A typically brilliant Philip Castle illustration to accompany an article by Shirley Flack on inflation and the effect on clothes prices at the time. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Although I would kill for the quality you were getting for your inflated prices in 1974. And, naturally, I always recommend shopping second hand anyway!
One thought on “Why your clothes cost so much”
Depressing that nothing changes but, in fact, got worse.
Price increases back in the early 1970s were small & slow compared to today!
Average wage back then was about £10/15 pw so buying from a designer was unaffordable BUT there were cheaper alternatives.
Not so today.
Corporates took over & destroyed talent.
