like.
Most clothing seems to have the constant ... poor quality, functionality poor to acceptable, fashion so so (not that I know) ...
Then I checked out the "plastic" shirt i.e. fleece ... really? £50 after discount!
Then I checked the quilt blanket feather stuff jacket ... really? £200!
Jeans ... bloody hell ... £90 for a pair of jeans! The material is so thin I doubt it will last more than a year with constant wear. Checked the jeans' pocket ... that would not last two weeks for me with all my keys in them.
I mean WTF ... where are all those quality clothing?
Jumper ... WTF! 15% wool? Thin like paper ... WTF! Saw a reasonable thick "proper" jumper (still 90% wool made in China) ... £80! WTF!
I only managed to buy a "jumper" from NEXT for £20 because I thought it was ok in terms of functionality, a plastic base layer for £10 from Millet and a shirt for £20 from a Debenham with thicker material.
