Some plonker at House Of Fraser decided to throw a group of ties in a 70%-off bargain bin along with a t-shirt whose selling point was velcro-backed, detachable, letters of the alphabet. Several of the t-shirts letters had come off and stuck to tie, almost literally ripping them to shreds. Â There were sseveral ties of a single style that I wanted, but every single one of them was torn or frayed. Â They weren't even worth the 70% off price - and that was laughably cheap. I'm not sure why this incident infuriated me so much; I suppose just because it was so fucking dumb and that no-one seemed to care nice objects were getting destroyed. What's even more insulting is, the t-shirt that buggered them up was a piece of gimmicky crap. Edit: I did find a nice Hackett tie, Â£20 instead of Â£50. Â I also got a Daniel Hechter one for Â£4.50.
