There are certain items where investing in quality is a good idea -- shoes are a great example -- but like many others, I can't justify $100+ t-shirts and the like.
My tune might change if I was ever making enough to justify that kind of expenditure, though.
I agree with you dude. (yay! let's hug?)
At this point, I feel like there's the marketing side that highlights the points that people want to hear, and then there's the actual fabric and notion sourcing, sewing side, the latter is true quality, and frankly, you get a huge mix of brands in the perceived 'quality' camp, some of which belong and some of which do not belong.
Uniqlo is fairly well made, across the board, FWIW. I've torn apart a lot of clothes recently with a seam ripper, so you guys might be surprised....
