The pursuit of fashion isn’t an easy thing. As consumers, we scrutinize garments and their prices wondering whether the quality is worth the price. It seemsabsurd to pay for a designer name or a specific fiber. There doesn’t seem to be a way to justification the price.
Reconciling Price and Value

After all, this is not an engagement ring which demanded funds for diamonds. This is mere clothing. The issue of price versus value is a common one. It is also, however, easily solved.
There are two reasons to devote higher amounts to garments and, once these are understood, purchasing can be a far simpler task.
No element determines the cost of an outfit more than the tiny words printed inside it. The label, which reveals the identity of a designer, allows individuals to form instant trust with a piece of clothing. Name recognition is vital: it ensures that all wearers can feel secure with their purchases. Items are known to be worth the price because they will last. Spending more for a particular brand is often recommended.
The old adages are often proven true and individuals do indeed get what they pay for. Fabrics that are hastily stitched (or suffer from weak fibers) will be reduced in price. This makes them appealing to those on a budget . . . until they rip mere months after being purchased. Quality is often only given to expensive cloths. These while more costly will offer durability for years. The price is therefore justified.
These notions drive the price versus value debate and allow it to be won by those craving good sense.
