Fashion is one of those areas where price and quality can vary wildly. Shopping in Primark compared to shopping on Bond Street in London.
Plain white T-shirts are a very good item of comparison – I mean, how much differential can there be? Two squarish pieces of white cotton sewn together with holes left for your arms and head. Well, a lot it seems.
M&S fashion is almost universally trusted to be of more than adequate quality. Their £6 T-shirt is made using StayNEW™ technology which reduces bobbling, something that cheap clothes are oft known to do.
Would you be happy to pay £125 for one from Harrods? Granted, this Helmut Lang-designed one contains the “finest cotton and cashmere blend” – but is that really worth an extra £119? Perhaps it is if money is no object.
