      you guys know there’s different grades of this stuff right?

      >Zara
      >fully wool
      the lifespan for Zara "quality" clothes is < two years

      I’m aware there’s different grades of wool but I don’t think it makes too much of a difference. Most sheep are “merino” nowadays because the breed was rapidly proliferated as soon as someone managed to get some of them out of Spain. Even where I live the local variety (south country Cheviot) is more for meat than for wool (it’s something like 50p for all the wool on one sheep so it’s more of a side hustle; this is also proof that we’re more than capable of making clothes here economically it’s just that we literally can’t be arsed).
      Received the cardigan in the post. It’s good quality and actually better quality than some of the wool jumpers I’ve bought in the past from white stuff (which is more upmarket than Zara but still the sort of thing you find on the high street).

        There’s no changing nature, it just follows whatever the NPC normies crave at the moment, the current big thing right now is the hate of everything plastic/polyester/etc, along with ‘stealth wealth’ and ‘old money’ so they just get the lowest quality chink wool they can find and assemble it in Bangladesh with kid slave labor.
        The NPC normie stupids see ‘100% wool’ or ‘100% cotton’ and go into this consumerist frenzy thinking they are getting ‘quality’ only because it’s not the plastic goyslop they are used to from zara.

        Nothing has changed, your ghastly oversized cardigan is still a trendy abomination that will look ridiculous in 2 years tops except now it’s made from ‘le based wool’ instead of ‘le goyslop polyester blend’. But you already bought it, you fell for it because you are a stupid and made them money. Based god damn NPC normie bot.
        This is the beauty of fast fashion they adapt incredibly quickly and can trick the brains of the dumb smelly masses so easily

          I’m not Doug and if I was I would refrain from posting out of sheer embarrassment and shame at being Doug. Please do not lower me to his level.

          Also the cardigan is not oversized. It fits very well. It’s just that all Zara models are literal skeletons with no delts. That or I have big delts which is unlikely as when I do lateral rises it’s only 3 sets of 8 reps of 6 kilos (about 13lbs) per arm.

          Normally I would refrain from face posting but I will make an exception for you to defend my honour and prove that I am not Doug. Excuse the weird fit i am wearing the cardigan over my pyjamas to prove to you that I am

          Pic rel proves it isn’t oversized it’s just that Zara models are skeletons.

    You’re correct, the quality of Zara isn’t consistent at all. Presumably because it’s all made in by random detergent suppliers. Some of their stuff is pretty decent quality and will last years. Most people that shop at Zara only intend to wear their purchases for the next 3-6 months though.

      Yes. Only found out about it because I got a wool overcoat from it for Christmas. My mother nagged me to “treat myself” in the online Boxing Day sales because I’d spend barely any of my student maintenance money and had about £1000 left over from the first semester (I’m going to lump it with the rest of my savings as I’m trying to save as much as possible to buy land some day) so I got a cardigan that was on sale as it seemed like something decent that I would actually use in addition to being something that would stop my mother nagging me.
