The simple fact is that people recycle their clothing style years before anything from BR or JCrew even comes close to "disintegrating".
What specific items from Epaulet do you like? (pants? jackets? socks?)
Then stop playing rugby in your BR sweaters, you fool.
If BR or JCrew stuff actually "disintegrated immediately" there would be class action lawsuits.
In reality, even shit from the dollar store doesn't "disintegrate immediately"
