One of the largest financial scams of today, and the huge elephant in the room – fashion. And especially Men’s fashion. Ever since this dystopian reset that was engineered last year, the clothing retail world has been flipped upside down. Not sure if you’ve actually noticed.
First of all, the main issue is that, currently, no brick and mortar clothing establishment is allowing operational fitting rooms. As the retailer Cotton-On displayed in their stores, “Be Kind. Our fitting rooms are closed”. I guess a little over a year ago, trying on clothes in the dressing room, by oneself, wasn’t kind.
Viruses, whether man-made or not, do not hang out on surfaces, or on clothes hangers, mirrors or on dry fabric. Unsurvivable. Remember when everyone thought you could get HIV from hugging a person? Same thing. Come on folks.
At-any-rate, now we are forced to pay for clothes, that we aren’t even sure fits us appropriately. Yet we still have to pay full price with zero autonomy. Get home, finally size them on in real life, then take them back cause clearly I wasn’t able to tweak anything at the store.
I guess online shopping is the only viable option if I want a regular rotation of gym and casual attire. BUT online shopping SUCKS. Shipping costs. Delivery taking weeks on end. Return shipping costs. Being delivered from third world, who knows from where and from what countries. Images are never colored corrected. Sizes are all over the place. Cheap materials. Bad tailoring. The prices for casual and gym wear is through the roof! And the quality is almost always on the lower end.
In my opinion, any Joe Schmoe out there can now promote trash products and merchandise online via popular social platforms. And you never know if their merchandise is even of superior quality before you pay these vultures. It’s trashy, greedy and lacks common empathy.
That’s Capitalism. Though frustrating, I wouldn’t want it any other way. Free market reigns, however, with many asterisks.
