My good friend Betsy recently noted the rash of cheap and cheesy off the rack clothing items that are available seemingly everywhere. Flimsy and highly flammable fabrics, poor (or just fast) workmanship, each article requiring inter-continental shipping lanes to reach us.
Are these the ‘throwaway’ clothes we learned about a couple of years ago? Those things we wear for a season and then toss? ‘Good’ business I’m sure: the stores selling this stuff are ensured repeat purchases. As long as prices remain low enough to warrant buying new things every year.
Isn’t this low price already too high though?
