Can't go wrong even if you can only wear them a couple of times. Hot.
#10
mumbojumbo
Primark's socks look like normal socks ... until the first wash when they start pilling. :(

Agree. I bought some last year and the amount of lint that came off them was huge. Left a mess around the house for weeks after.

Unlike all the other High Street suppliers of clothing who employ ladies from Putney on £11.40 an hour, 5 weeks holiday plus Wednesdays off for tennis. Get real!

I bought a cheap pack from Home Bargains and discovered the stitching at the toe end was vertical across the whole 5 digits. Damn uncomfortable.

The kids who work in the primark factories earn a great deal more than other indian labourers....A goan fisherman earns about 25 rupees (35p) a night.

I can see both sides. Thing is though you can get things not far off primark prices in the sales of some other shops, and you know its better made. Prices are cheap but when you ratio it to the time the clothes last, it probably isn't much cheaper if any. Well thats my thoughts anywho.

Nobody works for less than the alternative. That's all there is to know.

Primark has many different suppliers, some of the stuff they sell is quite good quality and some isn't, you need to judge each line on it's own merit.
#18
Primark socks are just as good as any other, and if they get lost then they can be cheapy replaced.

Also fact they are black means no odd socks :D
#19
for £1 for 7 pairs its a bargain even if you only get a few uses out of each pair
banned#20
whats the point, why not just get some decent socks which will actualy last a few washes?
#21
The last pair of primark socks I bought already had holes in them rofl.
#22
if they are the same ones i got they are rubbish wont last a day.

Don't buy Primark - in Britain we believe kids should be in schools not in factories - many of our ancestors founded this right over a hundred years ago and yet some still instead this should continue in other parts of the world. Colonialisation and slavery for cheap socks - not for me! Always cold.
Can recommend some excellent and affordable British made socks that will last and won't make your feet sweat as much as these Poly/cotton. Cheap, poor quality is a false economy, not a hot deal.

The great thing about these socks is not only are they cheap, you can also save a fortune on your electricity bill....plenty of walking and plenty of static!

Poor quality socks. Also you have to go in Primark to buy them and no deal is worth that nightmare!!

I picked up the multi-coloured 7 pack last year and it was only £1 then...and I still wear the socks to this day! Am I the only one to have a positive Primark Sock experience?!?

no,am still wearing my primark socks i got god only knows how long ago,i totally love primark ...not as much as i love the snobbery on here though...yeah ok,so Primark aint to everyones cup of tea...but never heard of each to their own and all that...i dont understand when people **** something off just cause its cheap,erm,this is a site for bargains,if you dont want a bargain why bother coming here,and why bother even opening the thread when it clearly states primark in the title....

as for the sweat shops,do your homework,if it wasnt for the so called sweat shops/factories...a lot of children would be out on the street prostituting themselves.

as for the socks,they arent my cup of tea,but for a quid,i think they deserve some heat

...and wherever these snobs buy their socks, do they think they are not made by similar setups? Really? The anti-Primark sentiment is all well and good but I do not exclusively see a Jeremy Kyle guest clientèle style in there, I see all walks of life - so a fair percentage must be very two faced!

Get real. I'm not condoning child labour at all, however, if you think that by spending a bit more and not shopping in Primark you are not buying into child labour then you are very sadly mistaken. There is a good chance that any cotton garment you buy on the high street will be made from cotton from Uzbekistan because this is the cheapest cotton and thus most widely used. Children are forced to pick the cotton which prevents them going to school and exposes them to the pesticides and other toxic chemicals that are sprayed on the cotton. Despite what the high street store tells you, it really couldn't give a flying f**k about the people who grow the raw materials/make the clothes. Philip Green, CEO of Arcadia Group (which owns high street stores such as Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Topshop, Wallis and BHS) didn't become a multi-billionaire by paying workers a fair wage. He did it by maximising profit which means screwing over the people at the bottom.

They always have vids on youtube, about primark hauls. And it's always some pretty 16 year old, sho looks like she has just come back from the hairdressers, and she ALWAYS says.

"well i bought this, just because it's cute". They always usse the word `cute`.

I wonder if they care about child labour?. They always seem to shop every week there.

Let me find you one

This is just the first one that came up in the search
