Looks like it's going to be a nice day today, it certainly looks bright enough.
SB the last shirt I bought myself was from Cecil Gee on the internet, It cost me £90 and was well worth the money. I only ever wore one shirt from Primark as my wife bought it because it looked like the type of shirt I wore (how little women know). I wore it once lest she felt insulted, she put it in the wash and it came out half the size it went in. She has never bought anything else for me from there since.
Phil I had the same experience with socks from Primark. To be fair to them , i think it is mainly aimed at teenagers, particularly girls, who only wear things twice and then throw away, so it doesn't matter to them if it shrinks - to hell with the environment. The firm certainly does well. Its headquarters are in Reading, and i sometimes have a chat with one of its buyers, in my favourite Reading pub. When you are ordering 500,000 bras in one sitting, you must be doing well.
