I've just seen a pop-up ad on HOL for a Ralph Lauren polo shirt costing £139. Is that a rip off or what? It seems well over the top to pay that much for a short sleeved, casual shirt. They're not even well made.

I have bought a couple of polo shirts and their casual shirts from a RL outlet, but only at well discounted prices. The quality is really poor and certainly not worth the full retail price. I pledged not to buy again.

Anyway, this poor VFM thing just struck me and wondered whether you thought differently. Is a designer label really worth having...at any price?

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

I’ve always found the Lacoste shirts better quality and they usually cost 60/70 quid the Bicester village outlet is usually cheap for Ralph and Lacoste

I once bought a couple of Lacoste shirts in Turkey for a couple of quid each. They assured me they were genuine, who was I to argue

Went to Florida just prior to lockdown and purchased a Polo shirt in an outlet for a fraction of that price. Is that a genuine price?

Can't beat Ebay imo.

My slazenger stuff perfect at a fraction of the price.

Amazon expensive sizes from another dynasty.

I proudly wore my favourite and most expensive designer shirt with Gootchey blazoned across it for a couple of weeks before its first wash.

Only then did I find the ex-England cricketer's clothing line never took off

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

Never got the label thing. Your just being shafted most of the time, quality plain white tee shirt, £9.95, quality plain white tee shirt with a tick on it £29.95.

There are designer brands and then there are designer brands which don't have Boss, CK, and the usual suspects emblazoned upon them.

I have a pair of Meyer jeans, beautifully made with exquisite detail. The best bit is, they're more exclusive than the High Street designer stuff.

While not designer in the expected sense, I like Crew Clothing offerings which are reliably good quality.

I bought a real Rolex watch for $15 in Hong Kong. Why pay 000s in London ?

Florida has incredible bargains. I hate shopping but Ross - Dress for Less is great.
