Yeah, mine are beyond the needle & thread stage as they're all worn thin around the holes. I try to remember that I don't buy frivolous pointless clothes and wear everything to deth or it goes to a charity shop if still usable.

Suspect that either of my two offerings would be quite itchy and suspect thrush inducing.

Makes me wonder who would buy them.

I think it was George Orwell did a nice explanation as to why folks buy cheap "posh" stuff or "luxury" items rather than decent stuff.
Probably in "the road to Wigan Pier" (which is a canal quay, I visited it once killing time waiting for a train after a meeting in Wigan.  8 hours travel for a 4 hour meeting (+lunch)
In the dark, all views are the same.

I think this covers the relevant part of Orwell: http://www.telelib.com/authors/O/OrwellGeorge/prose/RoadToWiganPier/wiganpierpart_5.html

It is a bit long but is one of the more comprehensive quotes of that part of the book.
