This was what I thought, but I know a few people who are buyers for major chains


You mean, you just Googled it.

Incidentally, I once heard that some of the clothes in Topshop and Primark are actually the same garments, the only difference being which shop stuck the label inside it.


No- this comes up a lot, and I know a few people who are buyers.

The simplest answer is the right one on this. It's nothing to do with the cloth, or the shipping. It's just supply and demand. The clothes themselves cost virtually no different. It's the fact that a shop can market them at a higher price that matters.

I guess that's the simplistic view.

You're right, 'shops charge the amount the people will pay' is quite an insightful piece of commentary.

It's times like this that those 15 degrees really shine through. Worth every penny of the 150-200k tuition fees.

Oh come on dude, there is no way that my post was a flame and I don't think Sym's deserved to be removed either. Think you're the one whose lunar cycle is acting up.

Who told you that?


Your dad. He said he was initially attracted to your mother's huge tits but regrettably the kids got their mothers brains, or lack of.
