Cheap Trends

I am really struck by the glut of bad clothes on the market right now. While at the coast I have had time to visit new places and browse the offering of new threads. Maybe it because things are targeted at a young crowd with less cash, but that is no excuse for poor construction. The designs have been ok, albeit simple and a throwback to decades I remember….just. But the fabric is often cheap. When things are meant to stretch it doesn’t, when a few extra inches here would make something elegant it is too short. Has this been your experience as you have shopped lately?
