Thought for the week - quality v quantity part 1
Over the next few weeks I would like to debate this issue on the blog and today's post is just to kick the debate off.
There are two elements to the quality v quantity rationale. One is obviously it is deemed to be better to have a wardrobe of quality items that will last you years rather than lots and lots of cheaper disposable items. The quality angle is now perceived as more environmentally favourable adding weight to the debate of less is more.
However the other aspect of this debate is that of wealth and class - does the quality debate denote status/breeding(class)/intelligence versus the masses/lack of breeding/ignorance.
When you buy an item of quality do you feel superior style/fashion wise?
